We had a lot of fun earlier today coming up with our “vision” for the next Mac operating system, OS X Lion-O.

It got us thinking. What do you think the perfect mascot for the next version of OS X would be?

So we’re having a Photoshop contest! Come up with a concept for the next version of OS X using a whole new mascot and we’ll give the top five winners a free copy of Photoshop Touch for the iPhone or iPad (your choice!).

And the grand prize winner? In addition to Photoshop Touch, the person who makes the best Photoshop will receive a copy of the real next version of OS X (when it comes out, that is!).

Here’s how to enter the contest!

1. Photoshop (or GIMP, or whatever) a new mascot for the next version of OS X. You can do it in the style of an ad, box art, keynote announcement, whatever. Serious or funny, it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s awesome!

2. Join The Cult Of Mac Flickr Group

3. Add your Photoshop to the Group Pool.

And that’s it! Next week, we’ll highlight some of the best entries, and declare winners, so open up that copy of Photoshop (or GIMP, or whatever) and get cracking! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
