Cool T-Shirt Design Contest: T-ShirtForums.com 6th Year Anniversary Extravaganza - w/prizes!

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

Now in our sixth 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 100,000 members. Now we have over 139,722 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 4 color water based ink screen printed "5" themed design on high quality fashion t-shirts printed by @Dan K and the guys at Forward Printing. The design from @Showdown Joel also won 3rd place in the Impressions Magazine Impressions Awards for Outstanding Design! Let's see if we can top the number of great entries we see this year.


As many of you know, I love good food (especially a great hamburger ), so this year's t-shirt design theme is for the fellow food lovers out there!




This year's contest theme is: FOOD



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

Take any type of interpretation on "food" 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).
This year we will be donating 100% of the proceeds of the sale of any of the extra t-shirts we print up to a local non-profit food bank. That means if the extra t-shirts end up selling for $15 each and it costs $3 to ship, $12 from each sale will be donated to a local food bank charity.



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:

  • $150 USD Cash
  • 8 GB iPod Touch
  • A Free T-Shirt With The Winning Design

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

  • $100 USD Cash
  • An 8GB iPod Nano
  • A Free T-Shirt With the Winning Design

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 or name 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: July 15 2011 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.
  9. JPG/PNG/GIF previews/mockups should uploaded to:
    T-ShirtForums T-Shirt Design Extravaganza 6 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 )


    This year's design will also be made available for sale in our online store to members who don't get a free one (and anybody else that digs the design). 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this year's design will be donated to a local food bank charity.

  13. To enter, please submit your design on a t-shirt mockup template and one version of the design by itself.

    I highly encourage all entrants to use the free trial subscription to ShirtMockup Pro to submit their mockup of the design on a t-shirt. It's quick and easy way to put a picture of your design on a blank t-shirt template. That way, all the entries will be as uniform as possible during the voting/judging process It's not required, but it's a free trial and it would be really helpful.

    CHECK OUT THIS BLOG POST FOR A LIST OF PLACES WHERE YOU CAN DOWNLOAD FREE (and paid) MOCKUP TEMPLATES: Huge Collection of T-Shirt Design Mockup Templates
    Your design entry should inlcude:
    • A JPG or PNG of just the design image
    • A JPG or PNG of the design placed on the t-shirt template to show the design placement, size, and garment color.
Entries should be sent as JPG/PNG/GIF previews/mockups and uploaded to: T-ShirtForums T-Shirt Design Extravaganza 6 Entry Form

Please TITLE YOUR ENTRY and include your forum username with your entry (although it will be kept private during the voting)

Keep the source vector/psd/eps/ai/cdr/high resolution file on your computer until the winner is named.

All submitted entries remain the intellectual property of the designer. The designer will retain ownership and copyright of the winning design, however T-ShirtForums.com will have exclusive rights to printing and giving away/selling the winning design on t-shirts as well as using the image for promotional purposes regarding the shirt and contest.
