element14 unveils massive Raspberry Pi wall art as contest prize

 element14, an Avnet Community, has opened submissions for a chance to win PiMassive, a larger-than-life replica Raspberry Pi, which can be displayed as wall art. Applicants are encouraged to be creative in their application and express why they would like to own this unique prize. 

PiMassive was created by Wesley Gardner for the element14 PiCasso Design Challenge, and was completed in 2019 after 440 hours of 3D printing, CNC work and painting. Today, the 13.9 pound, 20×32-inch Raspberry Pi 3 B+ is a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

“We are extremely excited about the PiMassive giveaway and are happy to share it with the element14community, which includes a good deal of Raspberry Pi enthusiasts,” said Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community and Social Media for element14. “We are eager to read the submissions and learn more about what community members plan to do with PiMassive if they’re selected as its new owner.”

To enter to win PiMassive, applicants should include the following in their submission: 

  • Photographs of where the PiMassive will be showcased
  • Motivation for wanting to own PiMassive 
  • Interesting or compelling reasons for ownership
  • Expression of appreciation and value for wall art
