Last Friday the Sandbox Designs Competition was announced.
This competition is being administered by me, Scott of plaintxt.org. Basically the competition is strictly based in design and will be for CSS style sheets for the Sandbox theme, much like Alex King's WordPress CSS Styles back in February of 2004.
So 2004 was a long time ago. A century in the world of blogging.
Basically designs have two months to create and submit designs. First prize is currently US$500. Second is US$300. Third is US$200. There will also be a number of runner-ups, who may receive honorariums or cash prizes, depending on sponsors.
