Win an iPod Shuffle and extras

win-ipod-shuffle-silverJust before Christmas I received my first ever cheque from Google’s Adsense program and, after I had taken out the amount for next year’s hosting I thought I would spend the money on giving something back to you all as a way of a thank you for visiting All About iWeb. So I had the idea of running a competition to let you all show off your work; so if you want a chance to win a sparkly, brand new iPod shuffle and accessories read the rules below. Good Luck.


The rules of the competition are simple; to enter all you have to do is let us know the URL of your site by either leaving a comment below or emailing me through the contacts page. The site must conform to the rules below.

The site you submit must be a live working web site designed and built entirely in iWeb, and must include as a minimum a homepage, an about me/us page, a contact page and a blog. All the other pages are entirely up to you.

The subject of the site is entirely up to you however, sites with an adult content or publishing illegal activities in any way will be removed.

You must own the copyright or have permission from the copyright holder for all material (text, images, video or audio etc) published on your site.

In addition the site must include visible evidence of at least one of the tutorials from this site such as a tag cloud or comments etc.

Only one site per person may be submitted.

Finally, and this is the crunch, you CANNOT use any of the default themes that come with iWeb to build your site (except Black or White obviously or any other providing it is suitable unrecognisable) or any of the themes that are available to buy elsewhere on the internet.

The best site will be the one that shows the greatest imagination whilst keeping in mind accesibility, cleanliness of design and usability. Your iWeb sites will be viewed in a variety of browsers ranging from IE6 through to FF3 as well as on several different screen resolutions.

All links placed in the comment section of the page will be ‘no follow’ so this won’t just be an exercise in getting links to your site.

The last day for entries is 12:00 hours, 1 March 2009 (I will use GMT +1 as the time zone) and judging will take place during the first week of March 2009. The winner will be notified by e-mail before the end of March 2009 and will have screenshots of his/her site published on this site as well as winning the brand new iPod shuffle and accessories.

Don’t forget to leave your e-mail address as well as your URL when you leave a comment.

The judge’s decision is final. There is no cash alternative prize. Any site not complying to the rules listed above will have their entry removed from the comments boxes below.

  2. I’m not sure if my site qualifies because I did some external editing to the HTML but it was created completely in iWeb.

  3. I had to install a new hard disk and I couldn’t find the backup which I think I’d backed up to documents so I had to redo the entire site. But at the moment I am not sure about the links and I have to teach myself again how to do them.

    Could you please tell me the link to your tutorial for the complicated addresses to encourage SEO because they all going to my pre-breakdown pages which have now been re-designed? When I have set it up again I think my site will qualify because I used blank templates.



  4. I’ll give it a shot!!
