Every year WPMU.org challenges all participating authors to put their skills to the ultimate test. Winners take home the glory of being in the WordPress spotlight, plus a fair amount of cold hard cash. Today the pot is at US$ 1,000 but team WPMU is still seeking more donations to add.
The rules are simple:
- Make an awesome plugin and upload it somewhere on the ‘net (WPMU recommends WPMU DEV http://wpmudev.org/)
- Register as a contributor at WPMU.org and write up your plugin for general consumption.
- Vote. Wait. Vote. Wait. And while you’re waiting make sure you vote.
In addition to traditional WPMU plugins the contest also supports submissions for BuddyPress, WordPress MU’s new-ish bundled collection of extras specifically for social networking.
All submissions must be made by October 16th. For more information, including details on becoming a sponsor if you're in a charitable mood, redirect yourself.
