For those of you who haven’t already heard, I recently won a competition held by Dell to design a laptop cover. They had 4000 entries and the top 25 most voted entries were judged by a panel of judges and mine was chosen as the winning entry. I won a Design Studio 15 laptop with my own winning design on the cover as well as a $5000 cash prize. I will be the only person in Australia with a custom made Dell laptop cover! Very cool!
Yesterday I flew to Sydney for the Dell Make It Yours Design Studio competition winner announcement event. It was a whirlwind trip from Queensland but lots of fun! It was wonderful to meet the Dell team and press at the event and I managed to have lots of photos taken! EEEK! I asked the photographer to make me beautiful so fingers crossed he complies! LOL
They held a competition for the journalists to design a laptop cover and the winning entry would win a brand new Studio 15 laptop. Unfortunately I did not get to see how that went as I had a plane to catch back to Queensland.
The Good Gear guide posted an article on their website about the top 25 entries and a bit of a spiel about my entry and the rest of the top 25.
