OWC Goes to Space and Wants to Take You With!

The OWC Envoy Pro external SSD will be going into space – and returning – with a leading space exploration developer’s upcoming launch. OWC is holding a contest for creatives to submit their videos, songs, and images for consideration, for the chance to have that creative content included on the drive when it is sent into space.

Entrants are challenged to show the team at OWC what they’ve created. Participants can submit a video, a song, image(s), or any other type of content they have produced using an OWC product. Entries can be uploaded to Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram calling out @PoweredbyOWC and using #OWCInSpace in order for all content to be properly evaluated by the OWC team. Posts should mention which OWC product was used in the creative process. Winners will be contacted by DM, so be sure to follow @PoweredbyOWC on those platforms.

The contest will begin accepting submissions on August 10th and will do so through August 21st. All submissions will be evaluated by executive and creative team members at OWC. Ten grand prize winning entrants will be selected, uploaded onto the OWC Envoy Pro with Thunderbolt 3, and launched into orbit.


All winning submissions will receive a certificate of participation and a commemorative patch following the rocket launch and return. The top ten grand prize winning selected content providers will receive a specially engraved version of an OWC Envoy Pro drive, as well as a custom-designed patch commemorating the space travel and a certificate of participation following the rocket launch and return.

Contest Guidelines:

Contestants are asked to upload an original video or song between one to two minutes in length, or an image or multiple images. Show OWC your out-of-this-world work, and show the world why OWC solutions are the key to unlocking true creative potential. 

Guidelines for submission: all entries should be English-language content only, or if in another language, please use English subtitles. All voting results will be final, and the winners will be notified by DM, so be sure to follow @PoweredbyOWC on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram. Entering the contest is easy, just post content beginning August 10th.
