Two weeks ago OpenCart Limited announce a Theme Contest at their forum. There is not much information why the contest is held. We predicted it’s related to a standard theming discussion. But apart from that, this competition is indeed a good approach to increase OpenCart themes variety that work seamless with extensions, just like default theme.

  1. 1st : 500USD
  2. 2nd : 250USD
  3. 3rd : 100USD

This contest will end at 31st January 2013. And there is no information when the winner will be announced.
