Technical (and Creative) Info On Both Contests:
Proposed new designs do not need to be fully functional pages, just
flat designs. WFMU's website is managed by a database-driven content
management system, with various dynamic elements, so the winning design
will have its functionality built into it by our database designer, Kenzo.
All pages should be designed so that they would function in various
screen resolutions and across various platforms. But people entering this
contest should not get bogged down over functionality or
compatibility issues, since this will be addressed when
Kenzo implements the winning designs on his system. We are looking mostly
