From WinCustomize Wiki
The "Skinning Community" as a whole is much larger than just WinCustomize. While WC is one of the largest sites in the community, it is but one out of dozens of sites serving digital artists and UI tweakers all over the Internet. It's also important to note that these other community sites, for the most part, do not act in competition with one another. Most prominent skinners can be found at many of these sites, spreading their work and talent far and wide.
At WinCustomize, we try and work with other community sites as often as possible to promote skinning as a whole, to expand the market and the hobby. The GUI Championships is a prime example of a large effort that brings multiple sites in the community together.
