From April 19 to May 24, 2006, aspiring artists can visit http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/k/kameo/designskincontest.htm to get more information and electronically submit a unique, originally designed âskinâ of one of the elemental warriors or Kameo herself from âKameo: Elements of Power.â Designers will enter for a chance to have the whole world play their designs when they are made publicly available at a later time.
The contest is open to aspiring artists 13 years of age or older. Entries must consist of an original design of either Kameo or one of the elemental warriors, a title (example: âRoller Ninja Pummelweedâ) and a brief description.
