Announcing our first ever DXRacer Design-A-Chair contest!

August 1, 2018 17 By DXRacer

As mentioned by the title, welcome to our first ever Design-A-Chair contest! We know we have some talented members of the community that are incredibly skilled at designing, and we can’t wait to see what you create!

When planning this quarter, we really wanted to focus on our community. Plus, you get a look behind the curtain on how our chairs are made. Win/win for everyone!

Prizes

What would a contest be without some fabulous prizes? After careful consideration, these prizes were hand selected by our marketing team. Each of our three winners will receive:
  • Naming rights on their chair (I.E. The Mitch Alpiner edition)
  • One free chair of their design
And a choice of:
  • Reimbursement for travel and housing accommodations to the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, California.

OR

  • A Microsoft Surface Pro

OR

  • Apple iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

OR

  • Wacom Cintiq 13HD

Submissions

Submit your designs directly by using the embedded form below in the following format:

  • Physical drawings: Submit photos or scans in .jpg or .png format
  • Digital images: Submit photos in .ai, .jpg, .png, or .pdf format
  • File size limit: 2MB or less

Do not put your watermark on your entry. The only watermark that should be on your entry is the “DXRacer Design-A-Chair Contest” in the lower left corner.

Yes, you can submit multiple designs. However, you can only win once. 

Limitations

The DXRacer Design-A-Chair Contest is open to legal residents of the United States, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, who are at least 18 years of age.
