Win a laser etched iPad contest REMINDER – Contest sponsored by EPILOG laser with Gizmodo & Adafruit
Ok folks, this is it! You have just a couple more days to win an iPad etched by us (Adafruit Industries) – we are doing a contest with Gizmodo and Epilog laser. You have two options to try and win: you can either design the flat-out coolest and most aesthetically pleasing image possible. Or, you can design something that is so embarrassing that you’d be shamed into never taking the iPad out of the house. The best of each extreme will make it onto an iPad and go to the designers. Send your entries in to email@example.com with “iPad Design Entry” in the subject line. Mention in the body of the email whether or not it’s a beautiful design or an embarrassing one. Get your entries in by midnight PST April 3. Oh, and the contest is only open to U.S. residents over the age of 18.
We are a judge, you folks know what we like – good luck, we hope you make something very cool and win 🙂
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
