Design Contest - Be the next Graft Concepts Artist

We are so excited to announce a new contest for the COLOURlovers community today! We've teamed up with  Graft Concepts an innovator and leader in the iPhone accessory industry. You will have the opportunity to design and color a pattern template for the Graft Concepts Leverage iPhone hard case!

What makes this contest stand apart is the unique design and customizability of the Graft Concepts Leverage case (available for the iPhone 4/4s and iPhone 5). Unlike other cases on the market, this case features interchangeable backplates, enabling a variety of options with just one case. They offer backplates with wood veneers, utility backplates that hold your credit cards, and now, with the help of COLOURlovers, there will be backplates with beautiful patterns and color palettes.

This unconventional case possesses a quick release latch and lever system -- inspired by the clasps of high end watches -- enabling the frame to securely grasp onto backplates without the need for adhesives.  This makes it easier than ever to swap out backplates on a whim.  The latch provides a stylish metal accent, pulling design elements reminiscent of the iPhone itself.  It also enables the case to be taken on and off easily...just a quick flip and snap and the frame is locked securely in place!

This unconventional iPhone case is available in a variety of colors and either a matte or high polished chrome finish on the hand polished latch and lever and will surely be noticed on your phone.

Here is some important information about the contest:

Wow! what a brilliant case design!

For whatever reason, the love button on the entry view isn't working. It does work if the pattern is open separately, with the link under the phone image.

Oops. This is a feature, not a bug. ...A more deliberate perusal of the post reveals:

^ Exactly what I came here to ask about! I thought perhaps it was my crappy browser acting up again.
Just tried and doesn't work either way. Glad you had the issue too. Means I didn't break it, hehe

Gah! and no more contest flipping for me until it really starts. I'm going to forget this thread and go back to Animal Crossing.

Thanks for fixing the buttons
My dyslexic brain can't handle keeping my cut and paste accurate, so you probably have ones here you don't love. But since loving these is like a vote in the iPhone case general election, I wanted to thank you for your love!

Oh, so, thanks.
