of art for the #TileArt app gallery.Interested? For the first round, simply use the provided template to show us how your best artwork could look on a Lumia phone. The artwork must be original, and can be pre-existing or created specifically for this opportunity. However, it must be a theme, or design, that you could expand on, for Round 2.
10 finalists will advance to Round 2 and be asked to create a set of complementary images, to accompany their artwork from Round 1. All finalists will be given a Lumia 930 (or Icon) to upload their images to, via the #TileArt app,
so that we can see their designs in situ. At the end of Round 2, 4 artists will be selected to receive $1,500
a Surface Pro 3, and have their
winning portfolio featured in the #TileArt app gallery, making it easy for Lumia owners
to pimp their phones using your amazing artwork.
