Fall is fast approaching in the United States, which means one thing: new iPods will soon be here! As we count down to the launch of Apple’s next generation of portable media players, we’re launching an art contest – the New iPod Countdown Contest – with prizes by leading earphone maker Shure.

The rules are simple: use your artistic skills – Photoshopping, 3-D rendering, or traditional 2-D art – to create a realistic or semi-realistic “next-generation iPod.” It can be an iPod, mini tablet computer, iPod Phone, or something different, as long as it’s obviously a portable media player from Apple. This time, we are looking only for serious entries – not humorous ones – so submit wisely. You can submit as many entries as you want.

Art must be submitter’s original work and submitted only to iLounge. Previous submissions are not eligible – create something new and better!

Submit your picture(s) to our 2006 iPod Countdown Contest Gallery – minimum size 640×480 pixels. We will pick three winners to win awesome prizes from Shure – one Grand Prize winner will get a pair of top-rated E500PTH Sound Isolating Earphones (retail value: $550.00), with two additional winners receiving Shure E4c and E3c earphones, respectively.
