DeviantWEAR's Design Battle is back and this year is shaping up to be the best battle yet! We're opening up the submission requirements to give you total freedom in your designs and you don't even have to use dA branding if you think you have a better idea for a shirt that promotes the community.
Designers, this is your opportunity to have your work seen and worn by artists, art enthusiasts, and t-shirt lovers from around the world. If you're not a designer, you can still participate in the deviantWEAR Design Battle by supporting the designs you like best! It's a win, win. There's something for everyone.
We challenge you to design a shirt that best promotes the deviantART community.
The submission category will be open from March 5th to March 31st for contest entries. Submit through the links below. Please see the Official Rules.
Semi-finalists will be selected by full-time deviantART staff based on quality of design, likely sales potential, artistic quality, and creative interpretation of the task.
The 20 semi-finalists will be arranged in a collection hosted on the deviantWEAR.deviantart.com Profile Page on or before April 5th. It's then up to you, the community, to help decide who the ultimate winners will be. Multiple shirts may be chosen! Artists are encouraged to promote their contest entry once the collections go up, but any obvious attempts at generating false feedback will be disqualified. Judges will only consider comments made during a 14 day voting period.
Our panel of judges will evaluate your feedback and use favorites, pageviews, and comments to help select at least one winner in each category.
See Official Rules for details.
There will be at least one winner selected from all eligible entries, possibly more depending on feedback from our judges and the community. Each winner will receive, guaranteed, $1000 cash for his/her artist royalties on the sale of the shirt with more coming if we sell more; a one year deviantART Premium Membership; and their choice of bags: either the dA Pro Camera Bag, the Laptop Messenger Bag, or the deviantART Artist's Bag; and 5 shirts of his/her own winning design. Winning shirt designs will be released for sale in the deviantWEAR shop shortly after the contest wraps up.
All semi-finalists will be awarded a 1 month deviantART Premium Membership!See Official Rules for details.
