Today Corel Corporation launches a vinyl design contest entitled “That’s A Wrap!” to give participants the chance to win fantastic prizes worth over £2,000 (GBP).
To enter the contest participants need to use an existing version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 or download a free 30-day trial version of the software available at http://www.corel.com or alternatively use the 30–day trial version available with Computer Arts magazine, issue 181 on sale the 21st of October.
Participants are invited to get creative and create a vinyl design that is reflective of themselves and their “world”. Corel has selected three categories for participants to enter:
Corel will provide a First, Second and Third Prize for each category
- Partial Wrapping: Vehicle wrapping is fast becoming a huge styling phenomenon, so why not create your very own eye-catching design. Entrants are invited to create a partial vehicle wrap by making use of one of 2,000 vehicle templates available in CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X5, to find one that fits their vehicle. Add vector graphics or clipart to your design to make your vehicle stand out;
- Wall Wrap: Use any of the creative vector illustration tools to create a vinyl wrap design for a wall in your home or office. This could be a scene of your favourite beach, a secret garden or anything which reflects yourself and your world;
- Monument Wrap: Design a creative wrap for one of your favourite monuments or buildings. This could be ivy growing on the Big Ben in London or a car race on the BrooklynBridge. Your imagination is your only boundary!
The First Prize for the Partial Wrapping category is a vinyl wrap of the design created using the CorelDRAW vehicle templates; for the Wall Wrap the first prize is a professional print of the wall wrap and for the Monument Wrap, the first prize is a gift voucher of five hundred pounds (£500) to spend on Lastminute.com to put towards a trip to the city where the chosen monument is located.
The Second Prize for all categories is one year subscription to the English edition of Computer Arts magazine and a goodie bag of Corel products worth over £830 and includes CorelDRAW Graphics Premium Suite X5, Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3 Ultimate and Corel® VideoStudio Pro X3. Third Prize for all categories is a goodie bag of Corel products.
