Deadline to submit is 12 PM Pacific Time on September 30, 2022!


How to enter

2. Hashtag it with #HeyRGD and #HeyRGDTO by editing your post or adding it to the caption/comments. You must use both hashtags.⁠
3. To increase your chances of winning, provide a brief explanation of your design choices and how they achieve the project's goals.⁠


Winners will be selected by a Judge from each sponsoring company. Winners will be chosen based on the strength of their work and explanation of their choices and process.
