Wacom Industrial Design Contest

The Wacom Kids and Pets Photography contest was recently concluded and now, a new contest is being held at Wacom Asia. Called the Wacom Indsutrial Design Contest, the objective is to design either an industrial contraption like (e.g. vehicle) or a fashion design concept. Just like the previous contest, the winners will receive their very own Wacom Intuos Tablet.

Personal Note: As of the moment, only few have submitted their entries. Btw, if you look at the previous winning contest entries of Wacom-Asia, you will see Wacom's standards are quite high. But even if you are not that good in digital art, joining and comparing your work against the other entries might motivate you to hone your artistic skills more. Also, don't be discouraged that this is open to Asia-Pacific countries. There were noteworthy Filipino winners in Wacom's contests in the past.
