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.
