It's time for our next deviantWEAR Design Challenge, and this one is a little different. Writers, you play a crucial role! We're calling on deviants to create an original phrase, statement, or saying and transform these writings into an artistic and unique t-shirt design. Entries should display an imaginative phrase, expression, or statement as well as a beautiful presentation of the words in a "Design Typography" style.

We are not looking for famous quotes by historical figures, fictional characters, famous poets, and the like. Instead, we are excited to see designs and phrases in your very own words. So let your creative juices flow and share your inspiring words with the world! A picture tells a thousand words, but your typographical design for the "Original Quotes" entry will tell us even more!

:star: Participation is easy!


You come up with potential designs for our deviantWEAR t-shirts.

Post entries to the design challenge.

Deviants vote on their favorite designs.

Judges choose 3 winning designs: 2 designs based on the highest-voted submissions and 1 design from ALL of the Entries to the Challenge.

Artists of the winning submissions get cash and their designs printed on t-shirts and sold in deviantWEAR shop!

For more inspiration on the deviantWEAR Design Challenge, check out the “Original Quotes” Challenge Category!

:star: Prizes, prizes, prizes!


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. You could find your “Original Quotes” design emblazoned on someone’s shirt out in the wild someday.

:star: Not a designer?


If you’re not interested in entering, you still have a chance to make an impact and determine the future of deviantWEAR's designs without being a designer.  All throughout the Design Challenge, keep an eye on the “Original Quotes” Category.  If you see a design that would make a great shirt, click "I’d Wear This" on the deviation to cast your vote for the entry. View the entries!

:star: Worried about cheaters?


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.  We will also review ALL entries to ensure they qualify. Additionally, 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. Then, our panel of experts will pick two of the most inspiring phrases and best typographically designed “Original Quotes” t-shirts to produce, along with an additional finalist that will be selected from all of the entries to the Challenge.

But hurry! The deadline for entries is May 15, 2012, and voting ends on May 22, 2012. Submit your designs and cast your votes now!

:megaphone: Don't delay!


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

When do we get to hear the results of this, please? It's been a couple weeks since the close of voting... I want to know if I need to go start a cafepress.com account or not to distribute my shirt. :D

Does it normally take this long? I am guessing maybe they are verifying each quote and font?

Verification of each quote is taking longer on this challenge than it does for verifying images. Sorry for the delay but +Watch deviantwear.deviantart.com to get notified of the journal entry that will announce the Finalists!

Strange...my original design (removed for non-typographical design) just turned up in a search of the entries. It wouldn't have won because of it, but it's cool to see the original design up again ;)

Everyone will get a notification and not just the semi-finalists. Even if you didn't participate there would be a Notice announcing a journal entry containing the semi-finalists, just like they have done will all the other deviantWEAR contests :)

Hoping bad to make it at least to the semi round. It would be so nice to actually win one of these contests or at least place for once. If you all want to check mine out go ahead it's "Never Ever Give Up..." and it's not like you can vote any more, but I'm very proud of it.

Does anyone know when the winners will be announed? I know no one probably knows, but has anyone entered a DA contest before and do you know how long they normally wait after voting ends before they reveal the winners? I've never entered a competition on DA before ^^;

For the last contest voting ended on April 13 and the semi finalists were announced on April 30 and the winners on May 24 (yesterday). So I think at least a month until we know the winners :/

It usually takes a couple of weeks. It probably depends on the amount of entries they have, the originality of the quote or if graphics were included (which alot of entries have) so we just all have to be patient until we get the notification that the finalists have been announced :D

Kymira12 Featured By Owner May 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
In a couple weeks or even this week. There's no definite time that they have announced so we just need to be patient. It may take a bit longer since they need to check the originality of the quotes and whether the fonts are licensed or not. All we can do is wait until we get the notification :shrug:
