Just like the title says. Here's the news post verbatim:

Think you can improve on Optimus Prime? Then put your pencil where your vocal processor is!
USA TODAY wants you to design us a brand-new Transformer. Show us your idea in both pre- and post-transformation mode and tell us whether your creation is an Autobot or Decepticon and what it does. (For instance, check out Gannettron, an everyday USA TODAY newspaper box that morphs into a robot specializing in communications and news distribution via network satellite.)

Submissions are due June 18. You'll be able to view and vote for the finalists June 22, and the winner will be interviewed and have their design displayed in our June 26 print edition.

Technical specs: You can design your Tranformer on paper or digitally, but please send us the result in a single, high-quality (200-DPI) .jpg or .gif file. You must register for a free USA account in order to upload your design.

Y'know, I think this is a good opportunity. If memory serves me, Michael Bay saw some fan-art for a constructicon, bought the design and used it in ROTF. The giant green dump-truck one...with the tires resting on the shoulders. You know who I mean.

i ain't gonna do this. i don't believe in this since it's just a case of the producers deciding. what a fix. anyway, i hope good luck to anyone who does do this. maybe if you design it right, you could have your designs in transformers 3.
