Whether you're an interior designer, a company CEO or just someone with a good imagination, you can enter to win the "Amanda: Put Your Back Into It" contest.

The winning designer will receive a trip to Miami Beach for the HD Boutique Exposition and Conference on September 18-19, 2007. Prize includes airfare, two nights' lodging and paid entrance to the Expo. Two runners-up will each receive a chair incorporating their design!
