WacomThe announcement of Photoshop CS by Adobe means that designers and photographers will soon have even more tools with which to create. To celebrate this Wacom Technology has started two new contests. Go Platinum is a contest for designers and Go Pro is a contest for photographers. Both contests are free to enter and end January 31, 2004. A panel of judges that includes a number of best-selling authors of design books will select the winner of the Go Platinum design contest. The creative brief for the contest is to design CD cover-art for the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). The winning artwork will be used for the cover of the CD that NAPP will be distributing at PhotoshopWorld West 2004 in San Francisco.
The design needs to feature the NAPP house band, Big Electric Cat. Photographs of the band and a copy of the band logo are provided for free download from Wacom's web site. Designs will be reviewed in batches as they are submitted, and the Top Ten designs at any given time will be posted on the web. Only one design per contestant will be considered in the final round of judging; however, contestants may submit a new design to take the place of one they previously submitted. The winner of the Go Platinum contest will receive a 40GB Apple iPod and $1000 U.S. to either pocket or use to get to San Francisco to be honored on stage at the opening event for PhotoshopWorld 2004. By entering the contest, contestants give NAPP the right to use their winning artwork for the CD and the right to showcase their design in Photoshop User magazine.

"The Go Platinum contest is a great opportunity for designers to show their talent on an international stage," said Deke McClelland, author of the best-selling Photoshop Bible series. "Showing the changing group of Top Ten designs during the contest should really make the competition fierce and generate some top-quality work. It's going to be exciting."

Go Pro is a refreshingly uncomplicated photo contest. A panel of professional photographers will simply select the photo that they feel is the most compelling. Contestants can submit a photo of anything that's suitable for the enjoyment of all ages and to which they hold all rights. As photos come in, the judges will review them and many of the good ones will then be posted in a gallery for everyone to enjoy. Only one photo per contestant will be considered in the final round of judging; however, contestants may submit a new photo to take the place of one they previously submitted. The winner of the Go Pro contest will receive a 40GB Apple iPod and $1000 U.S. as payment for the commercial rights to the winning photo. The winning photo will be included in the Photospin professional stock photo collection.

"These contests are meant to be serious fun for people with talent," said Joe Deal, Wacom's president. These contests are about honoring the very best designer and the very best photographer from those who participate."
