Australian 3D Print service Formero is running a contest for the "most creative and innovative use of Objet 3D printing technology". The prize: AUD$1000 and AUD$2000 worth of Formero's 3D print services. That's AUD$3000 in total for one of you creative readers.
The contest, called "When Images Come To Life" is pretty open as you need only produce something interesting that fits within the technical parameters of their Objet 3D printers (full details at the link below.) That and a 200 word description of your item, sufficiently worded to convince the judges that you should win. Enter by November 7th of this year.
