UPDATE: This contest is closed. Please view the end of the article to see who won!
We’re back for week 3 of Editor’s Choice powered by NVIDIA Tegra, this time with a design-inspired prize pack curated by our resident illustrator extraordinaire, Angie. Up for grabs this week is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, a Logitech Tablet Keyboard, a Logitech Tablet Mouse, an Alupen Touch Stylus and a Built neoprene messenger bag to haul it all around in.
Packing so many handy tools in a compact pack is perfect for the modern designer. Just ask Angie. She doesn’t want to give this prize pack away. And I don’t blame her. The Logitech Tablet Keyboard is one of my favorite accessories I’ve played with in a long time. Add in the mouse and stylus, and you’ve got quite the mobile art workstation.
How to win
In keeping with our theme of creative contests, this week we’re doing a t-shirt concept contest. To enter to win, all you’ve gotta do is submit an idea for a bitchin’ Android tee. You can draw it yourself, you can craft a terribly janky Photoshop, you can scrawl it out in MSpaint, hell, you can even just leave us a written description. Even if you don’t have an artistic bone in your body, take your best shot and share it as a comment on this post.
Here’s the best part: our favorite concept (as selected by the Android and Me staff) will be made into an actual tee. The winning concept is going to be passed to super-illustrator-turned-zombie Ray Frenden for the official And Me treatment. Then, at some point in the near future, we’ll debut it in a line of actual tees (which the winner will get for free, of course).
The Small Print
Since this contest deals with submitting ideas and/or art, we thought we’d toss in a short disclaimer to say that all submissions remain the property of the original artist. We aren’t here to permanently gobble up your creativity, we’re just looking for a winning concept by an artist who will give us one-time rights to use the concept on a t-shirt in exchange for the amazing prize pack. Deal? Good.
Also, since this isn’t carrier specific-hardware, this contest is open to all entrants, international or not. As long as you’ve got a clever idea, you’ve got a shot at this Tab.
Good luck and happy conceptualizing!
We’ll leave entries open through the weekend, closing submissions on Sunday night at 11:59 PM CST. We’ll try to pick a winner and make the announcement as soon after the deadline as possible.

UPDATE: We have our winner! Congratulations to John and his idea to create a design out of a sea of Androids. He submitted the below image to give us an idea of the composition:
It was very hard to choose one out of all the of the many submissions we received, but we are all happy with the idea of a shirt that will highlight the idea of an Android community. Check out the gallery below to see the submissions that made it farthest in the judging process (Submitted by BRAAAIN, Jean M, Patricia Simoes, inhuman5000, Edward Pei, Michael C., Juan Raza, mimogear, Sean M, Keith Pinson, Yellow Ducati, Sylvain, and erikiksaz (in no particular order). Two others, AnthonyA and cristhian banales were also final contenders, but did not submit a mockup):
We’re very excited to see how this is going to turn out after the talented Mr. Ray Frenden gets his hands on it. Keep a lookout on the site for updates on when this will be available for purchase. Please keep in mind that it will require quite a bit of time to finalize a design, and get everything taken care of with the printer, so it could be a few months. Thanks so much for everyone who participated! It was a lot of fun looking through your ideas.
