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 protected] 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 🙂
