Now, what’s this contest about?
The story of Pixel Dribbble
As some of you might know, I (Sagi) am also the owner of a local design blog in
Israel called Pixel Perfect
2 years ago I carried out a Dribbble contest in Israel, which culminated in a UI
exhibition for designers, where we displayed the top 100 submissions. More than 400 designers, developers,
entrepreneurs and others from the tech community attended the event in Tel Aviv.
A 2nd Pixel Dribbble contest
just started, and this time I decided to open it up to the whole world.
What does that mean?
means that now the contest will be open to all HUI readers and the worldwide community. We at HackingUI, along with
top Israeli Designers, are giving away 20 invites, and selected works will be curated, printed out and displayed in
Wait – 20 invites to Dribbble?
We gathered invites from some of
Israel’s top designers, who will also be judging the competition. In addition, this year Dribbble is officially
sponsoring the exhibition (along with some more great companies).
