MIUI Skin Contest

This is something rather interesting that was brought to our attention by XDA member ChadHughes. As it turns out, MIUI is creating a big revolution in the world of the little green robot. So much, that there seems to be a contest involving this rom. Apparently, an internet investor has decided to put up a contest for MIUI themes world wide, involving some rather cool prices (a couple of names dropped for first and second place are iPad2 and Nexus S). All that needs to be done is to have a theme for this rom, which will be judged and compared against probably thousands of other themes. Without further ado, here is an excerpt from the organizer’s website:

    The First Global MIUI Theme Design Competition is on-going now! You have a chance to get your theme used by hundreds of thousands of worldwide MIUI fans speaking 23 different languages. Please submit your mini-theme including 20 commonly-used icons, a lockscreen interface and a piece of desktop wallpaper right now!

Great works will be displayed at www. zcool.com.cn and www. miui.com!

    The award-winning works will be embedded in MIUI system, available for global users to download. And the authors shall have the right to claim authorship.
