    The SPF Pure HTML & CSS competition - The Winners!

    Greetings everyone.

    On behalf of our forum administrator HAWK, and the rest of SitePoint forum Staff, I personally (Robert Wellock) as your leading Competition Judge (JUDGEcoder) for this competition; fanfare, please.

    Would like to inform you all that: The SPF Pure HTML & CSS Competition! Has now been judged and we'd like to announce the:

    COMPETITION PRIZE WINNERS!


    The competition prizes are as follows:


    1st prize - a T-shirt, SitePoint print book of choice and an I HTML cup
    2nd prize - a SitePoint print book, SitePoint PDF book of choice and an I HTML cup
    3rd prize - a SitePoint PDF book and an I HTML cup
    4th prize - an I HTML cup

    The winning SPF members are as follows:

    1. Candygirl
    2. YuriKolovsky
    3. Hueij

    Joint fourth place:

    4th. lbispo
    4th. Pikacsu81

    Well done people!

    As you may have noticed we have a new fourth place prize because we were so impressed with the entries. Plus our forum Administrator Sarah (HAWK) Taylor, loved the fact that so many people had competed and was aware of how close the results were for the top entries. So she generously allowed a fourth prize (which happened to be a joint score).

    We've had some superb entries from all levels of members and the judging wasn't an easy feat and involved telephone meetings amongst other things.

    None of the judges could predict who would win until the eleventh hour. The scoreboard was flashing like the London Stock Exchange... As the totals were input following; Shaun's [Shaun(OfTheDead)] scoring rulebook criteria and a placing pattern eventually formed.

    The top ten entries were extremely close for points; so even little the things regarding semantics and valid markup were considered during the judging process not just creativity and artistic merit or browser compatibility. There was a variety of strengths and weaknesses in all the entries so attention to detail mattered.

    I'd like to thank everyone on behalf of my other fellow Judges that has submitted a competition entry and congratulate the winning four members.

    I hope those who have competed fully enjoyed themselves and found the task as "challenging" and have had as much fun as we have it's the taking part that counts.

    Alas, as a 'special bonus' feature we will be providing a "Showcase of Entries" including some; never seen before special "Bonus Feature Entries".

    Including one showcase entry from the legendary Paul O'B and a selection from some of the staff in due course.

    Due to technical difficulties we are not able to showcase all entries just yet, but they will be online today or tomorrow.
    All entries are showcased over here: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/news...ml#post4839600
    Enjoy

    For now I've attached screenshots of the entries the winners submitted for all of you to have a look at.

    Just wondering, will all the entries be listed in order of ranking?

    I was just wondering how I (as a beginner) stacked up against everyone else. (seeing the screen shots of the winners, probably not very well)

    :O (<== thats me right now)
    Why didn't I get any PM telling me this?

    I don't consider myself to be a designer, so it was very challenging for me!
    But now I have a even harder challenge of choosing a book!! (pm recommendations appreciated)

    btw I temporarily uploaded my entry here so that you guys can see it until the technical problems at SP get solved.
    looks best in webkit and gecko

    @scout1idf
    I don't think they CAN rank all the entries, and it would only be possible by the general community.

    Yes, amazing stuff.

    (Don't make a fuss about it, but I find Pikacsu81's to be just fantastic: I'm not falling for the "simple" look, I can recognize a clear and smart vision when I see one, and Hueij's following in my preferences, with a solid look and feel, with just enough "twisted" stuff.)

    Also, good work to all the staff involved, and good effort. It was worth it in full.

    Wow! I totally didn't expect this, especially since I'm not a designer. I just looked at the other four winners and they did some things I would never think would be possible. All great entries!

    I can't wait to see the other entries, any chance that they will come online so we can see the code?

    Anyhow, thanks guys (and gals), this was fun.

    HAWK, is busily working on the 'technical difficulties' at the moment so you'll just have to wait that little bit longer before we can have the full showcase in operation.

    Hopefully the full 34 entry files will be available plus those "special" Staff 'Just for Fun entries'.

    We are only listing the top four places in the SPF. Albeit for everyone who has entered; we possibly could arrange to give them some 'feedback' via PM about how they fared or some constructive criticism.

    Because there was a wide range of abilities entering and some were only beginners we would prefer to be more discreet and personal to the entrants.

    You were up against strong competition Dan but I am glad you entered as your entry was rather interesting in design.

    Some Gremlins at Sarah's side I suspect... But no doubt you'll be hearing from her in due course (she is currently watching this thread). Anyway, what will you be drinking from the 'I HTML cup' Tim?

    Like I said previously we enjoyed judging the entries and it was nice to see everyone attempting to do their best; even if some were beginners and knew they had limited skills.

    haha , that cup is the best, and I will be drinking orange juice from it, orange juice or water, it will also be the first cup that is strictly mine, everyone in my family has their own except me so it means a lot to me.

    I got a bit overexcited and forgot what else I wanted to say.

    Yeah, thanks to everyone who organized this event, and let me win something too! oh and the participants for participating.
    and you Robert, for shouting at everyone

    Well, I will be showing it off at work so it will be coffee and lots of it. And maybe Friday afternoons when we close the week with a couple of beers, well... beer?

    Anyway, I forgot to thank you and the others of the team who made this possible. Thanks a lot, I really enjoyed it (and learned a lot in the meantime).

    Oh BTW, about being "discreet and personal" to "beginners", I think that if you do it in the open not only other beginners but every one (including me) would be learning from that. And since we all were beginners once no one will think any less of them. On the contrary, we would cheer their courage and maybe able to help them getting better. After all, we all started that way too. (And compared to your own Paul O'B we all still are noobs ).
