Based on popular demand, the judging for the GUI Olympics has been pushed back to May 4th to give skinners more time to put together their skins and themes.
In particular, Winamp and IconPackager events won't begin until the second week of May since those two categories seem to be the areas that authors felt pressed up against the deadline the most.
The GUI Olympics is a inter-website contest sponsored by a host of companies including Neowin, Stardock, nVidia, ATI, Nullsoft and others. The 3 categories for the contest are visual styles (in WindowBlinds format), Icon themes (in IconPackager format), and Winamp 5 (freeform or classic).
All submissions must be new and be exclusive to the GUI Olympics (after the contest is over submissions can be uploaded anywhere). Nearly $20,000 in cash and prizes are being given out to the nearly 20 events involving the 3 categories. Submission can be updated as often as the author wants.
