Zip It
Contest Directions: April 24 is the birthday of Gideon Sundbäck who invented the modern zipper as we know it. Sundbäck immigrated from Sweden to the US in 1905 at the age of 25. 12 years later he invented and patented the "Separable Fastener" (US Patent #1,219,881 issued in 1917). The name zipper was created in 1923 by B.F. Goodrich, who used the device on their new boots. Today, 95 years after its invention, the zipper is everywhere, in clothing, luggage and leather goods and countless other objects.
Photoshop some creative uses for the zipper. Try to include it in people, animals, and any products or objects you may think of. Paintings or works of art might use some zipping up too. Enter and win one for the zipper!
