DVICE, SCIFI.COM and MAKE present the 'Make a Cylon' contest

OK, we know you guys are psyched that the new season of Battlestar Galactica is starting up soon (April 4, in fact). So are we. In fact, today DVICE, SCIFI.COM and MAKE magazine are kicking off a big contest to celebrate the return of the show. The plan: design a Cylon and win.

You know the Cylons — that fanatical race of genocidal robots? There are a bunch of different kinds, from toaster-like automatons to human-looking androids to fighter planes, and the idea is for contestants to mod something (or create something from scratch) to make it look like a Cylon. You can put photos of your entry on Flickr or video on YouTube with a special tag or just send them in to a specific e-mail address we've set up (details after the Continue link below). Judging the entries will be none other than BSG cast members Tricia Helfer and Grace Park. The best ones will be featured on the SCI FI Channel!



The best entry or entries will be featured on the SCI FI Channel. Other prizes include:

* • Battlestar Galactica DVD box sets for seasons 1, 2 and 3
* • Battlestar T-shirts, posters and other exclusive swag
* • 10 MAKE year one box sets signed by the MAKE team!


Cylons Tricia Helfer (Number Six) and Grace Park (Boomer) will judge the entries.
