We want to thank each of our CMS Themes Challenge participants from earlier this year. Thank you to all those who participated; we had some great submissions! Now that the new Website Themes & Templates Marketplace is live, we're excited to share the winning themes' public listings so you can recommend, share, and engage with the designs with customers and clients.
We asked the participants: why did you choose to build for the HubSpot ecosystem?
Below, we highlight some of the winning themes, in no particular order, and the participants' thoughts on why they're excited to be a part of the HubSpot ecosystem and developer community.
