This place is where 35000+ members are registered, a fair amount of them stepping by daily to share ideas, experiences, code, translations, knowledge, tips & tricks and fun around eZ Publish. How about all of them seeing, every day, a "Designed by <you>" on all pages ?

It starts on April, 21st, and ends on June 4th.

And that's not all...while the 3 best designs are rewarded, the best wins a Wacom Intuos design tablet and a free ticket to the eZ Conference in Berlin next june ! Read on to learn all details !
