I'd imagine they would contact you by viewing your past projects. Many big names are here on the forums scouring around up to whatever they are, so get your projects out there and hope for the best.

First, build an audience.... companies sponser people to get hits. If you come to the table with a thousand followers, you are more attractive to them.

Here's a nice guide: http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2007..._sponsorship/1

Sponsorships do like page hits, as well as a build that compliments their product.

When I started I started by emailing/hardcopy sending everyone in the industry. some bite but more just look over it,
The one thing they want is free advertising so if your going to the next big lan event bring your case, take lots of photos etc.
Also maybe make a website that has all your previous builds that way you can email them and show them your hit count. But going to conventions like PAx or lan events creates the opportunity to meet actual people who work for these companies.
Then you can bring a portfolio and meet their PR staff and hopefully get their contact info so you can reach them after the event/show.


Trust me it doesn't happen overnight and you need to build a fine relationship with these people, and once you grow that relationship they'll be sure to send you out one of the nicest products they have to offer in hopes that you'll find a way to use it.

^ thats how online blogs grow into websites like bit-tech/gizmodo/hardwarecanuks etc.

Also you don't want to be a sell-out. ex. MSI gave you one free board doesn't mean they'll do it again, so bad mouthing or becoming an MSI fanboy isn't going to increase your chances with ASUS or etc. Being unbiased with their products is the best.
(MSI and Asus are great companies btw)
