Netscape 6 Themes Contest Underway!

Wednesday August 9th, 2000

With the release of Netscape 6 PR2 comes the start of the Netscape 6 Themes Contest. Grand Prize is a Philips Plasma-Screen TV, Second Prize is a Sony Digital Camera, Third Prize is an iBook Special Edition, and the prize for Honorable Mention (10 awarded) is a Diamond Rio PMP300 Special Edition. You may also find your skin included in the final release of Netscape 6!

If you're interested in creating a Mozilla skin, why not submit it to the contest as well? You might just walk away a winner. Visit the Themes Contest page now to learn more about the rules, the prizes, and detailed instructions and tutorials on how to create a Mozilla full-app skin.

The contest ends September 30th, so get to work!

UPDATE: There are also versions of the page translated into Japanese, German and French.

I quote....

No prize substitution except by Sponsor due to unavailability (in which case a prize of comparable or greater value will be awarded) or as follows: winners residing outside of the United States will receive the retail value of the prize in American Express Gift Cheques; if winner resides in a country in which American Express Gift Cheques are not freely negotiable, a substitute prize of comparable or greater value will be awarded.

Clearly, winners inside the United States have no choice as to their prize. And winners outside the United States have no choice as to whether they get Gift Cheques or not.

Is it weird to want to win 2nd place in a contest, because the 1st place prize is much less usable? I could find MANY uses for a digital camcorder, but a plasma TV is, well, a plasma TV. :)
