We all love 3D printing contests, right? They provide us a chance to show off our creativity and design skills, and hopefully walk away with a prize as well as some deserved recognition. 3D printing has been spreading across rep-1the world like a wildfire that can jump oceans. From large metropolitan areas, to small cities and towns across nearly every nation, 3D printers are invading. What better way to utilize 3D printing, then through a contest that brings a bit of recognition to one’s own home town?

That’s just what THRE3D.com is doing with their RepYourCity Street Art Challenge. The challenge, which run from now until Sunday, July 6th, asks participants to come up with their own creative design which utilizes 3D printing in some way, to create a piece of street art that ties into one’s hometown.

“Street artists like Banksy and Shepard Fairey combined their designs with the environment and created unique art with simple remedies,” states the contest page. “Imagine the possibilities that 3D printing could give to these artists!  With “RepYourCity” we invite you to represent your city and show the unlimited possibilities of 3D Printing.”
