Uniden corporation is looking for new ideas to define the next 
generation of cordless phones. If you are a U.S. resident (citizen or 
green card holder) age 18 (or age of majority in state of residence) and 
older, you can have a chance to design your vision of the next 
revolutionary cordless phones and compete for more than $6500 in awards. 
Exercise your creative imagination and let your ideas be heard.

FOR INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPANTS: 
Non-US participants are also eligible to win. International winners must 
complete a Form W-8BEN in order to claim your prize. Withholding rates 
vary depending on the country. Your winning will be the total prize less 
applicable taxes for your country.

We are looking for the next generation home phone concepts. What do you 
think the next generation of cordless phones should work or look like 
for the U.S. market in the next 2 to 3 years? We're NOT looking for a 
long list of specs or phone ideas that already exist. We're looking for 
a cool new concept or "big idea" supported by usage scenario and user 
experience illustrations.

Key guidelines 
We're allowing ONE page per submission (11x 17). Each entry must include 
a description of the design inspiration and a usage scenario. Please use 
the provided template as a starting point. Please make sure that the 
text is visible (12 pt. font or higher) and the images are large to make 
it easy for the judges to review. 
Keep in mind, the Uniden logo must be included somewhere on the phone. 
Use the logo files provided (one is for light background and one is for 
dark).

Please look at the current products in the market (provided)

Judging criteria: 
Aesthetic / Creativity / Originality (40% weight): Is the idea / design 
unique? Does the concept convey WOW or game-changing characteristics? 
Innovation / Fulfillment (30% weight): How well does the phone address 
general consumer needs in different age groups (late 20's - mid 30's, 
mid 30's - 50's, 50+) / frustrations? 
Feasibility / Effective use of materials (30% weight): Can this idea / 
product be realistically implemented with current or near-future 
technology (within the next 2 to 3 years)?

Submissions may be illustrated or rendered in any format - hand 
sketches, digital drawings, or renderings - rendering tool used will not 
affect judging process. You may submit up to two different entries 
total.
