There's More Than One Way to Skin a Table at UB and Absolute Poker

The Pair of Leading Online Poker Sites' New Table Skin Design Competition Has $1,000 Cash and a VIP Las Vegas Package Up for Grabs, so Get Creative and Get Ready to Hang With the Cool Crowd in Sin City During the 2010 World Series of Poker*

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) -  UB and Absolute Poker's new Table Skin Design Contest is calling all 'Picassos' and graphic design gurus out there who think they've got the creative flare and talent to 'color' the felts at the pair of online poker rooms with a whole new look and feel. The competition winner will pocket $1,000 in cash, plus a VIP travel package for Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker* ("WSOP*").

The worlds of graphic design and online poker don't seem like obvious bedfellows at first glance, but look a little closer, and discover a clean sheet waiting to be drawn on. The Table Skin Design Contest gives graphic designers, artists and students the perfect challenge of creating something aesthetically pleasing for poker players to look at while they contemplate their next move at the table, often for hours on end.

Competition entries should be creative, appropriate and respectful of the brand's logos, visually appealing to poker players, and flexible enough to be used on all table formats, be they ring games, multi-table tournaments, heads-up or short-handed. Tick all the right boxes, and it could earn you a ticket to Sin City. The prize package includes airfares for two to Las Vegas during the WSOP*, 4 nights accommodation, $1K in spending money, invitation to the CEREUS VIP Party on July 5, plus the winning table skin will be featured at Absolute Poker or UB.

To enter, download the design template, create a design using drawings, photos, images, logo etc... Go to the Facebook Absolute Poker fan page or the UB fan page. Become a fan, if you aren't already one, and upload your table skin image to the Absolute Poker or UB fan page WALL with your username in the caption. Once your designs are on the Facebook photo gallery, fill out the Contest Submission Form.

Each entrant can add up to five Table skin designs, but each must use a caption with your Absolute Poker or UB username on each skin design, and feel free to tag yourself in the photo. The June 8th Absolute Poker and UB newsletter will list the top ten skins. Make sure you're receiving it, because you'll be able to vote for your favorite, and the skin that gets the most votes wins.

Top Ten designs will win an exclusive Absolute Poker or UB gear pack. So, go on get inspired.
