What is TRiK?

Powerful and Stylish

Sony's TRiK™ docking system is a unique, brand new audio enhancement machine capable of transforming your musical world into something you've previously only dreamed of. In the past, musical superiority was relegated only to bland black boxes. Today, with the advent of the TRiK™ , your musical experience can now be far more colorful and far more customized. The cool and interchangeable skins you can download or create yourself make the TRiK™  more than just an iPod-friendly powerhouse. Nay, the TRiK™  is the perfect representation of you and your tastes.

Check out the TRiK™  community group site

  

Artwork Created by $reiiz

Exemplify your skinning superiority. Create a unique, one-of-a-kind skin for the TRiK™ that represents a musical genre of your choice. To participate, download the skin template below and start getting creative.

Making an awesome skin means a potential win (that rhymes), and a win means incredible prizes including your very own TRiK™ and a Sony® Playstation® 3 computer entertainment system (meaning you can listen to awesome music and play awesome video games AT THE SAME TIME).

A winning entry will be visually stunning, so make sure you really bring out your A-game on this one.

See $reiiz's skin example above for inspiration.

I dunno about the rest of you but I think 2nd and 3rd place have the better prizes. I mean seriously who's gonna use a Video Camera as often as a blue ray player or a PS3?

I'd say the judges did a pretty good job picking quality entries of all different styles. Does anyone know what happens with the 10 alternate semifinalists? Will they replace those in the top 25 if there is a problem, or will there be 35 semifinalists total?

I think the 10 alternate semifinalists would have replaced the semifinalist if they didn't upload their file to the ftp sight, or if the file was somehow damaged.

The rules don't exactly say they can use it for whatever they want as they please - the terms say that for 1 year the artwork may be used in promotion of the contest or sponsor's products ("may be posted at the Contest Site or otherwise displayed, but not sold"), then for the 10 year period Sony gets exclusive use of the artwork for skins (meaning, nobody else may use it for skins) and Sony may display the artwork in connection with promotion of the whole Sony Trik skin thing, and any other use requires the approval in writing from the artist. So while it's pretty broad use (as it makes sense to have it, since what use would it be for them to pay up for a skin that they may not use in advertising materials which include displaying it on their site or wherever else they would be selling it?) it's not exactly a 'free for all'. =p

Regarding the e-mails, I'm not sure what you mean by 'nobody saw the mail' - several people, myself included, have received them and plainly stated so in the comments to this news article. Yes, the waiting to see all the semi-finalists is a drag, but we're still pretty much within the time period 'around Aug 6' so ehh. The staff are probably recovering from all the birthday cake.

Since it includes the login info to FTP, no. Not to mention I don't think there's a need to try to prove anything with e-mail screenshots - just wait for the on-site announcement.
