To celebrate the highly anticipated release of TRON: Legacy, in cinemas December 17, Don’t Panic are giving one designer the chance to win a MacBook and to have their artwork seen across the country.
Follow the design brief and entry guidelines below to create a TRON: Legacy inspired postcard based on the theme, ‘Hidden Places’. 80,000 copies of the winning entry will be printed and distributed throughout the UK via Don’t Panic’s packs. The winner will also receive a brand new MacBook, which is better than buying one. We’ll also reward five runners up with official TRON: Legacy merchandise packs.
Upload your designs here, to the TRON: Legacy gallery, which will then be open to the public vote. To be in with a chance of winning this prize, follow the brief and guidelines below and let your creativity explore places it has never been before!

In 1930s America, with an economy in wretched decline and drought ravaging the heartland, a young boy from Hermosa Beach California decided to fashion a bellyboard out of a piece of wood and teach himself how to surf. This boy was LeRoy Grannis, who, decades later, would become one of the surfing industry’s best loved figures and perhaps the most important photographer and documentarian of surf culture ever to look through a lens.
This August Taschen are publishing LeRoy Grannis: Surf Photography of the 1960s and 1970s, a beautiful hardcover retrospectivebook chronicling this golden era of surfing and presenting a huge collection of images from the photographer’s personal archives; from perfect barrels at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu’s famed North Shore.

He graduated from Munich’s Esmod Fashion School in 2007 after which he worked for Henrik Vibskov in Copenhagen before starting his own label in 2008.
