What comes to your mind when you think of monsters? Scary, threatening, ugly? Forget all your preconceived notions, and think… cute! In our latest deviantWEAR Design Challenge, we’re asking you to create an amazing t-shirt that features a monster of your own original design that’s quirky, cute, and all-around lovable. Unleash your beast – the cute version!
This time around, we're challenging you to design a Cute Monster t-shirt that represents the essence of "cute." Think of a design that is endearing, delightful, humorous, and charming. "Cute" is the anti-monster – something that brings a smile to your face. This contest is not about gore or macabre. If you saw a Cute Monster under your bed, you’d want to hug it instead of shrieking in terror. The adorable possibilities are endless!
For more inspiration on the deviantWEAR Design Challenge, check out the Cute Monsters Contest Category!
Three winners will be selected! Each winner receives $1,500 cash and 20 units of their t-shirt! Plus, each of the winning designs will be sold in deviantWEAR. Who knows? You may see your cuddly t-shirt worn by the masses.
Just like the last Design Challenge, you still have a chance to make an impact and determine the future of deviantWEAR's designs without being a designer. All throughout the Challenge, keep an eye on the Cute Monsters Contest Category. To keep things fair, we'll show you a random assortment for you to browse through the submitted designs.
If you see a design that would make a great shirt, click "I Would Wear This" on the deviation to cast your vote for the entry. View the entries!
Fret not. When the contest is over, deviantART will review the source of all entry data (including but not limited to username and IP data) for suspicious activity and remove fraudulent votes. Also, just because a design has the most votes doesn't mean it automatically wins. The 50 designs receiving the most votes will move to the final judging round, where our panel of experts will pick two of the most adorable Cute Monster t-shirt designs to produce. There will be one additional finalist selected from all of the entries to the Challenge, not just the semi-finalists.
But hurry! The deadline for entries is February 28, 2012, and voting ends on March 6, 2012. Submit your designs and cast your votes now!
