(The Hosting News) – JotForm, a popular online form builder with over 1.5 million users, is launching the Web Form Design Awards, a contest recognizing the best form designs. All submissions must use the company’s recently launched Form Designer feature, which takes the time and hassle out of creating a beautifully designed form. Entries will be accepted from Tuesday, Nov. 4 through Thursday, Dec. 4., with the top prize receiving $7,500.
JotForm Founder, Aytekin Tank, said he was so impressed by what users were creating that he felt a contest was the best way to showcase the full capabilities of the new feature.
“After seeing the amazing forms our users were creating with our new Form Designer, it made us hungry to see more,” Tank said. “We’ve been completely blown away by how designers are using JotForm. We’re re-inventing the Web, one form at a time.”
The worldwide competition is open to anyone, with the contest comprising of seven categories, including: “The Best Form Design,” “Best Mobile Form Design Award,” “Best Survey Design Award,” “Best Contact Form Design Award,” “Best E-Commerce Form Design Award,” “User’s Choice Award” and the playful “Worst Form Design Award.”
The contest will be judged by well-known web designers, graphic designers, blog editors and book authors, who will award the grand prize for “The Best Form Design” of $7,500, and a $500 prize to each of the other category winners. All form design entries must be built utilizing JotForm’s Form Designer, and all form admissions must be fully functional to be considered. The Form Designer has extensive web design customization options, graphic design tools and an advanced CSS editor. The first 100 complete submissions will win a free T-shirt, and the winners will have their names promoted on the JotForm blog and Form Theme Store.
“Since the beginning of Internet, web forms have hardly changed. JotForm aims to fix that; end the stagnation; and invent a new future for forms. The Web Form Design Awards is another step toward this ambitious goal,” Tank said.
