Design competition from Springleap and Vodacom and Vodacom have collaborated and launched an exciting new competition called ‘Power to You’.

Designers get the opportunity to design a t-shirt keeping the concept of ‘the power of connectivity’ in mind. The winning designer will receive R10 000 and get global exposure for their design.

Here is what the press release states:

This is a design contest that focuses on the visual expression of connecting through Vodacom and its power to connect people’s lives. Designers are encouraged to imagine living without chatting to their friends via SMS, Social Media or email – basically without all the ways in which Vodacom provides them with the power to connect via their mobiles.

Eran, co-founder of is quoted: “Springleap is thrilled to be working with Vodacom to launch yet another fantastic opportunity for designers to find empowerment and exposure. This competition will allow Vodacom to socially tap into thousands of creatives across South Africa – and internationally – to submit powerful designs around the set brief and enjoy an extremely engaging social networking and crowdsourcing experience. We are also launching Facebook Connect for easier registration and stronger social seeding”.

The competition is open until the 25th of March, 2011. The community will vote on all submissions and ultimately the winner will be announced after the month voting period.

So, if you’re looking for that opportunity to launch an exciting career in graphic design, I think this is the competition you want to enter.
