pMachine have just announced The ExpressionEngine $15,000 shootout, a competition in to find the best, new EE–based sites. I’ll be a judge on the competition along with Colly, Jason, Molly, Scrivs,Cameron, Narayan, Emily Chang, Jesse, Max and Om Malik.

Contest entries can be Commercial, Personal, and Core licensed sites so anybody with an EE powered site can enter.

So, what can you win? Well, there are 10 winners for each category: Commercial, Personal and Core. There will be $5000 worth of prizes to be won per category, in addition to EE licenses, with the winner taking home $1000 (and the glory!). Each entry will be judged on innovation, excellence of design, usability, and content.

If you’ve got a project coming up and been meaning to give EE a go, now is your chance to do that and possibly earn yourself some cash and plenty of back–slapping in the process. Pop over to pMachine and get yourself the free Core version of EE.
