I can see the logic there, but it runs a huge risk of becoming a gargantuan
sprawling thing that never ends.

If the last redesign (compared to the one before) taught us anything, it was
'keep it small and simple'.

So far, this is a simple 'produce us some templates we can drop right into weo'
thing. Once we decide who's won (which tbh, would be way faster if we just
let desdev pick), it's done in a day.

The moment we start over-complicating it with prizes, and extra things to do
in advance, it gets longer, and as an organisation, we get bored *really*

Tell you what, let's take the 'adhere to branding' rule out - if ppl 
infer it, then great. If not, let's see what comes back.
