    Does anyone know of a great 99Designs, Design Crowd etc. WordPress plugin/theme? The only thing I can find is 350 Contest which is not WordPress-based. Thanks!

    fundify - you can find it on themeforest :)


    (disclaimer: I haven't actually implemented that theme, so I can't promise how well it works... but it has an almost 5-star rating from a large number of users)

    oops, crap, I'm sorry... that's crowdfunding, not crowdsourcing... :/

    Thanks Aaron, actually we run Fundify but for a different site, as you noted it's for crowdfunding.

    Heh, I was disappointed by the same thing... I found your post because I'm doing a similar search on behalf of a client. You're right that spotfinder looks like it'll require heavy customization — good luck! (I take it you feel it would be easier to start from there, than building your own from scratch inside WP? Maybe offering it for sale if your client relationship would allow that?)

    Thanks for calling my attention to agriya - I see they have quite a bit of nice-looking packages. Assuming the code is clean, I could imagine using one of them for a future project. Will have to keep them in my files.

    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful...

    I should've mentioned I'm going down the marketplace route with Spotfinder and the plugins mentioned - I gave up on the 99Designs-style project bidding theme route as nothing exists (yet?) sadly for WordPress.

    In other news, I spoke to Werkpress about developing a project bidding theme+plugin and they quoted $30,000.
