We’ve teamed up with the crew at Infectious for the first-ever “I <3 Blogging" design contest!

Infectious laptop design contest

Show off your creative talent and express why you love blogging (and WordPress) through an original design, to be printed and sold on laptop and iPhone skins to adoring bloggers everywhere.

Winning designs will be sold in the Infectious store and shown off on the backs of laptops and iPhones the world over. Winners are chosen by community vote on Infectious, with the final say made by an all-star judging panel: Matt Mullenweg, Matt Thomas, Derek Powazek, and Team Infectious.

Check out the awesome prizes in store for the winners (that could be you!):

Other Winners will receive:

  • $100 cash
  • $400 of Infectious products
  • WordPress t-shirts
  • 5% of net sales from the skin design

The contest begins today and ends on March 31, giving you plenty of time to get those gears working and submit your design for consideration. Click here to get started.

If you’re anxious to show off your love for blogging, you can buy this rad iPhone skin designed exclusively for the “I <3 Blogging" contest for less than the cost of a space upgrade.
