Contest: Design an awesome GelaSkin, win an awesome GelaSkin

When we mentioned a few weeks back that GelaSkins was now printing custom skins for mobile phones, MobileCrunch reader Ankit Gupta said “This is something you guys should just do a contest for… give away 5 of these or something, you know?”

Yes, Ankit – we know. Ask, and you shall receive. We’ve teamed up with GelaSkins to give away skins to 5 lucky TechCrunch Network readers, custom printed for any one of 13 different phone models they support. Want one? Find out how to win after the jump.

How to enter:

Entering is about as easy as it gets: Design a skin for your phone, and send it to us at


  • You can design the skin however you’d want. We’d recommend doing the design in the GelaSkins Creator and either taking a screenshot of your finished design or hitting the share button and sending us the link, but you’re free to use Photoshop or any other tools you have available.
  • You must be 18 or older and a resident of the U.S.
  • Your design must be for one of the phones that GelaSkins currently prints skins for. These are: iPhone 3G/3GS/Original, Palm Pre, BlackBerry Tour, BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve 8900, BlackBerry Curve 8300, BlackBerry Storm, BlackBerry Pearl 8100, BlackBerry Pearl 8110, BlackBerry 8800 World Edition, HTC G1, Razor V3 (V3c, V3m) , or Razor V3i (V3t, V3r)

Our 5 favorite designs (whether they make us laugh or they’re just nice designs, anything can be our favorite) will win. We’ll pick the winners next Thursday, December 10th. Have fun!

As an example, here’s the design I would enter if I weren’t, you know, throwing the contest:
