So, I don't usually post about contests or challenges. Or Diet Coke for that matter. But this design challenge actually seems doable and fun. And if you win, you could have a nice wad of cash fed to your wallet, even if you're a runner up.
So, what's the low-down? I'm getting there.
From what I gather, all contestants submit their designs by May 31st. Those submissions then get reviewed by corporate, and the top 20 from the first round get featured on a voting website (I assume this is when you'd enlist your friends and family to repeatedly submit votes for your design). Finally (this is the best part), in the last round, the top ten ranked t-shirts from the previous round will be given to a panel of judges, including Rebecca Minkoff (!) to vote for the most winning t-shirt design.
I sort of rushed through the details, but a more thorough brief can be found here. The winner will also get flown to Nashville to meet Taylor Swift (...), and have his or her t-shirt sold at Target in the fall.
For all of you budding fashionistas, designers, and creative minds alike, I feel like this is an amazing opportunity. Talk about exposure!
This is the winning design from last year:
It's not rocket science, it's a t-shirt, right?
The deadline for entry is in two weeks, so you've got lots of time to think up some amazing, original, creative designs.
Let me know if you decide to enter. I would love to see what magic you've got hidden up your sleeve!
