deviantWEAR Design Challenge

Thu Oct 13, 2011, 11:27 AM
:megaphone: New! Introducing the deviantWEAR Design Challenge!

Have you ever wanted to be a famous shirt designer? Perhaps you've wanted to be the devil wearing Prada, approving only the hottest styles? There's something for everyone in our new deviantWEAR Design Challenge!

The concept is simple: we give you a challenge, you create the design, deviants vote, and the winners get paid if their designs are chosen by the judging panel.

:bulletgreen: Have some mad design skills?
Our first challenge is to design deviantART's newest logo shirt. Using the assets and template provided at the Challenge Page, create a shirt focused around deviantART's logo. Three finalists will be selected -- each will receive $1500 cash and 25 units of their own shirt design. Plus, their winning design will be sold in the deviantART Shop!

Already have a great idea or want additional information? Visit the Challenge Page and expand the "Learn More" button to find out all the juicy details.

:bulletgreen: Not a designer? That's cool. Rock the vote!
We want you to have a say in which designs are the most attractive and that's why we're introducing a brand new voting system. Vote for your favorite designs from the category gallery view by clicking the "I would wear this" button or vote directly from the deviation page. The top 50 qualified voter-chosen pieces will go to the final judging process.

:bulletgreen: How does voting work?
You can only vote once for an entry and we will be keeping a sharp eye out for fraudsters. Also, just because a design has the most votes, doesn't mean it automatically wins. The 50 qualified designs with the most votes will move to the final judging round, where our panel of experts will pick the three hottest tees on the basis of how stylin' they are.

:bulletgreen: Not your type of challenge? That's cool too.
This is just the first in many design challenges we aim to host. Help us start this new venture right with some awesome designs and thoughtful voting!

:bulletred: Designers, start your engines! Get creative and encourage your friends to vote.

:bulletred: Voters, prepare to pick your favorites! Only you can help us decide which will be our top choices. The power is yours!

Get started here. The deadline for entries is November 1, 2011, so act fast! :eager:

Read the Official Terms for all the technical details.

  • Listening to: Llamahog Sounds 2011
  • Reading: Gone with the Llamahog
  • Watching: A Llamahog Runs Through It
  • Playing: Whack a Mole
  • Eating: Tall and Medium Sized Grasses
  • Drinking: Llamanade

Two questions:

1. Does the winning artist get any profit from each shirt sold with their design on it?

2. Does the winning artist get credit for their design on the shirt?
For example, if Danny Tanner won would the shirt itself/ad for the shirt have his name/signature as the artist?

I read the terms...but still not quite sure.

I think the Selection Rule is somehow bad, as not everyone will surf through the all entries, therefore there will be entries that are ignored, no matter how bad or good they are.
Could you (deviantArt) have any solution to make sure that no good (or equally good) entries are ignored? Meanwhile some not-as-good entries are voted a lot?

I have a question. Is it ok to refer to reference stock? Not use them in your picture but just refer to them if you're drawing traditionally, lets say. No tracing

When you you say you can use only 2 prints areas, you mean "front and back" or "back and side". Can you create multiple entries with different color tshirts? Or does that count as too many entries?

About the way you're going to select the winners: That seems unfair for newer deviants who don't have a broad circle of friends and who didn't know from the beginning about GetWatchers. Through GetWatchers "older" deviants in this contest got many views and votes, many more than deviants who are new at DA.

for me they evaluate every design, because a lot have a lot of votes but are not funtional design for print and sell, and they select the 50 design with more votes that meet the requirements, it makes sense because it could well be the 50 most voted designs and none of those 50 serves or does not meet the requirements or violates any copywrite, I imagine they are selecting the 50 top rated designs who have met all and have more votes, but has already spent more than a week... 1 december are very close

You probably won't have to since, according to the official terms:
"After manufacture, each Finalist will receive 25 T-shirts, which the Finalist may give or sell to others at his or her option."

This was found in the Official Terms
•The Semi-Finalists will be presented to the deviantART community and in the event a Semi-Finalist is removed as a result of valid objections to its qualifications, the next Entry in line (e.g.: the 51st ranking Entry) will become a Semi-Finalist;
•The staff judges may consider, but need not consider the number of votes received by a Semi-Finalist in determining Finalists.
•The three Finalists will be announced and their Entries will be made available on T-shirts through the deviantWEAR store by December 1, 2011.

This means for sure they will tell us the top 50 more than likely a week+- before Dec 1st to give us the right to give "valid objections" meaning telling them if a entry that they chose for the top 50 is in clear violation to the rules, for an example one that used copyrighted material and/or someone else's art work or if it was used in another contest. It also is stating that just because an entry has tons of votes does not mean they will choose it, it was just to see what we think and maybe see what it was that so many liked still doesn't mean they will or can print it. This, I think, also means that they will be going through everyone's entries so keep your fingers and toes crossed they may choose yours. Also on Dec 1st or after check out the store and see who they chose for the final 3 after we told them if any were needing to be removed out of the 50 semi-finalists. Remember just because you don't like it or that you don't think theirs was better than the ones they chose doesn't validate a vote of removal. Good luck all and good luck DA lol.
