Win a trip to New Zealand courtesy of Peter Jackson

Well, sort of...

Weta Workshop and Wellington start-up Intergrid have teamed up with Hong Kong US$2 billion (NZ$2.8b) business incubator Cyberport to run two 3-D global design competitions for aspiring digital artists.
Entrants must use Intergrid's "green button" application – which lets people access supercomputing power at the click of a button – to create their digital designs.
The [COLOR=#256091]first competition[/COLOR] asks entrants to design "ray gun" models and characters based on Weta's sci-fi comic Dr Grordbort, which features antique-style, sci-fi hand weapons.
Two entrants will win a trip to New Zealand to meet Weta Workshop boss Richard Taylor and Weta Workshop illustrator Greg Broadmore, who created the Dr Grordbort concept and was conceptual designer for Peter Jackson's low-budget hit alien movie District 9.
So all I have to do is fly out of New Zealand airspace, win the competition and go back home again... seriously, Wellington is my home town...

You lucky person!

We LOVED Wellington - the city has a great feel and I LOVED that WETA sculpture in the centre.
