Design Contest - Be the Next GelaSkins Artist!


We had so much fun with our GelaSkins contest earlier this year, we're excited to say we've cooked up another awesome one for you guys. This time you get to create a design for their new iPhone 5 HardCase for a shot at becoming the next GelaSkins artist!

The GelaSkins brand was born from a passion for great design. That's why they work with the world's most creative minds, bringing stunning artwork to any device. The GelaSkins library is rounded out with thousands of works by established and up-and-coming independent artists, classics by the Masters, and patterns by renowned designers. Notable partnerships include National Geographic, Tim Burton and Norman Rockwell. Expressing individual style is easy with thousands of designs to choose from and simple tools to help create a unique look for any device. Personalize phones, tablets, laptops, e-readers and more!

The HardCase by GelaSkins for iPhone 5 is a tough, polycarbonate, snap-on case. It's available in a wide array of great designs by artists from around the world. You can even be the artist and design your own – import family photos, company logos, or patterns you've created at COLOURlovers.com.

Here are all of the important details about the contest:

How to Enter

COLOURlovers can enter this contest by creating and coloring a pattern for the iPhone 5 HardCase template that GelaSkins has provided. To submit your designs, just visit the contest page and create your entry, easy peasy!

A lot of amazing entries!

Is there a way to find all of my own entries? I should have kept tracked of them.

Look under your patterns on your profile. Click the number, not the image showing your last pattern. That will bring up a sub-page on your profile that shows your patterns. =) Not sure about the actual contest page. Your entries have a contest page and a pattern page. The contest also takes your pattern and repeats it, by the way. (I guess so they can count new likes for the contest and not get old likes mixed in?) Don't delete the extra patterns you see. The latest version of a pattern will be the contest entry.

Of course! They'd have the gelaskins 5 tag! Glad someone thought of it... Heh! =) Er, but that still doesn't get them the contest entry page, with the code to post your design displayed on a case... =/

Go to any of your patterns and the url will contain the 7 digit number for that pattern....
http://www.colourlovers.com/pattern/3104830/PAISLEY!!! Copy the 7 digit number.

Go to any of the entry pages and replace the 7 digits with your pattern's number

And hit Enter.

It should go to your entry's page :)

That is odd. The patterns have more than 40 loves, but no faves and the templates have at most 2 loves. Seems fishy.

Yup. Just look at the views!
It sometimes happens with palettes. Palettes with thousands of loves and at #1 most loved rank, out of nowhere. They only last one or two days, though. CL team deletes them.

Okay, no more entries from me until the iPhone 6 comes out...promise!

It's really tempting to throw more and more stuff into this contest, isn't it? I'm sitting on myself.
But I would so love to make a case for the ipad mini ^_^ Just sayin'

As long as there isn't a limit on entries, the temptation will always exist. I actually bought a Gelaskin for a MacBook last year...that's great because of the much larger format. The artwork wasn't from a modern day Colourlover however. It was by some guy named Vincent van Gogh.

I'm reining myself in. I had 97 entries in the last Gelaskins Contest, and I really think it worked against me, I diluted votes against my better entries. This time I want to concentrate the votes on only a few. I don't plan to enter more than 18, maybe 20 tops... I've already got 16.

I couldn't resist a couple more!

Okay, I'm done. No more! AAAAAAaaaaaAAaaaa-aaa!

Thanks for the instructions, huege. I wanted to show my daughter what the designs might look like on the hard case.

huege

Better yet...you can upload your own designs to the Gelaskins website and actually create a real Gelaskin :)

Yes that is against rules, I got please vote me message too and voted one of these, I did against rules too, fishing votes is so wrong.

I wish we could re-size, align, and move the pattern on the case!
So many good designs lose their power or don't work because you can't do these things!

But still,
I love this competition! It is so addictive and fun! And everyone here is so talented.

I wish we could resize the design, too! Since vector designs are scalable, we should be able to scale as they do in Themeleon... I wish. One of my designs wasn't centered, so I finally went back to the template, selected everything, and moved it all pixil by pixil to the new center.... it took 40 minutes.... sigh. I was afraid Seamless would crash minute by minute, but thankfully not this time ^_^
