It has been said that music is the universal language that transcends boundaries and brings people together all over the world. Our challenge to you is to create a design for a T-Shirt that is inspired by music! Tune in, turn up the volume, and explore all the octaves. Designing never sounded so good!
Participation is easy!
- You come up with potential designs for our deviantART T-Shirts.
- Deviants vote on their favorite designs.
- Judges choose three designs from the highest-voted submissions.
- Artists of the winning submissions get cash and their designs printed on T-Shirts for all to see and buy!
Entries should display an original image or images that show music through art. Use notes, instruments, or musicians -- anything that shows what music means to you. For more inspiration on the deviantART Design Challenge, check out the Musically Inspired creative pack
This time we’re trying something new. We will allow a two-week period for you to submit your designs before we open the voting. Voting will last for one week only! So don’t forget to submit your work and then remind your friends to vote starting July 6, 2012!
Prizes, prizes, prizes!
Three winners will be selected! Each winner receives $1,500 cash and 20 T-Shirts with their winning design! Plus, each of the winning designs will be sold in the deviantART shop.
Not a designer?
You can vote! Just like the last Design Challenge, you still have a chance to make an impact and determine the future of deviantART’s designs without being a designer by voting. All throughout the Design Challenge keep an eye on the Music Category
If you see a design that would make a great shirt, click “I Want This” on the deviation to cast your vote for the entry. Voting will officially open on July 6th, 2012, so check the category then to make your voice heard. View the entries right now
Worried about cheaters?
Don’t worry. 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. Some designs are disqualified for not following the rules. The 100 qualifying designs receiving the most votes will move to the final judging round, where our panel of experts will pick three winners.
Hurry! The deadline for entries is July 5, 2012 and voting ends on July 12, 2012. Submit your designs now and start casting your votes on July 6, 2012!
