Inspired by the totally inspiring NZ Flag consultation process, we think we can do even better. We want you to design a flag for the internet! Feel very free to incorporate the Bigpipe logo, and keep it safe for work. Obviously. 🙂

To enter, do one of the following: post your entry to our competition thread on Facebook, tweet it with the hashtag #InternetFlag and tag @BigpipeNZ in, or enter via the competition Geekzone thread.

We’ll decide on a favourite, and give the winner a $200 JB Hi-Fi voucher, as well as their design printed on a T-shirt. We’ll also embloggen the top entries. So crank out Photoshop, or MS Paint! We want to see some creativity. And memes. Lots of dank, dank memes. Go hard.
