In just a few short weeks, one lucky amateur artist will have helped to design a future Polaris snowmobile graphic; and in addition will be awarded a new Polaris snowmobile. The Polaris Design Your Own Graphics Contest is in the final stages.
Thousands of would be designers took a crack at concepting a 2007 Polaris snowmobile graphic and now only three remain. It’s up to Polaris customers to decide which graphic scheme will prevail through online voting at polarisindustries.com.
The Design Your Own contest was launched this past spring as part of the Polaris 2006 Snow Check Select early order program. Polaris fans could download a blank outline of a new model Polaris snowmobile and were then given free reign to concept a future Polaris graphic and color scheme.
The entries virtually poured in and a team of Polaris designers, product managers, marketing experts and engineers reviewed the entries. From mild to wild, loads of truly radical and creative designs were submitted.
Voting concludes May 29, 2005 and the winning design will become an exclusive 2007 graphic. In addition, the winning designer will win a 2007 model snowmobile featuring their design.
The top vote getter will be announced June 15. Then Polaris fans will be encouraged to follow along online and watch the winning design transform from dream to reality; culminating with an unveiling at Haydays, September 10, 2005.
The pen behind the winning graphic will also enjoy an all expense paid trip for two to watch his or her sled be built at our manufacturing facility in Roseau, Minnesota. While there, the top vote getter will meet factory personnel, explore the Polaris museum and soak in the culture that is Polaris.
