Attention, attention all ecommerce designers, cool cats, and fresh princes. This is the final call for our 2014-2015 Shopify Ecommerce Design Awards!
Over the past four months, we’ve been collecting hundreds of supafly submissions from ecommerce designers all over the globe. But at long last, the deadline to enter our Design Awards is almost here.
If you’ve built a show-stopping, head-turning, mind-bending, or eye-popping original design for a Shopify store, you have until August 31 to enter it into the ecommerce design throwdown of the year.
What’s in it for me?
Not only will you earn mad street cred, but the top ecommerce designer will walk away with $5,000 USD and a feature story on the Shopify Partner Blog.
Second and third place contestants will win $1,000 USD and $500 USD respectively, and five honourable mentions will be featured on this blog.
Winners will be selected based on the overall aesthetics, creativity, and usability of the site. For full contest details about our judges, prizes, and competition rules, head on over to our competition announcement, or check out our official terms and conditions.
