2022 BenQ DesignVue competition - Very Peri

Design a desktop wallpaper inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year, Very Peri, for the chance to win amazing graphic design tools

04-14-2022

 

At BenQ, we love colour; colour is at the forefront of our AQCOLOR technology. You’ve heard us talk about colour, at shows and events, during webinars and masterclasses, and our love of colour is, in fact, the reason why we developed AQCOLOR Technology: so designers, photographers, videographers, and any creatives working with colour can focus on the creative process instead of worrying about how accurate their screen is.

 

The only colour worry we want you to have, is deciding which colours to use in your next project to stand out/wow your clients/create beautiful art! So, if you’re up for a colour challenge, then you have to take part in our competition! Design a desktop wallpaper inspired by this year’s most popular colour, Pantone’s Very Peri, for the chance to win a BenQ DesignVue monitor and other must-have designer tools.

 

The rules are as simple as ever: 

  1. Design a desktop wallpaper that’s inspired by Very Peri
  2. Download the AQCOLOR logo from here and add it to your wallpaper
  3. Upload the final image on Instagram, and in the description, add the hashtags #benqcolor and #AQCOLOR, and mention @aqcolor_by_benq. Make sure to add your country name in the description too.
  4. Finally, follow @aqcolor_by_benq on Instagram.

 

The deadline for uploading your entry is the 30th of June 2022, 23:59 BST.
