Have you ever thought that you’d make a good shoe designer? Do you doodle shoes or enjoy doing mock-ups on the customization pages that most sneaker brands offer? Your time to shine just might be here thanks to Under Armour’s “Hack of the Week” contest, a free-to-enter Curry 5 design competition with prizes ranging from a trip to a Warriors game and having your design featured on UA’s social media channels.
The competition will occur over four different week-long entry periods, starting in mid-July and running to the end of August. At the end of each round a panel of Under Armour judges will select two entrants to advance based on the design’s aesthetic and the creativity of the design’s description. The winners will then go head-to-head in a poll ran on the Under Armour Basketball Instagram. The winner of that penultimate poll will then advance to a “Final Four” round at the end of the contest, where the public will vote again, this time on the contest’s ultimate winner.
The “Hack of the Week” Contest is open to the US and Canada. You must be at least 13 years old and have an Instagram account to enter. For more info on the contest check out the video below and head over to the “Hack The Curry 5” website for further details, and to start designing-the first entry period is open now.
