Competition Closed

Textplates ’07 has officially come to a close. I’m happy to say that the extension was very successful and resulted in over triple the original submissions.

The new templates will be appearing over the next day or so as their demo sites are prepared and published. Details on judging and the results announcement are also forthcoming.

Thanks to all of the great submitters, sponsors and anyone who helped by publicizing or otherwise participating in the competition. You’ve helped make Textplates ’07 a huge success.

Stay tuned for the results.

Textplates '07 Extended

The competition ended yesterday evening with only 11 templates (a couple of them are awaiting their demo site creation). The flood of last-minute submissions I was expecting never came and I was left futilely refreshing my email deep into the night.

I would like to at least be able to give away all of the prizes, so I’m extending the deadline an extra two weeks until 11:59PM EST on Wednesday, July 11th. For those who have already submitted your templates, thank you for your contributions (and punctuality). You may submit revisions or updates until the new deadline or why not get started on a second submission?

Please help spread the word: post about it on your blog, tell a friend, whatever you can do. If you’re unfamiliar with the CMS, feel free to contact me for some tips or check out some of these helpful articles.

Update: Grab the PSD

And we're off...

The first template is in, say hello to Texty, and with the opening template comes the introduction of new feature at Textplates, the Template Browser.

No need to worry about whether or not a preview is down or moved, the templates in the browser will be available forever.

Stay tuned for more updates and check out the forum.
