Original note from post:
Self-help is the best help, the sooner you imbibe this rule in your life, the faster you will find success. I’m not trying to be preachy here, but this is a fact that most biggies in the industry live by.
If you want to own the best possible mobile phone in this world, my dear friend you’re gonna have to design it yourself, because you know what’s best for you. We live for the future and this is the theme for LG’s Design the Future Competition as well. Partnering with crowdSPRING and Autodesk®, LG is accepting applications from eligible candidates who have the power of transforming their creative thoughts and imaginations effectively to design. It’s a chance to do something for yourself that others can benefit from as well.
To help in this adventure, participating designers will get a free 15-day trial pack of the Autodesk SketchBook Pro software to showcase their talent. Of course, the rewards are plenty! The First Place takes home $20,000 Cash Award; the Second Place: $10,000 Cash Award; Third Place: $5,000 Cash Award; 40 Honorable Mentions: $1,000 Cash Award + 1 LG U.S. Phone (A.R.V. of $300).
Regulations require participants to be a U.S. resident, 18-years and above, and the entries need to be submitted before June 7, 2009 @ 11:59 p.m. (midnight) PST. Owning an LG phone or purchasing a new one won’t win you any favors, so designers don’t bother, just let your creative juices flow….
