You may remember the Design a 574 competition we ran in the lead-up to the 2010 Swap & Cop. Well if you didn’t take notice, the guy who won it goes by the name of Kalin Thompson. What you might not have realised is Kalin is a bloody talented artist and last night saw the opening of his solo exhibition at Butter Beat on Brunswick St. With Taz on a mission of top secret nature, twizzy was left alone to brave the wilds of Friday night in the Valley.

With less than a week before the competition closes, it was time to give everyone a poke and tell you to hurry up before it’s too late! If we can give you one piece of last-minute advice it will be this: Don’t constrain yourself to just thinking it’s a colouring competition, we’re open to any interpretation of the rules so long as you are using the entry forms provided.

As an incentive to burn the midnight oil we’ll also reveal the prizes for the podium position:

1st – 2 pairs New Balance 574 + Goodies

2nd – 1 Pair New Balance 574 + Goodies

3rd – 1 Pair New Balance 574 + Goodies, but less than 2nd…

4th thru 10th – Some goodies care of New Balance Australia

We also have some nice stuff from the guys at NB to give to our favourite international entrant.

The Munny Competition – Laced, Brisbane by Taz

2010-08-19-Munny Comp2-1 When?…Last night…Where? Laced Brisbane, What went down? Probably the most insane gathering of toy customizers going head to head in the The Munny Money Competition, for prizes and all out glory. Almost two years after the original competition this year marks a ginormous step up in creativity, execution and craftsmanship. Brisbane kids turned the damn thing out and tricked it up to a new level, everything from embedding lights, carving cavities, to executing super detailed paint jobs and creating props from scratch.

I need not say anymore you need jump your ass into the pictures and checkout the insanity. Thanks to the guys at Laced for letting yours truly to be part of the judging panel accompanied by vintage toy extraordinaire James Straker and graffiti legend Sofles.
