Etsy Handmade Code Contest Winners
Wow! Judging took a lot longer, and was a lot harder than we expected. In all, there were 34 eligible entries. We were especially happy to have 8 mobile entries, spanning the gamut from iPhone/iPad to Android, Blackberry, and Windows mobile. This is great news for everyone who’s been wanting to browse Etsy on their mobile phones.
We also recently launched our Etsy App Gallery. This will become a comprehensive list of all the Etsy Apps that exist out there in the wild. So far we have over 30 apps listed, including the contest winners, and developers are listing new apps every day. We’ve also created the Etsy Apps Team where developers can get in touch with Etsy community members, get feedback on their apps, and talk about what apps the community wants to see. Check it out!
And without further ado… here are the winners:
These apps won the Grand Prize of $5,000 each:
|Buyer Tools||Etsy Vintage Timeline||“Very simple product idea with great execution. Delightful to use.”|
|Seller Tools||Etsy On Sale||“Awesome idea and very popular with the community.”|
|Mobile App||Etsy Lovers||“Impressive use of various Etsy APIs.”|
These apps won $500 each. We had so many great Seller Tools entries, we had to choose three!
|Buyer Tools||Favoritizer||“Great feature around one of the key activities on Etsy.”|
|Seller Tools||Etsy Catalog||“Big scope…very cool idea.”|
|Seller Tools||Etsy Text||“Nice support for a wide variety of mobile devices.”|
|“Powerful ideas for order fulfillment optimization.”|
|Mobile App||Craftsy||“Great design.”|
Winners were selected by our final round judges: Chad Dickerson, CTO of Etsy, Jared Tarbell, co-founder of Etsy, and Tarikh Korula, founder of Uncommon Projects.
