    Design contest entry question

    Asked by Joey Lane  on November 20, 2014 at 12:58 PM


    I would like to participate in the form design competition and had a couple of questions. Since the form will also be judged on functionality, I assume that it must be a working form correct? If so, what address should be used as the recipient once the form is submitted?

    I understand that we must use the jotForms designer tool to design the form (super cool tool btw), but what language is required for form delivery? I am not much of a programmer, is there any tools or templates you would recommend for the actual functionality of the form?

    The form functionality is actually only a small part of the contest.  We would actually prefer great looking forms over crazy functionality.  There is no email address that is needed to be included in your forms notifications, in fact, it is likely we wont even check that aspect.  Though no programming knowledge is needed to create a form with JotForm, here are some templates to get your started:


    Here is a basic guide on creating a form as well:


    Thank you for the kind words and we look forward to seeing your submission!

    can we enter forms that have heavily injected css and some extra scripts?... Or do they specifically have to be designed with the JotForm 'Form Designer'?

    You can enter whatever you would like.  Though we would prefer your forms be created in JotForm, it is within the boundaries of our rules to submit even a non-JotForm form.  Heavily CSS injected forms are actually encouraged, though scripts are not allowed within our forms.  Here is awards page for rules and a full contest descriptions:
