Pligg CMS offers up a template contest to entice designers. Win cash and prizes!

Pligg CMS began a template design competition today that offers cash prizes to the top Pligg templates.

The purpose of the competition is to foster new Pligg templates and to give Pligg designers an opportunity to earn both prominence and money for their efforts.

Pligg's recent Design Gallery addition to has been a great resource for Pligg designers. It showcases the best Pligg templates and lets users comment and vote on Pligg sites.

This contest will bring some fresh styles to Pligg CMS for others to work from and hopefully make it easier for designers to find a template closer to their specifications without having to alter much.

All templates entered into the contest must select an open source license so that others will be able to re-use the template on their own projects.

Every qualified entrant will receive a $20 Pligg Pro gift certificate to spend on Pligg modules or templates.

Winners will be announced shortly after the October 11 deadline. See the contest announcement page for more details and official contest rules.
