The Free iPod Book 2.0 Contests - Winners Announced

The Free iPod Book 2.0 Contest - iLounge

Every new iLounge Guide has its contests, so we’ve lined up two great ones for the June release of The Free iPod Book 2.0! Test your artistic or photographic skills for a chance to win one of six pairs of Shure’s brand new, top-of-the-line E500PTH earphones ($499 each) - the new triple-driver earbuds that won iLounge’s 2006 Best of Show Award in January. Thanks to Shure for sponsoring these prizes! One Grand Prize winner will also win a brand-new Apple Computer Intel Mac mini, courtesy of iLounge.

Contest 1: iPod 2010 Concept Art Contest

In this no holds barred iPod 2010 Art Contest, we’re looking for the three best pieces of “future iPod” concept art out there - original art showing what you think iPods might look like 4 years from now. We will choose one winner for each of three categories:

  • Overall Best Entry: Grand Prize from iLounge: Apple Computer Intel-based Mac mini computer*, complete with Front Row, iLife ‘06, and Mac OS X 10.4 (value $599).
  • Best Realistic Entry Prize: Shure E500PTH Earphones (valued at $499)
  • Most Creative Entry Prize: Shure E500PTH Earphones (valued at $499)
  • Funniest Entry Prize: Shure E500PTH Earphones (valued at $499)

Winners announced in The Free iPod Book 2.0 | View Entries

Guidelines: Art must be submitter’s original work and submitted only to iLounge. Focus on only one category (realistic, creative, or funniest) per entry if you want to maximize your chances - we are not looking for entries that overlap categories. Looking for inspiration? Please see our favorite iPod Concepts from the last iPod Concepts contest (2004), and view our iPod Concepts photo gallery. Previous submissions are not eligible - create something new and better! Remember, this is the iPod of 2010, not the iPod of 2007, so be creative!

Contest 2: iPods Everywhere Photo Contest

If you’re not an artist, take a shot at the iPods Everywhere Photo Contest, where all it takes to win is the top photograph of an iPod in one of three settings.

  • iPod And Car: Creatively photograph an iPod and a car together. While we’d prefer the iPod to be inside the car, creative entries with the iPod outside a car will also be considered. (Prize: Shure E500PTH Earphones, Valued at $499)
  • iPod In Home: Creatively photograph an iPod inside a place where people are living. Houses, apartments, dorm rooms, and other traditional dwellings are all fair game. (Prize: Shure E500PTH Earphones, Valued at $499)
  • iPod On The Go: Creatively photograph an iPod outside of a home or car - during your commute or travels outdoors, on a train, or someplace else; with portable speakers or headphones, whatever shows off the iPod in use while out and about. (Prize: Shure E500PTH Earphones, Valued at $499)

What are your favorite photograph entries for each category (Home, Car, Outside)? Which entries do you think will win for each of those categories?

I hope they’re not, since the guy w/ the 3yr old granddaughter and the stupid ‘mouse’ picture basically voted for themselves again and again.

Yeah, except you can only vote for one entry once.  Everyone that is convinced that the top few are the top because they vote for themselves a million times is wrong.  Just try and vote for an entry twice—it can’t be done.

“stupid mouse?”

I don’t understand. I realize that its a poor quality photo but I did put a lot of thought and effort into making it right. I just wanted to make my picture to have something to think about just for a sec and get a laugh out of, instead of some quick snapshot of a cute little girl with her iPod doing nothing. I’m not trying to boast, I’m just saying… Do you know what I mean?

Oh yeah and about the votes, I honestly didn’t cheat or anything witht he votes. If I did, I would have voted 5 stars all the way through.

Anyway, I hope it doesn’t go by the votes. The best picture for the car is the one with the young female standing outside beside a car, its in black and white.

The best outside one is definitely the picture of the funeral. I like that one a lot.

Hi sarsosari.
Just clear your browse cookies after you voted and you can vote on the same picture again.
That’s lame and I believe that are too many people doing this.

So, Which ones look like winners to all of you?

My choices so far.


but I could change my mind.

Posted by loungelizard on May 25, 2006 at 10:49 AM (CDT)


I actually like mine the best. (But people say I’m biased…)

Any idea how long the judging takes?

Posted by praetor on May 25, 2006 at 11:50 AM (CDT)


Right—but what a waste of time.  It is lame.  I hope people have better things to do with their time than that.  Who knows!!

Posted by sarsosari on May 25, 2006 at 12:53 PM (CDT)


I think a lot of the entries are pretty good. I also think people who use “Tactile extrusion” and “holographic emitters” in their entries are gunning for the “most CREATIVE” prizes. Sheesh. Scientists are working on a camo suit that projects the surrounding foliage onto the suit itself, so I don’t think advanced stuff is all that far off. Lets all IMAGINEER! ;)

Posted by barkolounge on May 25, 2006 at 7:48 PM (CDT)


my favourites are:

most realistic:
a concept who have everything.

jajaja, are we being brainwashed by the iPod?

most creative:
“apple home final.jpg”
a lot of devices that Apple keep in mind…
