Last year’s grand prize winner went to the creator of the WP Comment Remix plugin, and the list of winners includes a lot of great plugins over the last few years. This is a great contest for plugin developers, and even greater for WordPress users that benefit from the plugins that come out of it. Can’t wait to see what sorts of interesting new plugins we get this time around, and if the prizes are anything like last year ($2000, Dedicated server for a year, and more), it’ll be a nice perk for some plugin developers too.
