What am I Looking At?

This is the content site for the DotNetNuke Zen Garden Design Challenge.

The concept borrows from the original CSS Zen Garden where by the same content is redesigned multiple ways via Cascading Style Sheets. This contest builds on the idea to include JavaScript enhancements and applies the design to an entire DotNetNuke portal.

To get a sense of how it will work, view the exposed page structure design versus the default design.

Rules and Regulations


  • The design submission must be completely contained in the structure outlined. NO off site files are allowed. This includes image, CSS and JS files. If you need a script or library, it must be included in the package.
  • Images must be clean and safe for general viewing.
  • Avoid any promotional images for third party products and services unless integral to the design concept.
