If you have ideas that can top Jonathan Ive's vision for the next iThing, then this competition's for you. Mac|Life, Maxon, and the Academy of Art University want to see your best fake concepts with Apple's signature flare. Yes, you may have noticed that Apple is not one of the sponsors, and in fact, they have nothing to do with the competition at all, hence why the entries are officially called "fauxtotypes."
Attention all industrial designers, 2D artists, and 3D illustrators: Do you think you have an almost paranormal ability to predict the future of Apple product development? Now's your chance to show us what you've got!
...Whether your visions are imminently plausible or borderline absurd, we want to see how you interpret the future of Apple product design.
The best submissions will appear in Mac|Life magazine and on Maclife.com. Our grand prize winner will receive a scholarship for the Academy of Art University, and a boxed copy of Maxon Cinema 4D. Four runners-up, plus our grand prize winner, will each receive $100 gift cards for Newegg.com.

Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
