Sebastopol, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2009
Web designers can win a free MacBook Pro or an iPod Touch just by designing a great web site using the new Webvanta hosted content management system (CMS).
Designers don't need to install any software to use Webvanta, and they can continue to use whatever HTML and CSS design tools they want. Unlike most other content management systems, designers have unlimited design flexibility with Webvanta.
Webvanta is the first CMS that makes it easy to create sites with structured content. Designers have reported that Webvanta enables them to create more powerful sites more quickly, making them more competitive and increasing their profits.
Designers can read the contest rules and sign up for a free account at http://www.webvanta.com/contest. The deadline for completed submissions is January 31, 2010.
Sites submitted to the contest remain the property of the designer; they can be sites of their own, or sites for one of their clients. Webvanta will provide free hosting for all submitted sites through the end of the contest, and the winners will receive free hosting until the end of 2010.
The submissions will be judged on the following criteria, weighted equally:
- Visual beauty
- Navigation and information architecture
- Effective use of the Webvanta database
The contest will be judged by a panel of top web designers, including Micah Bowers, Creative Director, Bluefire Productions; Bill Mead, Web Design Instructor, Art Institute, Sacramento; Andrew Crow, senior experience designer at Adaptive Path; Veerle Pieters, Founder and graphic/web designer at Duoh!; Elliot Jay Stocks, Freelance designer and author of Sexy Web Design; and Ryan Taylor, Head of Web Development, Infinite Path and producer of the Boagworld podcast.
