Roland’s first international Creative Awards competition has attracted hundreds of entries and as a result deadline for entries has been extended. Roland customers worldwide now have until 29th January 2012 to showcase their best work and compete for prizes including a trip for two people to Japan, an Apple iPad2 and a new Roland device of their choice. The deadline to enter the Roland Creative Awards has been extended in response to the popularity of the competition, which has received over 600 entries since its launch on 21st September 2011.
“We have received such a high calibre of entries so far, from imaginative boat wraps to stunning exhibition stands, beautiful jewellery, wacky car wraps and even model helicopters”, said Gillian Montanaro, Head of Marketing at Roland DG (UK). “We’re really seeing inspiring creativity and innovation from Roland users, and invite everyone to take a look at the Roland Creative Awards website and vote for their favourites.”
The Roland Creative Awards is open to users of Roland equipment across the globe at www.rolandcreativeawards.com. Entries will be judged based on Creativity, Innovation and Execution in each of the 14 regions representing 123 countries. More than 75 prizes are being awarded worldwide, including:
- Monthly People’s Choice Awards – This award recognises one top entry per region each month, as voted by site visitors. Four winners will each receive a Canon Powershot SX230HS digital camera
- Honourable Mention Awards – Two Honourable Mentions will be named in the UK, each winning an Apple iPad2
- Regional Winner – Regional winners will receive a trip for two people to Japan to celebrate 30 years with Roland DG and compete for the Worldwide Grand Prize in April 2012
