▲Special link for designers from last year▲
If you have participated in this contest in previous year, you can also sign up in [Application for the 2nd Flyme Theme Contest] with your email (the same one you used to participate last year) to recommend other designers*. If any one of your recommended designers wins, you will receive the same prize as he/she does*!
*1 old designer can only recommend 3 NEW designers at most (which means the recommended designers cannot be old designers from the previous year); if you recommend more than 3 designers, we will not count the recommendations after the third one.
*If a new designer is being recommended by more than 1 people, his/her referrer will be decided based on the time of the application, the FIRST ONE who submit the application with to recommend he/her will be count as his/her referrer.
*If more than 1 winner generated from an old designer's recommendations, the old designer will only receive 1 prize (the same as the highest winner in his recommendation)
1. One designer can submit several themes, however, if his/her works win more than 1 prize in the first, second or third prizes, he/she will only get the highest prize he/she wins.
2. Most Popular Award and Designer Award are 2 independent awards so winner of first, second or third prize can have these 2 awards too. However, if these 2 awards are given to the same person, he/she will only receive one MEIZU Flow Earphones.
3. If a designer wins a prize, and his recommendation also wins, he will only get the higher prize of the 2 prizes, however, we will send a MEIZU Flow earphones along. For example: if a designer Mr.A wins an M6 Note, and his recommended friend Miss B wins PRO 7 Plus, he will receive a PRO 7 Plus (same as Miss B) + a Flow earphones (without M6 Note).

What we have to reply this thread?
I mean creator will send theme to ID for the rank and they and other users have to reply casually?
By the way, great contest and no chance of spamming or cheating
Creative and skilled user will win
Best of luck to all
How can we download last year's themes that were created for Chinese contest? I mean, all of them. Because i found no place to get them all.
It could be more easy to publish the theme creator application in English.
hope i can make my creativity work in this one.

There is 20$ prize for 10%, 30, 50, 70, 90% reply
And this is not a thread like we have to reply in previous contests
Means, it is not clear what to reply
So, I asked that, we have to reply to this thread for those 10- 90% reply casually?
Because we will send our theme to given email. And what I can reply is "done and theme sent"
So a designer can win rank prize and % reply 20$ both?
And users not participating in theme design can reply this thread casually (example - nice contest) to win 20$?
Wherw we have to design the theme
