EDIT: This contest has ended.

Hey, everyone!

It's a new year and the perfect time to start up some fun new stuff in the Community. Starting right now, we're going to be doing a series of monthly Community contests–letting you show off your creativity, design chops, and even win a few prizes. So let's kick this off!

Here's the challenge: Design an email that uses ALT text in a creative way. What you design is entirely up to you, so long as you include some images with ALT text. The more innovative the use of ALT text, the better!

We'll be judging based on creativity, overall design, and code implementation. The contest ends Monday, January 26th. The Litmus crew will then judge the entries and announce the winner that Wednesday.


To have your entry counted, you must follow these guidelines:

  • You must be a Litmus Community member.
  • You must have a filled out Community profile, so that we can easily get in touch with you.
  • You must submit your design as a Builder embed in a comment on this discussion thread. Here's how to do that.
  • All entries must be submitted on or before Monday, January 26, 2015.


For this first contest, the winner will recieve 1 month of Litmus Plus and a Litmus care package full of Litmus swag.

Go forth and design some emails! If you have any questions, just leave a comment (along with your entry!).

And the winners are...

We honestly had a hard time picking our favorite entries, so we've decided to call it a tie. Both Michael Muscat and Rémi Parmentier are the winners of the first Community Contest. They'll both receive a free month of Litmus along with some Litmus goodies.

We'll be back next month with the second Community Contest.
