SideQuesting’s Light Cycle Design Contest

Tron: Legacy (and the original Tron!) is coming to Blu-Ray next month, and to celebrate one of the first “videogames in a movie” franchises we’re having a contest to coincide!

We’re hosting our first ever sketch contest on SideQuesting, and it centers around the classic vehicle: the Light Cycle.  It’s one of the coolest rides to ever zip along a path of light on the silver screen, and the latest Tron sequel saw an incredible update to it.  The goal is for you to create/sketch a light cycle concept, but to do so in around 2 hours or less.  Pencil sketches, Photoshop, Painter… whatever you want to use to create it is up to you.  We just want to see a great idea (or two).


We’ll feature each eligible concept on our site and select a winner.  The winner will receive a copy of the Art of Tron Legacy art book, a White Light Cycle toy figurine, and a Tron Deluxe Light Cycle.  Submit as many concepts/images as you’d like (per the rules below, no purchase necessary). Total value of prizes: $75

You can be as creative as you’d like, sketching something that’s more modern or classic, or completely unique.  Each entry will be evaluated on merits of cool design, creativity and sketch by the SideQuesting staff.  Create an entire cool scene, or just a cool idea on a napkin.

See the full rules below, and email your designs to with your name and address.

For an example of what we’ve done in the past, our sister site CarDesignFetish just ran a Batmobile Design Contest as well.  Head on over for the look!

  • Well, Why shall I post a Design, if I can’t get
    a prize…there is nö thrill. Say I would win(Germany) who would get the Prize? 2nd Place? That’s unfair, isn’t it?

  • Hi Adnan!
    I’ve adjusted the rules for clarification. We can only ship prizes to US addresses only for this competition.

    Sorry for the confusion!


  • Shahidul Syed Alam

    Do we submit our designs here??

    Also what will non-US winners receive if prizes cannot be shipped?


  • Hi!
    We will offer an international (non-US) prize as well. The international winner will receive a copy of the Art of Tron Legacy art book.
    Please send all submissions to:

    Thanks, and looking forward to your entries!

  • Cool .. will we be able to see all the entries somewhere on the website?

  • Yup! I’ll try and set up a big, continuously-updated gallery once we get more entries. Til then, here’s the first set:

  • Kyle Gallardo

    How many entries are allowed per person? and if one, can we do some sort of “vehicle select” screen? :P

  • As many entries as you’d like! :) We only ask that each “vehicle” takes roughly 2 hours to design. If you do a bunch of designs, you can present them any way you’d like.

  • Kyle Gallardo

    Thank you! I actually have about 4 right now, but due to my bad drawing skills, they took nowhere near 2 hours, lol, I’ll probably try to refine them before submitting them!

  • Toni

    I have a question about the prize for the non-US winner ( I suppose this means non-US resident?) .

    So the rule says that the non-US winner will get a copy of the book, does this mean that you can ship the copy to addresses outside the U.S?

  • Yes.

  • Toni


  • Blake L.

    Even though I already submitted, I finished mine up for the heck of it. Can be seen here!
