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:

We probably shouldn't assume there is active deception taking place. There's a chance it's just be a glitch working in that CLer's favour. I emailed CL today to ask them to look into it, but who knows when they'll get around to that. Maybe if a couple other concerned people also sent an email they might get to it sooner....I used the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

We probably told them they needed more views here in the comments, so they adjusted their voting bot to do that.
(There are A LOT more views *now*, there weren't before and IT LOOKS FISHY!)


I'm just going to shut up then, and let management sort it out. Just generally in favor of juried entries (qualifying round) and external judges, except for some kind of people's choice award.


I said i wouldn't do anymore but i couldn't help myself! Really like the template, reminds me of Liberty fabric prints! This is the last one now, 5 in total, that's a nice number to stop at! Hahaha! ❤❤❤❤❤
