About the Competition

This competition was begun to bring originality in design to the Textpattern CMS. Prior to this competition, the only templates available have been ports from other popular systems such as Wordpress or Nucleus.

Last year’s competition was incredibly successful and resulted in over forty great templates, all of which are now freely available and have been downloaded over 100,000 times.

Submissions ranged from simple stylesheet switches to complex plugin/template creations, but all were created in the spirit of the Textpattern community and open-source.


This year’s panel of judges includes many illustrious figures in the web design world.
