Back To School Art Competition: De-CGI something and win prizes from HP/AMD

41CR2wDeBCL._SL500_AA300_.jpgHP has offered three splendid "Back To School" machines to give away to Boing Boing readers:

First prize is an HP dv6 15.6" laptop with an AMD Phenom Quad Core Processor

Second prize is an HPE Elite 210f desktop computer with an AMD Phenom Quad Core processor.

Third prize is an HP 2509 monitor.

The competition theme is De-CGI. Take something that is characteristically computerized and render it with natural media. For example, the pixelated layout of an old-school video game represented as bottletops, or a mandelbrot fractal drawn with crayons. Be imaginative!

You retain the copyright in your entries. Only legal residents of the U.S. aged 18 and above and Canada can win the prizes. Read the contest rules. You've got until midnight next Monday to get your entries in!
