It's Like the Oscars® for WordPress®

trophy

Submit your favorite WordPress Theme, Plugin, Site or Personality, heck add yourself!. From all the submissions, Nominees will be chosen based on number of popular votes, and after a final round of voting the Winners will be awarded the "best of" honors for the year based on your votes and by our panel of judges. Did we mention our sponsors are helping us with the most massive giveaway of WordPress goods; ever?

  1. 1. Final Round of Voting (Begins late Nov)

    The final curated list of Nominations for each category will be chosen from all the submissions and a final round of voting will take place starting later this month. This separates the busta's from the tru playas. We're kidding about the bustas, everyone is a winner right?
  2. 2. Call for Submissions (Closed)

    All new submissions to be entered into the running for the chance to win Honors for 2010 are no longer being accepted. You may still Register, and participate in the final round of voting as the deciding vote is cast for each category.
  3. 3. Winners Announced (Early Jan.)

    Winners from the pool of nominees will be chosen based on number of votes and input from our panel of judges. Winners will get the Glory and the honors of being the "Best of" for 2010.
  4. IMMA LET YOU FINISH

    VOTE TOTALS WILL NOT BE SHOWN for a very simple reason. Popularity contests are kinda stupid. Think of it like a secret ballot, this way everyone has a fair shake. Vote totals will be be revealed for the Winners come ceremony time.

Vote & Win Stuff

From time to time prizes will be given away by our wonderful corporate sponsors to random members of this site. All you need to do is Register, submit your faves, and VOTE. A tweet or 2 would not hurt your chances.

Pick the Winners?

You choose the winners for the most part, and a little help from our panel of judges. Popular Vote tallies will determine who makes it from the submission phase to the nomination phase. The final "best of" winners will be chosen based on a blend of the total number of your votes and judges ballot.

Who are the judges?

It's a surprise. The Honors judges come from all areas of the web industry. Some judges even work with WordPress on a daily basis but not all of them. Just to keep it squarzeey, no judge may cast a vote on a nomination in a category they or their business has an entry in.

Awards Gala

There will be an open invitation blue tuxedo awards gala in the new year to bestow the "best of" honors on all the winners. Location and Date TBD.

lightScape

lightScape is another highly customizable theme that comes with 14 built in styles. lightScape can be used as business, blog or portfolio theme. It will allow you to set up static front page with featured posts slider and static page content, and you can use slider on any other template.

Footer can be part of the content area, or can be stuck at the bottom, full width. Top header is added to allow for another menu and some additional elements like search box or social network icons. Content background can be transparent or opaque, and there are few more special effects you can turn on or off.

As all the other themes, this one fully validates for both XHTML and CSS 2.1. It’s fast to load compared to similar themes from other developers and easy to customize thanks to our xScape Framework control panels.
