Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life. If you love Chess.com and web design, then we have the perfect opportunity for you. We're happy to announce the Chess.com Redesign Contest, your chance to win up to $10,000 and maybe even land a full-time job with us!

Your challenge is to present a redesign of Chess.com that makes it even better-looking and easier to use for our millions of users. The contest will run until April 30 and will reward the three best designs, as well as great submissions overall.

We will pick the best submissions and distribute the following prizes:

  • First: $10,000
  • Second: $2,500
  • Third: $1,000

If we think your work is absolutely astonishing, we will make you an offer to join our passionate team full-time. And even if you end up not winning the cash prizes, we'll gift you a diamond membership if you put in a lot of effort and send us an excellent design.

How To Participate

[PARTICIPATION IS NOW CLOSED.] If you're interested in shaping Chess.com's new look and feel for 2021, fill out the form below. Please read the form very carefully for instructions on what you need to do and what we expect from your design.

Results

After reviewing all submissions, we have awarded the following cash prizes, along with about 50 years worth of Diamond memberships! Below we have just used first names to protect identity. Additionally, we are only showing one screenshot, but their contributions included much more than just a design, and included either text or video insights. So, don't just based just on design - we didn't - but on the overall thought process, insights, and UX ideas.

First Place - $10,000  - Sabrina (Runs a UX group in the UK)

Second Place - $2,500 - Jeremy (a Designer in the USA)

Third Place - $1,000 - Thomas (A Product Designer / Head of Design in Ireland)
