Writers and designers, you really rocked your words this time around! The following original phrase designs made the list of top 50 and are all semi-finalists! Thank you for taking the written word and transforming it into designs that are verbally and artistically unique, fun, wearable and original. 

Once the judges make their tough decisions, there will be a total of three finalists selected. Two designs will be selected from the 50 Semi-Finalists and one design will be chosen from the entire pool of entries. Three finalists will each receive $1,500 USD and 20 units of their T-Shirt to distribute amongst friends and family. Plus, each winning design will be sold in the deviantART T-Shirts & Gear Shop! 


Here are your top-voted Semi-Finalists:

A quick note: These entries are the top 50 most voted for, qualified entries.  Some top-voted entries have been disqualified because they did not adhere to the rules or contained unlicensed third party content.  Additionally, there were several designers who had multiple entries in the top 50 most voted and as stated in the Official Terms, only one design per designer is allowed to be in the Semi-Final judging round.  Where this occurred, the highest voted entry appears in this semi-finalist pool.

Congratulations to all the semi-finalists, and good luck in the final round!

digital artist use stock image all the time ..it's allowed to them to use it as a reference although i think it's a simple shape of a dove ..anybody can draw it but the the great thing is how he used typography to let you feel it's 3D object ...really great job
if you have time check out my Tshirt and tell me what do you think :)[link]

Rules state...May not contain any stock images unless it is stock imagery you yourself have created on your own. Appears more than used as a reference.

he didn't use the actual image if that what you mean but again i think it could be any simple shape of dove that will came to you when you think of "dove" ..we don't know if he really use it or not

Funny how *most* of the designs are just blah, and a couple of the quotes aren't original. Too bad most of these guys are popular, so they get more votes.

There will be 1 judge-picked winner.
Does that mean we, who didn't make it through the semifinals, still have a chance?

I think yes. that's how I understood that too. The judges will pick 1 from ALL the entries. Which means, that 1 person, who's NOT in the semis, still has a chance too :D
