Winners Announced: $41,000 Web Developer Competition

by

In our massive $41,000 competition, developers were encouraged to submit their best plugins and mobile components to CodeCanyon, our premium marketplace for code components. After much deliberation amongst the Nettuts+ and CodeCanyon teams, we've finally picked our winners!


Congratulations

Before I reveal the winners, I just want to congratulate and thank each of the participants. Almost all of the items were of excellent quality -- it truly is a pity that we could pick only a handful as winners. We were still deciding between the top six up until just a few hours ago. Nonetheless, many of these items will be featured on CodeCanyon, and in upcoming round-ups on Nettuts+.

To the winners, we'll be in touch with you shortly to hook you up with your prizes! Oh, and congratulations, you magnificient people!
