2021 BenQ DesignVue competition - Inspired by Nature

10-01-2021

In the past year, we’ve all spent more time outdoors enjoying wide open spaces, and there’s no doubt that the time we spent in nature has benefitted both our mental and physical wellbeing. Experiencing the wonders of nature can also boost creativity, and it’s no secret that throughout the years, artists, sculptors, designers, inventors, architects and scientists, have all drawn inspiration from nature in coming up with reinvigorating and unique designs.

 

To celebrate our love of nature and challenge your creativity, we are launching a new competition: design a screensaver that’s inspired by nature for the chance to win a BenQ DesignVue monitor and €1,000. We want to see different natural styles and textures, whether it’s leafy, floral, or herbal patterns, earth-tone colour schemes or illustrations of breath-taking vistas; let nature be your muse!

 

As a thank you for taking part in our competition (and to Mother Nature), we pledge to plant one tree for every qualifying competition entry, with the help of OneTreePlanted. So, if you’re a designer or know a designer, make sure to spread the word so we can make the world a greener place together.

 

There are a few rules you will need to follow:

  1. Create a screensaver design that’s inspired by nature
  2. Download the AQCOLOR frame we created for the competition from here
  3. Drop your screensaver design in the frame
  4. Upload the final design* on Instagram, and in the description, add the hashtags #benqnature, #AQCOLOR and mention @aqcolor_by_benq. Make sure to add your country in the description too.
  5. Last but not least, follow @aqcolor_by_benq on Instagram.

*Simple photo submissions will not be considered as valid entries. Your screensaver must be a design.

  • Second place: one brand-new BenQ PD2725U monitor and €500
