Sony and Microsoft today announced a competition that challenges consumers to create designs for the lids of a new line of VAIO Graphic Splash notebooks.
Starting today through Aug. 10, 2008, budding designers can submit their proposed designs online at www.sony.com/mygraphicsplash along with a photo of themselves and a brief message revealing their "style."
A celebrity panel of judges, including television star and fashion icon Lauren Conrad and visual artist and Graphic Splash notebook designer Maya Hayuk, will select 10 finalists from the submissions.
The finalist's one-of-a-kind PCs will be revealed at PROJECT Las Vegas- a high-end fashion event taking place at the end of August. Finalists will receive a VAIO notebook emblazoned with their own art.
The final 10 lid designs will also be posted online where fashion-enthusiasts are urged to log on and vote for their favorite. The three designs receiving the most votes will be deemed the winners.
Winners will receive an all-expense-paid trip to New York, this September, where they will unveil their artwork and meet the panel of celebrity judges. Winning entries will be made into limited-edition VAIO notebooks.
The new VAIO My Graphic Splash notebook line will be available for sale online at www.sony.com/pr/mygraphicsplash starting later this fall for a limited time. For terms and conditions of the contest go to www.sony.com/mygraphicsplash
