|DESIGN A PICK COMPETITION
To celebrate the launch of our new guitar pick range, we are launching our 'Design A Pick' competition with a main prize of 200 of your winning design picks, plus the honour of having your pick launched by Rotosound.
The competition is to design an image to fit on a standard pick shape. The design needs to be bright and creative, exciting and clearly show your passion for music. It will be a striking imaginative concept, well executed and have an originality and point of difference that makes it stand out from the others.
There are eight categories to enter: rock, metal, blues, folk, punk, psychedelic, pop and jazz. Each category will have six winners who will have the opportunity to see their creation put in to production and go on sale worldwide, as well as receiving 200 of their winning Rotosound picks.
The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges including the Rotosound CEO Jason How and will be announced on the 31st July.
