CyanogenMod has come a long way from being a small group of independent developers to a proper company. The most popular custom ROM for android now invites artist and content creators to submit Themes for Cyanogen OS as part of its “Theme Design Challenge”.
Participants can submit themes modifying mobile user interface, including wallpapers, icons, fonts, boot animations, and controls. Selected themes and many more will be part of Cyanogen’s themeing apps. Users can use Cyanogen’s initial release of Themes Studio, a tool to upload and publish themes to submit their entries.
These themes will be available in Yu brand of Micromax devices coming to India this December. Micromax will retail these Cyanogen OS based smartphones exclusively through online retail stores.
To participate in the contest, you will have to fill an entry form. Then visit Theme Studio and create an account. Stick to the theme guidelines on ‘guidelines and documentation page’ at the source link below and submit your themes via Themes Studio. First 10 entries will win a Cyanogen T-shirt.
All those interested can submit their entries by 5 PM (Pacific Time) on 14th December 2014. Cyanogen will judge your entries based on creativity and uniqueness of design, artistic expression and visual effects and Compliance with the design template and inclusion of the required design elements.
Winners will get a Cyanogen Branded Gear and a device of their choice from two unannounced devices, most probably Micromax YU smartphones. Winners will be announced on December 18th 2014.
