@Mike:- Yes. Even if you don’t win, your theme will be displayed. Besides, if your theme is good and if you want it to be distributed as a free theme, we can do that as well.

Are all of the themes going to be displayed even if they don’t win? I would like to submit a theme but if it doesn’t win, would still like to be recognized for my efforts.
