A few days ago we got this mail from the guys at Springleap.

(Yes it is a day for us putting up our overdue press releases :-/)

Springleap is having another design competition, and the first prize is R8,000.00

As per usual, the press release is after the “continue reading” clickety link…

We’ve got some REAL exciting news for your community from Springleap.com! Our latest competition is going at DOUBLE the usual cash prize. R8000 (US$1000)!!!

Springleap launched the concept THEMED DESIGN COMPETITIONS just over a year ago and whilst there have been some awesome designs from those competitions, the designers have made their desire to move back to open brief-competitions resoundingly clear.

Starting from today we are going back to open brief competitions – this means that designers can submit anything they like. From designs that didn’t win elsewhere, to ones sitting in folders gathering digital dust to creating jaw-dropping wonders.

…and to kick-start the process…

We are taking the cash from the Elements competition and adding it to the Some Like it Hot bounty to kick-start this new era with a R8000 (US$1000) cash prize plus the usual R2 royalty payment on sales of reprint runs.

The competition details :

Regular guidelines apply: NO OBSCENITY, NO HATE SPEECH …all that JAZZ.

Designers can submit up to 5 designs! The more designs they submit the greater chances they have of winning!

Dates to diarise:

Submissions for designs open: 23 September 2010
Submissions for designs close: 12 October 2010
Voting starts: 14 October 2010
