I know that Mark is feverishly working on the rules and the contest will be
launched shortly. Submissions will be open for about 1 month. Prizes,
Rules, and other errata will be provided at that time...stay tuned... :)
I'd love for you guys to promote the contest on your sites (for those of you
who have it)...we're working on a banner for the contest.

        I would suggest color, since color adds or detracts visual weight from
some design elements, so it is important. The Zakrello wouldn't looks so
