Last year's iPhone Case Design Challenge was an exploration in portable art — a masterpiece in your pocket — and it was a huge success. Get your artwork in the hands and on the phones of thousands of people. Show us what you have been painting, sketching and collaging for a chance to win!

GRAND PRIZE: $500 + 5% royalties

RUNNERS UP: Guest judges will provide all runners up with a consultation and critique of their work, as well as tips for marketing and growing your business. Additionally, the UncommonGoods buying team will be happy to review your full portfolio in consideration for future work.

DEADLINE: May 31, 2013 at 11:59 PM ET

What does it take to be an Uncommon artist?
Your designs should tell a story, be intelligent, and show your creative individuality. We love to see new, original designs.

WHAT MEDIUMS CAN I USE?
Anything that will translate well to an iPhone case and people would want to carry around in their pocket or purse. We're big fans of color and experimentation, so don't be afraid to show us something new!

What we can do:
2D digital captures of your original watercolors, acrylics, pastels, colored pencils, collages, photography, digital art etc.

Got a Question?
Browse through the rules, or send us an email. And remember, you can submit up to five pieces of work with one entry, but do not enter more than once! If you have trouble with the form, make sure you've filled out your contact info-especially a valid email address! - before you upload your images.
