Help redesign LA's time travel store

This is kinda by definition the best design opportunity in history. The Echo Park Time Travel Mart, Los Angeles' first store devoted to the needs of time travelers (Wait, or is it the last store devoted to time travel? When time goes both ways this whole first/last thing gets so confusing) wants a new look for their front windows. Now it's going to be quite a challenge to come up with a store that sells replacement robot emotion chips, canned mammoth chunks, and ski Pangea posters. One that refuses to sell fire to any hominid who can't stand upright. One that sells Viking odorant. But it should would be fun to try.

Anyway, the Time Travel Mart folks really ARE looking for proposals to re-do their storefront and give it the perfect timeless time travel feel. The deadline for proposals is May 1st, which isn't a lot of time, unless of course you have access to time travel. In that case take all of the time you need. Here are all of the details, and a write-up about it from the folks at GOOD.

I don’t understand. Why do they need a contest deadline? Can’t they just go ahead a few months and see the winning new store look already installed?
