Thumbs up T-Shirt Design Contest: T-ShirtForums.com 5th Year Anniversary Extravaganza - w/prizes!

T-ShirtForums.com officially launched on April 4, 2005.

Now in our fifth year, we are the largest (and friendliest ) t-shirt industry forum with a great community of helpful members!

This time last year, we had just over 71,000 members. Now we have over 100,000 t-shirt experts, printers, manufacturers, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts all sharing, learning and networking about our great industry.

Anniversary time can only mean one thing...a T-Shirt Design Contest Extravaganza!

Last year's design contest yielded a super cool all over print design screen printed on high quality fashion t-shirts from Bare Apparel. Let's see if we can top the number of great entries we see this year.


This year we crowdsourced the design theme and surveyed the T-ShirtForums community to see what the design theme and prizes should be.



By popular vote, this year's contest theme is: 5
(the number five to celebrate our 5 year anniversary)



Your t-shirt design mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a t-shirt design about the number "5"

Take any type of interpretation on "5" that you like. Just remember you're designing a t-shirt that you think people would want to wear

The designs will be voted on anonymously by the community and the winning design will printed up and given away as thank you gifts to the members of our great T-ShirtForums community who have X number of posts (to be defined later).

Why should you send in a design? For the prizes of course


Along with the customary super mega awesome bragging rights that are bestowed upon you, the winning t-shirt designer will receive:

EVEN MORE PRIZES TO BE ADDED LATER STAY TUNED




First Place Design will receive:


  • 5 T-Shirts With the Winning Design
  • A unique forum avatar color of their choice
Second Place Design (second highest number of votes) will receive:


Third Place Design (third highest number of votes) will receive:


All qualified entries may receive some type of cool consolation prize including a free t-shirt of the winning design and some other fun stuff
WE ARE ACCEPTING MORE PRIZE SPONSORS FOR THIS CONTEST. IF YOUR COMPANY WOULD LIKE TO DONATE A PRIZE FOR THIS CONTEST IN EXCHANGE FOR EXPOSURE ON THE SITE, PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR MORE INFO.
Contest Rules:
--You can discuss the contest here.

  1. Have Fun!
  2. The T-ShirtForums logo should NOT be used in the design The design should appeal to a wide audience, not just t-shirtforums.com members
  3. Don't limit yourself to the design placement or size on the shirt. All over, over sized, wrap around, standard placement, small size will all be considered. If your design wins, we'll figure out a way to get it printed (and document the process here to help others)
  4. As the designer, you get to decide the color of the t-shirt the design looks best in.
  5. You need to have made at least 5 posts in the forum in order to be eligible to submit a design.
  6. NEW: Design can have as many colors as you'd like. We'll choose the best printing method that will best reproduce the winning design!
  7. Contest Entry Deadline will be: May 31 2010 11:59:59 PM PST
  8. Entries will be voted on anonymously by fellow forum members for 2 weeks after the contest. Depending on the number of entrants, there may be 2 rounds of voting.

    T-ShirtForums T-Shirt Design Extravaganza 5 Entry Form
  10. The winning design will be the one with the most amount of votes, with the final decision being made by your's truly (like last year, it will probably be the design with the most votes that gets chosen).
  11. Limit one entry per member
  12. Winning design will be printed on a limited number of high quality t-shirts and given away to T-ShirtForums.com members with X number of posts (to be defined later )
