"In my webinar at the start of the year, I received fantastic feedback from the Web Designer and Developer (WDD) community about the way the industry is currently positioned and decided that this was going to be ResellerClub's primary goal this year - enabling WDDs,” explained ResellerClub’s General Manager and Business Head, Shridhar Luthria. “SiteWars is a platform that we hope will encourage healthy competition and incentivize the industry to come up with even better UX styles than ever before. For this contest, we've teamed up with Donuts who are a perfect fit as they have a wide portfolio of domain extensions that can cater to most industries that a WDD would service. The WDD portal we've built is for the web design and development community to upskill, compete, collaborate and network."Do you know of any other companies running competitions?
