  • It Begins. The MMi Ultimate iPhone Theming Contest!
    Here at MMi we have always been into theming the iPhone ever since we first replaced the icons using some good ol' iPhuc back in 2007. Since then theming has advanced tremendously with innovations like Summerboard on Installer and finally ended up where it is at today with Winterboard and Cydia bringing many 100's of free user generated themes to the iPhone.

    We've been thinking to ourselves lately "we love iphone theming and we love giving away prizes." Combining the two together we are proud to bring you the MMi Ultimate iPhone Theming Contest where we are giving away hundreds of paid App Store apps!

    To enter simply create an iPhone theme and submit it to [email protected] within the next 10 days.

    The Details:
    • Themes should be in proper WinterBoard format. If you dont know how to do that, check our WinterBoard forum for help or Saurik's Winterboard page.
    • Themes should consist of at minimum:
      - Lockscreen
      - Sliders
      - Default icon replacements (Apple Stock apps and WinterBoard and Cydia).
      - .psd of your icon base so end users can create their own to match Alright well you don't have to include a .psd. People have presented me with countless reasons why they can't include a .psd so instead of me taking a half hour on each one of these I am changing the rules. We still STRONGLY recommend you include a .psd
      - battery
      - 100% original work. No gathered images you found from LOST media kits or Britney Spears TMZ shots. This is REAL original themes. "Well I put these all together myself from all around the net" means you didn't make it. You just found it. A Leopard theme is NOT original - first, there are dozens out there already, and second, there is NO original work done in a Leopard theme - you're just pulling icons from your laptop. This is for ORIGINAL work. No you CAN'T use just anyone's glyph - artist's permission needs to be granted, unless it is royalty free work to begin with, in which case a link to proof of that is needed.
      - Do not enter a theme you have already published it publically on Cydia. New themes only.
      - Any more is DEFINITELY helpful. UI, HUD, keyboard, etc - all are good and will help your cause.
    • Please include appropriate screenshots while submitting.
    • All themes entered will be posted to Cydia on the MMi source - and the author will retain full rights and ownership of all materials.
    • If we think it sucks, we WILL not post it to Cydia.
    • Contest runs for 10 days (submissions must be in by Midnight March 16th).
    • Entries will be voted on publicly and the top 5 picks will be voted on by a board to choose the top 3. Users that registered after March 5th can vote but the vote will not count in final standings (defense against fraudulent voting). Voting will last two days.
    The Prizes:
    • First Place gets one of every app below and $125 iTunes Gift Card
    • Second Place gets one of every app and $100 iTunes Gift Card
    • Third Place gets one of every app and $75 iTunes Gift Card
    • Notice I said we are giving away hundreds of apps. There are only forty forty one forty two listed below. That means a ton of ppl that don't place in the top three will be receiving all of the apps or a large chunck of the apps! Even if you don't win odds are good that you will win!
    Check out all the cool apps we are giving away! Major props to all the companies that stepped up to support the contest!

      can themes that havent been released on cydia qualify? (like pretty new themes)

      or can existing ones at least enter and not be eligble for prizes or something. just a little disappointing considering a theme i worked on was just released and i would like to at least see it here.

      100% original? What qualifies as "original"? Do you have to make all of the app icons yourself, without using anyone else's images (including Creative Commons License)? Does this include sounds as well?

      Thanks a lot for giving me the credit

      You can submit *very recent* stuff, only if not on cydia.

      Regarding originality issues, here's what Kyle has to say.

      You shouldnt just do this for the prizes, its not all about what you can get, but what you can give the community. I'm doing this not for the prizes but for the fact I get satisfaction with having my themes on other people's iphones/ipods. And that my theme could be someone's somewhere's perfect theme.
