The Engadget mascot contest: win a Wii!
Let's face it, Engadget needs a mascot that's not one of our dear, sweet readers all dolled up like some random device on Halloween. That's where you and your artistic talents come in: we want you to make us an Engadget mascot to appear on the site, on future t-shirts, and anywhere else you think an Engadget mascot might show up (think: Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -- just kidding). Just for fun we made Paul draw up that little guy to the right, Sonny the Explody Battery: "Stay safe, boys and girls!"

For your efforts we'll repay you with a brand new Nintendo Wii, provided by the WMExperts store.

Here are the rules (and some suggestions on how to win our favor):
  • You may only enter this specific contest once, but you can enter it with as many mascot entries as you like. You can create a whole family of mascots, or just one.
  • These have to be production quality. In other words, don't send us an outline or sketch you did on a napkin, or a 30-second MS Paint mockup. We want to see some effort!
  • Suggestion: if you're only sending one mascot, try sending multiple poses. If you're sending a bunch of mascots and can't do multiple poses, send them in a pose that's easy to use for a variety of scenarios.
  • Preferred in vector formats, but rasterized images are ok, too.
  • Keep the mascot theme relevant! We don't have any need for a cartoon hippopotamus mascot, you know?
  • Do not use trademarked or copyrighted materials. Note how our character's name is Sonny, not Sony?
  • The grand prize (Wii, NTSC) is open to international entrants.
  • Contest is open until 11:59pm EST on Sunday, May 6th.
  • Send your entries to us at contest [AT] Make sure you put "MASCOT" in the title of your email. Attachments are cool.
Thanks and good luck to everyone!
