Mythical Creatures Design Challenge!

Tue Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM

Remember reading about Greek and Roman mythology in school? What about the folklore you’ve heard while camping or during bedtime stories? We’re challenging you to harness those tales of old and make a design for a t-shirt featuring mythical creatures! 

Think about fantastical beasts renowned in folklore and myth -- unicorns, dragons, and other mythical animals that you’ve seen in films or books. Now, get inspired by those creatures and let’s see something awesome! 

:wizardhat: Participation is easy!
  • You come up with potential designs for our deviantART t-shirts.
  • Deviants vote on their favorite designs.
  • Judges choose 2 designs based on the highest-voted submissions.
  • Artists of the winning submissions get cash and their designs printed on t-shirts for all to see!
This time around, we’re challenging you to design a t-shirt inspired by the world of fantasy. Entries should display an original image or images featuring a mythical creature or creatures. For more inspiration on the deviantART Design Challenge, check out the Mythical Creatures category!

Like the last challenge, 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 25, 2012!

:wizardhat: Prizes, prizes, prizes!

Two 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 the deviantART T-Shirts and Gear Shop. You could find your mythically inspired design printed on someone’s shirt out in the world someday.

:wizardhat: Not a designer?

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. All throughout the Design Challenge, keep an eye on the Mythical Creatures category. We’ll show you an assortment for you to browse through the submitted designs.

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. View the entries right now!

:wizardhat: 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. The 100 designs receiving the most votes will move to the final judging round, where our panel of experts will pick three of the most creative, original and best Mythical Creatures inspired t-shirts to produce. 

But hurry! The deadline for entries is July 24, 2012. Voting begins on July 25, 2012 and ends on July 31, 2012. Submit your designs and cast your votes now!

:wizardhat: Don’t delay!

Click here to get started! And be sure to read the Official Terms for all the technical details.

Unleash your mythical creatures and turn them into an original t-shirt design!

Challenge your imagination to reach fantastical heights for the chance to win very real cash and prizes! Our Mythical Creatures T-Shirt Design Challenge is open to all deviants with a flair for fantasy and whimsy. But hurry -- the last day to submit is July 24, 2012!
