Designs can be submitted through sketches, models or other media; submission deadline is July 30, 2004, and winners will be announced August 16, 2004. The winner will receive 40 square feet of his texture in 3/8-inch tempered glass that will be crated and delivered to any continental U.S. business address. As an alternative to architectural glass, the winner may select a male or female “Winged Victory” series torso from Meltdown Glass’ in-house gallery. The retail value of the grand prize is $4,000. The second place winner will receive a cast glass “wampum” bowl that is 14 inches in diameter.

Submissions will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
