A monument dedicated to late Apple founder Steve Jobs is in the works to go up in the main square in St. Petersburg, Russia, but the organization behind the initiative wants help with coming up with the design.
A Russian-based company called The Foundation of IT Progress has launched a competition to find the best concept for a memorial in St. Petersburg, which is considered the country’s information technology (IT) hub.
“This can be any idea – a classical monument, stele, memorial plaque and even any kind of modern electronic installation,” the project notes via a translated version of its website. “His ideas helped IT technologies become so widespread. A memorial should be installed in St. Petersburg, the memorial to this man of genius, who sped [sic] up the progress of our civilization.”
The top concept will receive the latest iPad model with WiFi + 4G, while the second place winner take home an iPhone 4S 16GB. Third prize is an iPhone 4 8GB.
The winner will be selected by a panel of IT professionals in St. Petersburg, as well as votes from Internet users. Submissions must be made in either Russian or English and submitted via the website or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is 12:00 p.m. (Moscow time) on Monday, August 6 — or 4:00 a.m. ET.
The winners will be announced on Monday, August 13.
The company is urging applicants to submit pictures and videos that help elaborate on their concept.
