I like this one best so far:  http://catalyst.perl.org/

The submissions represent good work, and show potential.  I prefer the
original site because:
- Best use of color
- Use of fonts and layout keeps the eye from "getting lost" in the
first second or so of viewing
- Best navigation structure, especially over the leading contender
  which I think will leave many people lost with the nav crammed into
the upper corner where it
  might be easily overlooked for the bigger, more obvious content
links below.  Also, the nav
  is too small and vague, and could leave the initial visitor unsure
what content the site offers
