For the last two years, we have worked to create a fun and engaging Hacktoberfest event that allows people to submit community templates across a number of categories. Things have gone well, but many people have asked if we could do something like that more often. It sounds like a great idea, so we've been thinking about making it workable.
Great news - starting this January, we're rolling out a contest for the best community template, and guess what? It's not just for a month or two – we're talking all year long! That's right, instead of waiting for Hacktoberfest, you can now take part in a community template contest every month.
Why You Should Get Pumped Up!
Our goals are simple yet ambitious:
- Boost Awareness & Usage: We want more eyes and hands on our amazing platform.
- Quality Template Expansion: Let's fill our community library with top-notch templates.
- Spotlight on Themes & Partners: Each month, we'll focus on specific topics, partners, and cool, new features.
- Promote Our Community Experts: Ultimately, the goal is to highlight and share the best of what our community has to offer... and that means you!
How Will the Winning Template be Chosen?
Your template will shine under the spotlight of:
- Stars: Those little stars on your templates aren't just for show – they count!
- Community Engagement: Comments and other forms of recognition matter.
- Overall Quality: We're looking for the crème de la crème.
- Our DevRel Team's Seal of Approval: They have the final say, but don't worry, they're super cool!
