Clarification on Marketplace review and submission judging

Hi all,
We’ve received feedback about confusion regarding the “Marketplace submission” period in the rules, and thus we’ve made the following clarifying updates to the rules and schedule:

  • The judging period will encompass all of February, and we’re eliminating the Marketplace Approval period as a standalone phase.

Submit free or paid themes for the contest!

Hi all, 

We've had a few questions from participants about whether or not they need to make their theme available for free to participate in the contest.

Both free and paid / for sale themes are welcome to participate in the contest!

We've updated the wording slightly in the Testing section (B., v) of the contest Rules to make it clearer that all themes, paid and free, will be made available to the Sponsor during the judging period for verification and testing purposes. We've also added it as an FAQ to the contest page. 

We're looking forward to seeing

Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your app meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline.

Need a primer on how the submission form works? Head over to the DevPost submission form tutorial.
