NLU Products, maker of TatSkinz protective body art for electronic devices, will hold its first-ever iPod cover design contest through November, providing artists and technology aficionados the opportunity to turn their personal artwork into the next TatSkinz. I (Eliane) am one of the judges for this competition. One winning creative genius will see his or her “tat” incorporated into the TatSkinz line-up and win either a $1000 scholarship or 13” MacBook. In addition to popular vote from online visitors to the site, several prominent technology and design reviewers will serve as guest judges for the contest, ultimately deciding on the winning design. Contest participants should submit designs at TatSkinz.com/contest beginning October 1; submissions will be accepted through the entire month of November.
You can vote for your favorite design on this page: http://www.tatskinz.com/content/customercare/page-vote.htm
