Starting off with an iPod Touch & iPod Nano in the first round, the prizes get gradually sweeter with a MacBook in the second round, a MacBook Pro in the third round, and to finish it off, the Holy Grail for any designer, the latest Apple Mac Pro with a 30" HD Cinema LCD display.
Each round will have have a specific theme, starting out with the potentially controversial "US Election Propaganda Posters", but aside from the chosen theme, the designers are free to do exactly what they want;
"Our audience is a design savvy, online community of creative amateurs and professionals around the world," said Crestock founder Geir Are Jensen.
