The smart fortwo (or more commonly known as "smart car") is the perfect fit for a ton of reasons. It's easy on the eyes, which helps with your street cred, and it's good for the earth (it's 95% recyclable!), which helps with your forest cred. Need to find street parking? The smart car can parallel with ease in the slimmest of availabilities. The smart car fits with your needs and looks great doing it. But now you have the chance to show how it can fit even more perfectly into artists' lives like yours.

Cars say a lot about you, and artists yearn for that special flair that makes them stand out from the crowd and complement their artistic skills and personality. Have you ever wanted to spruce up a car's exterior to reflect your style? Well, now's your chance! We provide you with a blank-canvas template to let your imagination run wild – or drive wild. So, get behind the wheel and create a sleek smart car skin design to win! The first-place design for an epic smart car skin will be printed, put on a smart car, and taken on the smart car Street Tour!

We've provided you with two template options. The JPG version of the template provides you with a brilliant photograph of a smart car, which you can use to draw / paint / illustrate / whatever on top of. The PSD version is a Photoshop-compatible file with the car body masked out for you. This means we've basically cut things out so you can get creative without much trouble. Use whichever of the templates works best for you, and happy skinning!

I'm guessing with all the entries they won't post the finalist til much later in the day, that much is expected. But where will they be announced is there a special gallery or will notice be sent to inboxes?

I think it will be done in a news article and a notice will be sent out. Just my guess since they haven't mentioned a place of posting, but who knows with these wacky peeps they love to keep us guessing :).
