Few weeks ago, we have introduced a new web publishing platform called Wix. Wix allows users to create stunning web content without the need to use high end publishing design packages and without the need to code. Wix enables anyone to fully customize their sites without being constrained by the typical template based solutions.
Today, Wix is exclusively offering WebAppers readers to participate in a web design contest and have a chance to win $1,000. Joining the contest is easy. You just need to follow 4 steps as below.
1. Register an account on Wix. And then send your Wix username to email@example.com in order to let us know you would like to join the contest.
2. You have 10 days to create a flash website or widget based on the Wix platform and customize it the way you like. The topic of the site must be hotel, spa or restaurant. You can use any content on the Wix site or upload your own media (png, jpeg, or swf). And then submit your work to firstname.lastname@example.org by 27th June 2008 6th July 2008 .
