The top 20 silliest sites will be highlighted on the Gatsby Blog. Sign up to get all the details including how to get started building that silly site!

Swag, you say?

Everyone who submits a site to the Silly Site Challenge will get a special limited edition Gatsby sticker. What’s so special about a sticker? Well, this is no ordinary sticker. Not just a glitter sticker, not just a holographic sticker… It’s BOTH a glitter AND holographic sticker! What?!

Besides this scintillating sticker, builders of the top 20 silliest sites also earn a limited edition Silly Site Mug. But every builder of every site in the Gatsby Silly Site Challenge will learn the latest in web technology while having fun learning something new.
