The Final Round of last year’s COLORWAR design competition.

#COLORWAR 2015 Roundup

After a week of over 100 exciting design submissions, we’ve selected our finalists for the Main Event at Bitcamp!

COLORWAR is a chance for our Bitcamp participants and community to get their creative juices flowing through intense design challenges. We asked people to create a visual that expresses their interpretation of Bitcamp’s Imagine Tomorrow theme, and WOW were we blown away by the incredible submissions. These visuals were submitted on Twitter — you can explore them with #COLORWAR. So thanks for participating, friends!

A big thank you is owed our COLORWAR sponsor IBM Design for making this happen. Be sure to talk to Una Kravets (COLORWAR judge and former finalist x IBM Designer) and the rest of the team to learn more about their organization and how you can get involved.

Five contestants are advancing to the COLORWAR Main Event on April 11 at Bitcamp, where they’ll battle it out through five rounds of knockout design challenges for some cool swag and the chance to win 4K Monitors, graphic tablets, and more. They were selected for their adventurous creativity and visual talent.
