Working and submission
You can work on your skin and submit it until June 11th, 2009 23:59UTC, which gives around 3 weeks of development.
Submission must be done in private (to avoid cheating between contestants), by mailing jb.
A public vote will be held from June 12th, 2009 to June 14th, 2009 on our main website.
Everyone can vote and the VLC developers will have a right to veto (yeah, no Colbert Skin ;) )
