Fossil Launches Global Tin Design Contest

See also

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Fossil! To celebrate, Fossil is hosting a tin design contest.

From the very beginning Fossil has housed its watches in whimsical tins and now is your chance to create a winning design of your own!

The theme for the Tin Design Contest is 30 Years on the Open Road—think vintage automobiles, roadside diners, the sights of Route 66, or American travel from the 1950s and 1960s.

The contest is open now through February 28, 2014. Designers can visit to upload your original artwork and create an iconic watch tin. Submissions will be judged on originality, creativity and representation of Fossil’s modern-vintage style.

The Top 30 tin designs will be selected based on these judging criteria by a Fossil judging panel and will be posted in an online gallery for public voting. The Top 30 designs will also be produced into actual tins to be displayed at select Fossil stores and events!

Five finalists will be chosen:

One (1) Grand Prize winner will receive $5,000

Two (2) First Prize winners will receive $2,500 each

Two (2) Second Prize winners will receive $1,000 each
