We’re very excited about the release of Fill Colors and we’re sponsoring a contest to let you showcase your skills and talent in Flex skinning.


One Adobe Flex Builder 2.0 license

(Thank you to Ted Patrick for providing the prize!) 

The Challenge

Here’s an opportunity to show off your best creations.  We will pick the best Flex skin based on 2 judging criteria:

  • Design
  • Technical merit

We are looking for skins that are interesting and impress us with appealing presentation or technical complexity.  We also want to encourage anyone who’s never used Adobe Flex to participate, so don’t worry if you’re new to Flex. We want you to have fun and experiment!
