    Samsung is hosting the Samsung Mobile Design Competition in partnership with Deezen, a leading design magazine. It wants contestants to submit designs for new accessories for Galaxy smartphones and tablets. The winners in each category will win cash prizes from a pool of $40,000.

    The company launched a similar competition with Deezen two years ago. Samsung invited designers to submit designs for new QLED TV stands. This latest competition has two categories – Next Mobile + and Next Mobile Wallpaper.

    Prizes worth $40,000 are up for grabs

    The Next Mobile + category is for those who want to submit accessory designs for Galaxy smartphones, tablets and wearables. The accessories can include smartphone cases, tablet covers, watch straps or cases for earbuds. The designs should enhance the device and also provide value for the user. Contestants are free to design any kind of accessory that they want for Galaxy devices. Samsung will be particularly interested in those that interact digitally with its devices to provide enhanced functionality.

    Samsung also wants designs for wallpapers hence the Next Mobile Wallpaper Paradigm category. It's not looking for simple designs, mind you. Samsung says that these wallpapers should be interactive and contextually aware so that they can provide useful information as well. Professional designers and design students can both take part in this competition.

    The top five finalists in each category will then be flown to London to present their ideas in front of a jury which will include Samsung executives and Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs. The jury is then going to choose the top three winners in each category who will be hosted by the company at the Samsung Developer Conference in San Jose later this year. That's where they will get their prizes.

    The winner in each category will receive the top prize of $10,000 while the runner up and third place gets $5,000 and $3,000 respectively. The fourth and fifth-placed entrants in each category will get $1,000 each.
