A Better Tomorrow Meets Art Bastard Contest

I haven’t blogged much about A Better Tomorrow, mainly because I don’t understand German, but I did think this would be of interest to the designers that read this blog. The German T-Shirt design competition site is having a special A Better Tomorrow Meets Art Bastard shirt contest that runs until May 25. Winner will receive 500 € cash and 100 buttons of featuring their design. I was just checking out A Better Tomorrow and they have some amazing tees, I will definitely be visiting that site more often!

The theme for this special contest with Art Bastard is “We Love Art”, which, seems general enough for you folks to come up with something amazingly cool. For those of you unfamiliar with Art Bastard, they are a website that feature urban contemporary art and culture – a site that’s definitely worth checking out. See below for official rules to the contest.

ShirtFight! Get Ready To Step In The Ring

Calling all designers – get ready for the newest tee design contest site to hit InternetLAND. The name of the site is ShirtFight and it was started by husband and wife duo looking to improve on the current crop of tee design competition sites. They’ve done their research and have also approached designers for their input as to what they would like to see in a competition site. Although the site is not officially open (they open on March 5), you can sign up to receive a 5 day advance notice of the first design challenge. 

Miss Etti, one part of the founding couple, sent me ShirtFight’s pledge to the tee design community:

  • We’re going to keep things fun, that’s important to us. We’re doing weekly themed competitions, and we’ll keep them interesting. And we aren’t just going to throw cash at the winner and call it a day…that’s boring! I can’t give you any details just yet (it’s hush hush), but we have a lot of great ideas to put a smile on the faces of our artists and community members every day.
  • We’ll always keep our community priority #1. We’re nothing without you guys! That’s why we’re going to keep the lines of communication open, constantly ask for your opinions and feedback, and do what we can to make this the most artist-focused t-shirt design competition site out there!
  • We want to keep the individuality and the uniqueness for our community (the artists *and* the customers)…and to achieve that we’re never going to carry more than 21 shirts at any given time. It drives me nuts to see hundreds of pages of shirts on a site…it’s like being lost in a sea of tees! By showcasing the very best designs, we get to focus everyone’s attention to the talents of the artist. Plus, if we only carry a select number of designs at a time, this eliminates the “Damn, everyone is wearing a Threadless t-shirt!” syndrome.

The weekly cash prize will be $500, but in celebration of their launch, the first contest will be two weeks long with the winner receiving $2009 cash! Pretty awesome, eh! And think about it, your chances to win at ShirtFight might be better than at some of the more crowded and established competition sites. Why not try ShirtFight out when it opens on March 5 – are you up for a good fight?
