Last year we launched our first Customer Showcase Contest, and we were so pleased with the amazing sites that were submitted that we decided to make it an annual tradition! In the 2014 edition, we have upped our game with way more prizes from some of the best WordPress companies around. We can’t wait to see all of the great websites you have created over the past year, and we look forward to dishing out $12,000 in prizes to your top 3 favorite sites.

How It Works

Simple. You submit your best websites built using our themes using the form below. We will pick our top favorite sites and put them up for a community vote. The Elegant Themes community will vote on their favorite websites, and the top 3 winners will receive loads of amazing prizes! Do you have a beautiful website built using our products? Submit it for a chance to win! Don’t have a website yet? What are you waiting for, go make one! Without further adieu, let’s take a look at the goods:

    • Yep, go for it πŸ™‚

  5. oh man, I’ve got 3 cool Divi sites in development right now, but none will be finished by next week. grrr…

    Generous prizes, you guys are great!

    • There’s always next year πŸ˜‰

  6. Damn it was just about to update mine, can I get it done in time, the race is on! Best of luck to everyone entering πŸ™‚

  7. Thats awesome, just in time that I finished a work with Divi, it’s pretty cool I think.

      • Hi Nick,

        Is deadline till 12am next Tuesday or Wednesday including?

        Thanks,
        Timur

  9. I would love to upload more than one!

  10. Your Surveymonkey embed only allows for one entry. I can’t get the submission form again revisiting this page.

    • Sorry about that, it should be working now.

  11. All Submitted!

    *fingers crossed* Good Luck to everyone

  12. We have 10+ we would like to submit and after entering one, it just shows “Learn More About Survey Monkey”. How do we submit the others?

    • Try again, it should be open to multiple submissions now.

      • Hi Nick, I noticed I had to refresh the page each time to enter each new site individually. Should I be confident they were all successfully entered? Thx, Diane

  13. Nick,

    I am already a lifetime member, however, I am still waiting for your second theme after I bought my membership.

    You have so many prizes in this contest. but why only three winners? You can spread different prizes to more winners right. Like for example, Lynda membership as 4th prize, hosting as 5th prize and so on according to value.

    In this way, w can help more of your member win some prizes.

    • Yep +1…I agree!

  14. Awesome Deal!!! Can’t wait to see the results. πŸ™‚

  15. That’s me entered.
    Those prizes look fabulous.

  16. Oooo! I would have been excited just at the prospect of Rafflecopter and Elegant Themes memberships! I’ve been dying to get going with Rafflecopter. πŸ™‚

    Crossing my fingers and hoping I win! πŸ˜€

    Thank you for this amazing opportunity!

  17. Ok so i know im not going to win any design prizes as you guys did that for me πŸ™‚ but all my customers love my site and its how i get my tiling jobs and how i make my living, oh and its no1 in google too, so i thought id show you my site anyways because i’m proud of it πŸ™‚
    Really i just wanted to say thanks ET for making the web easy for those of us who aren’t techies but are interested in making fabulous looking websites, if that was your goal you reached it.

  18. Hi Nick & The Team!

    I cannot believe the prizes that are on stake. They really are fantastic!
    Will be submitting my 2 websites by next Wednesday.
    And also, is deadline till 12am next Tuesday or Wednesday including?

    It’s going to be one exciting contest! πŸ™‚

    Best of luck to all entering!

    Timur

    • I’d try to get them submitted by Tuesday to make sure you don’t miss the cutoff.

      • Hi Nick!

        Thanks for clarifying that! It’s good to know.

  19. Great – Thank you

  20. So excited to see all the finalists! Love it!

  21. Just at the Nick time! Can I submit site on my test servers built yet to go live? Also, why not spread the prizes for the best 25 sites? Just musing though. Nice pre wakeup post for Extra…

    • Online live websites will be accepted I am afraid. We went with 3 finalists because it’s standard procedure, but maybe we can do some runner-ups next year πŸ™‚

      • Nick,

        I have contacted customer support before buying a membership and I requested several times to atleast provide me a 10% discount. They said they didn’t have any discounts and the very next day after i bought the lifetime membership, there is a 10% discount hanging to the websites popups.I am very satisfied with your themes and i am always a happy customer but there is something more you are missing that makes me sad sometimes. You need to think about what context are for lifetime members. You need to think of contests that have at least a month deadline for submission.

        My request here on this post,
        Last year’s winners of this contest are now mostly using a different theme and there is nothing for you to showcase by linking to their websites. the same will repeat next year.
        So, My suggestion is to categorize the contest according to your main theme categories (For example, News/Magazine, Application, Photography, Blogging, Ecommerce, Personal, Portfolio, and so on.)

        By categorizing in this way will elaborate chances to use the prizes wisely. Please try to understand me here. Member who is already experienced in web field will not necessarily consider to learn something on Lynda (they might not have time) This experienced members may need extra control and may use Sucuri when gifted . Member how wins with magazine websites will definitely use prizes like MAXCDN and not much of other prizes. Member who have his own profile, protfolio website may use Lynda Prize to the fullest to expand. Members who submit more websites in the contest and who have most awesome website if won, may use ManageWP, WPEngine to the fullest (I feel this needs to be the first best prize; because here when you award them you can almost showcase all their websites). Paid membership websites or other coupon based websites if won may use OptinMonster Pro prize to the fullest.
        Members who use their portfolio themes may get essential grid plugins as a prize. Members who use your themes for photography may get slider revolution as the best prize to use. Members who building membership Websites will probably use Deluxe themes package to the fullest. Members who are not lifetime members but made some beautiful themes can be given lifetime membership as a prize.

        Please consider my suggestions at least for next year. I couldn’t participate in this contest as of now. πŸ™

        • I support this suggestion.

  22. Woow! So Many cool prizes. Awesome Work Team πŸ™‚

  23. I love to win this contests. Awesome prices ET πŸ™‚

  24. My “Divi” website will be in Dutch, no English. Is it ok to submit it to the contest?

    • Sure πŸ™‚

  25. I just launched my new Divi website this week.
    I think it’s a good contender.

    • Gerard,

      I like your new look site. its clean and fresh. I can see a lot of effort has gone into it.

      Cheers,

      John.

      • John,

        Yes, I have put a lot of effort in it.

  26. Nice! I should get those membership and enter this contest, those prizes are just waay too much not to enter πŸ™‚

  36. Submitted my book site for a lark. Uses Divi, and I think I’m done tinkering with it ahead of the cut off. ‘Thanks for using Survey Monkey’ notification appeared so I take it that means it’s in ok.

      Not sure if we’re going to do anything like this here in 2015. Maybe in 2016 though.
