The Realme brand is known not only for its affordable handsets but also for its massive engagement with fans and users around the world. We have just received a press release from the company, announcing the launch of the second global wallpaper design contest.
Users, designers and design students from all over the world will be able to compete and create wallpapers for the Realme 8 5G smartphone, and the best ones will grab cash rewards of up to $10,000, as well as internships at the Realme offices.
The global contest has already opened, and we’ve provided a link in the Source below. It is ending on June 12, 2021, and Realme users from all over the globe can cast their votes for the best design. The top 200 choices will then be reviewed by a panel of designers and Realme executives, including Naoto Fukusawa, Realme’s Product Design Director, the Korean graphic designer Grafflex, Madhav Sheth, CEO at Realme, and others.
The judges will be reviewing the applications and whether they are based on the creativity and storytelling around the core theme – Realme’s slogan “Dare to leap”. There will be 53 winners, with their work announced on July 12, 2021.
This is the second time Realme is doing such a contest. The first one attracted over 7,500 wallpaper designs by over 5,500 participants from China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Spain, the press release reads. The voting process also gathered a buzz, with over 138,000 Realme users casting their vote.
Chase Xu, Realme CMO, has said Realme is a “young brand with a strong focus on trendsetting designs” and the contest encourages people to “explore their visual environment and unleash their artistic potential.”
