Design a Dial: A New Competition by namokiMODS!
Have you ever had an idea for a dial that you think will inspire the next big trend in the Seiko modding scene? Let's partner up and bring it to life, with the:
Design a Dial Contest
This contest idea was hatched in the namokiMODS Discord Server by user @citizenband, and it was such a neat idea that we decided to go with it!
This contest is open to any interested modder who wants to have their fun, unique dial idea to be released into the community. There's no specific theme to follow, as long as it does not infringe on copyrighted content, or is NSFW (like that dial, you know what we mean).
Homage designs are accepted as long as it has a distinct personal touch.
No physical prototype is needed for this contest. You can submit your digital concept art to us. Do note that we are limiting the dial measurement to 28.5mm for it to be compatible with NH35, NH36, NH38 and NH70 movements.
How to Join and How to Win
Joining the contest is very easy. Just post your submission on IG and use the hashtag #namokiconcept for us to easily see your posts. And do set your profile to public so we can actually see it!
If you don't want copycats to steal your designs, you can also directly submit your design to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The selection of the winner comes in 2 stages:
Select Namoki Affiliate Partners choose their favorite dials among all the submissions. The Namoki Team will then choose the top 4 dial designs among the shortlisted designs.
This selection process will take approximately 2 days.
There will be a community vote split into:
1.The Semi-Finals, where the top 2 designs will advance to the next stage which is:
2. The Grand Finals, where there will be a final standoff to determine the winner!
And what do you get for entering this competition?
