This post is sponsored by the sleek, stylish, lightweight HP Spectre XT Ultrabook™, inspired by Intel. Vote for your favorite bag design!

Phase One of HP Ultrabook's Bag Design Competition is over and the Contest Experts have spoken. There were plenty of great designs and we at Core77 would like to congratulate all of the entrants. However, in the end, 40 semi-finalists have been selected to move onto the next phase of this competition in pursuit of designing the ultimate HP Bag.

It's now time for YOU to determine which five of the top 40 semi-finalists are worthy of the potential grand prize. Voting will remain open until September 26th, with the top five vote-getters advancing to the final phase where the Contest Experts will choose one of those five as the Grand Prized Winner.

Remember, there's a lot on the line for these forty potential winners—the five finalists will receive a new HP Spectre XT Ultrabook, undoubtedly a nice prize, but nothing compared to the $10,000 cash prize for first place (plus the laptop!). So make your voice heard and VOTE TODAY to let us know who you think truly deserves to win.

This post is sponsored by the sleek, stylish, lightweight HP Spectre XT Ultrabook™, inspired by Intel. Design a bag that is just as stylish!

We all have one—you know, one of those bulky, semi-functional laptop bag. It might be utilitarian black or pop paisley, but chances are it's more protection than style statement. There's no room to complain...here's your chance to throw your hat in the ring to win $10,000 and an HP Envy Ultrabook by designing the ultimate laptop bag in the HP + Project Runway Design Contest.

As a sponsor of Lifetime TV's Project Runway, HP has a commitment to style and design. Their new, sleek HP ENVY Ultrabook laptop weighs in just under 4 pounds with a slim profile of 14.72"W x 9.95"D x 0.78" H and is in need of your designs. The jury panel composed of Jill Fehrenbacher, founder of Inhabitat, Mondo Gurerra of Project Runway and LinYee Yuan, Editor at Core77 will be looking for designs that display innovation, style, design details, practicality, marketability and appropriateness for the HP Ultrabook ENVY.

First, design a bag to hold an HP ENVY Ultrabook: the dimensions are 37.4 cm (14.72") W x 25.3 cm (9.95") D x 2 cm (0.78"). Then check out the contest site where you can:

  • Upload up to five images of your design (in a .jpg, .png, or .gif format at 800x600 pixels wide)
  • Enter a Title of your Design
  • Enter a short explanation of your bag design: concept/design/inspiration and include materials used, size/dimensions of bag, and production/manufacturing process

Don't wait, enter your designs today! The deadline for entries is Saturday, SEPTEMBER 8th! The second phase of the contest opens up voting to the public to identify five finalists who will win their own HP Envy Ultrabook. The jury team picks a winner for the $10,000 prize!

A truly original contest needs a true original to kick it off. Watch the official announcement from Project Runway winning designer Mondo Guerra and Inhabitat's Jill Fehrenbacher.
