Calling all artists!

On the heels of Lexmark's updated suite of photo offerings we’re excited to announce a printer design contest with Lexmark and Photobucket!

We’re calling all students, artists, schools, businesses and households to turn their printer into a work of art. Get started by using an old or new printer and create a fun and funky design. Tropical landscapes, cartoon characters and castles are all fair game. Here’s a few examples of what we’re thinking:

To participate, submit a photo of your newly designed printer to this Photobucket group album. Don’t have a Photobucket account? Sign-up is quick, free and easy at http://register.photobucket.com/.

The contest is open to aspiring artists in the U.S., the UK, Canada, France, Germany, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil and Australia. Lexmark and Photobucket will also upload contest photos to our respective Facebook pages, http://www.facebook.com/LexmarkNews and http://www.facebook.com/photobucket,and will allow users to vote on their favorite images by tagging themselves. Submissions will be open from October 6 to November 12. Five lucky winners will be announced after November 12, and each will receive a new touch screen all-in-one inkjet printer from Lexmark (click here for official rules).

As Lexmark recently blogged about, Photobucket SmartSolutions include Scan to Photobucket and Photobucket View and Print. With these offerings, users can access their Photobucket profile, scan through existing photos and print images, all through Lexmark’s Web-connected touch screen.

So, feeling inspired? Grab your old printer, some art supplies and start designing. We’re looking forward to seeing your printer creations!
