A WordPress enthusiast knows how challenging it can be to find the best theme, plugin, service, and tutorial.
As such, the web is now full of sponsored product ratings and blog posts about the best products, which are probably coming from affiliate programs or clients and will not be objectively truthful about the actual products' functionality.
Sadly, these are still the only ways for an aspiring WordPress brand to get noticed.
We at TemplateMonster know that this is not fair, which explains why we're launching a new competition for WordPress products: the Monster's Award.
Throughout this contest, we want you to be the one to determine which WordPress products deserve to be at the top of the list, based on your own direct experience.
Whether it's a theme, plugin, hosting service, or any other admitted WordPress product, we would like to see you as part of this contest, whether as a voter or participant.
Starting from November the 4th, 2021, and ending on December the 1st of this year, you'll have the opportunity to vote or nominate your favorite WordPress product!
