P&G and "designboom" are taking entries for the reinvent packaging design contest. With regards to U.S. standards, the payoff is not great, considering big time design can go into the millions. But hey, who needs mulah when you can have fame.

- packaging + in-store design competition -
reinvent the package design of Maestro Limpio®, Buena Vibra®, Salvo®,

PROCTER & GAMBLE undertakes, in the event that it uses for production one of the designs submitted for the contest (wholly or in part), to pay a one-off fee to the designer of $2000 USD. this does not apply to the 2 winners, their fee is the prize as written above.
Deadline for applications registration is September 20, 2007. I would have to say that the website for this contest is suspiciously cheesy.
