The contest submissions are open till October 31st 2008, you are required to submit your patterns to dev[at]flasheff[dot]com before this date in order to get a chance to win $2500. (3 prizes available*)
Each winner will get $2000 cache and $500 in discount coupons to be spent on

Also, all eligible submitted patterns will be instantly rewarded with a copy of FlashEff Premium Unlimited.
To get approved as eligible, each pattern have to meet the following rules:

1. You have to make sure it works correctly with FlashEff. Patterns that have functional issues will not be approved.
2. It is owned/developed by the same person/company that submits it.
3. The code should be open for us to evaluate.
4. No third party code should be used unless you have a written agreement that lets you use it.
5. You have to make sure it is not an illegal copy or a very similar approach as another pattern.
6. It should be submitted before October 31st 2008.

To select the best patterns from those that will be found eligible, we will evaluate each pattern by the following criteria: uniqueness, artistic look, visual quality, code quality and most of all: popularity. The final decision will be given by popularity, by vote. After October 31st we will publish all the submitted patterns as swf movies for people to choose between them and vote. The patterns earning the most votes will win.

*Up to 3 prizes are available as follows: Not more than 1 prize for each 10+ participants, 2 for 20+ and 3 for 30+. So, for example if only 10 participants have patterns that are eligible for the contest, only 1 prize will be given. One participant can win only one prize (even if he submits more patterns, this will indeed increase the chances to win)

Important! At least 1 but not more than 3 prizes will be given as stated above.

    Hi, I saw a bug on your video flash player (home page) when I try to change the timeline cursor:

    Error #2044: Unhandled NetStatusEvent:. level=error, code=NetStream.Seek.InvalidTime

    I have a little band width so could be the problem (but you should catch all the potential errors…)

    All the best and good luck 😉

    Hi, don’t know where to post this (nor where to contact you), well, just wanna tell you about a small typo in FlashEff Panel / Hide / Swap / useSwapInsteadHide -> the hint has a typo: ‘eanble’
    Anyway, very good job!

    I would like to participate at this contest but my flash knowledge aren’t good enough for sure.

    In the home page I checked your video and there is no error on it.
