Konica Minolta has launched a new website to help consumers find out all they need to know about the company's printers.

People logging on will now be able to find out easily where they can go to buy Konica Minolta printers, as well as find out about special offers and top printing tips from the experts.

UK residents can even upload images and be sent a print sample of their picture to show the quality of Konica Minolta printers.

To coincide with the launch of the new website, Konica Minolta is also launching the Get Yourself Noticed competition. Run in association with Marketing Week, ComputerArts and ComputerArts Projects, the competition aims to reveal the hidden talents of the graphic design industry, with the winner being launched into the media as the rising star of graphic design.

The competition is looking for entrants to predict the future style of graphic design in any printable way, asking them to consider how colour and definition would be used.

The winner will have their work displayed on central London billboards and in "big media publications".

For more details on the competition, head on over to the website - the deadline for entries is 12th September 2008.
