Threadless’s Cryptozoology design contest

Unicorns, bigfoots, and sea monsters, oh my! Threadless’s Cryptozoology design contest is open to all kinds of artwork about unusual creatures. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Just because something hasn’t been scientifically proven to exist, doesn’t mean it doesn’t. Folklore tells tales of fabled creatures that lurk deep in the waters or shift like shadows in forgotten forests. Elusive to humans, these unbelievable beasts have captured our imagination. From Bigfoot and Nessie to the Chupacabra and Kraken, we can’t get enough of cryptids of all kinds.

We’re on the hunt for the most fantastical, legendary creature design in this cryptozoology challenge. Let’s prove once and for all these fabulous, supernatural animals exist. Craft designs inspired by unknown entities awaiting discovery or create new monsters of your own making. Only brave believers will succeed, don’t let doubters get you down. The search is on!

This contest opens to entries on August 16th and ends on August 30th 2019. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Sass design contest

Clever wordplay and snarky imagery might serve you well in Threadless‘s new Sass design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Did you mouth off to the principal in high school or reply with cheeky remarks to your mom’s reminders about doing chores? Were you yelled at for inciting unrest with impertinent comments to your siblings in the back seat during road trips? Finally, you’ll be rewarded for your insolence. Your quippy backtalk will serve you well in this saucy challenge.

We charge you to put your money where your mouth is and make some super sassy designs. Take those rude responses, witty retorts, and over-the-top eye rolls and turn them into graphic-art gold.

Threadless’s The 3rd Dimension design contest

Flat is boring in Threadless‘s new The 3rd Dimension design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Three-dimensional space is the geometrical setting in which three parameters—like depth, width, and height—are used to determine the position of something. All matter in the physical universe, not considering time, exists in this three-parameter model. So whether you’re describing a point with three coordinates plotted on x, y, and z axes or measuring the volume of a sphere, you’re expressing the world as we experience it.

Say goodbye to flat 2D; we’re getting deep in this 3D design challenge. Math majors, number novices, and digital art dabblers, let’s level up from lines and squares. Craft your best cubes, spheres, and pyramids or plot away with the Cartesian coordinate system, but show us the depth of your 3D designs. Rendering some spectacular scenes that would make Pixar proud? We want it all! Give us your three-dimensionally inspired, digital art doozies.

This contest opens to entries on August 2nd and ends on August 16th, 2019. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Oceanography design contest

Threadless‘s new Oceanography design contest seems likely to go swimmingly. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Fathoms beneath the sea’s surface, there’s a vast, uncharted terrain known only to the creatures who live there and oceanographers. These sea-studying scientists deep dive on the daily to learn more about marine life, ocean circulation, and plate tectonics and seafloor geography. From fish big and small, coral, and crustaceans to things with tentacles, teeth or tails, the ocean’s flush with ethereal organisms and surprising discoveries.

Put on your wetsuit, marine explorers, and take the plunge for our oceanography-inspired design challenge. We want to see your salty, seaworthy designs, whether they channel the Little Mermaid or Aquaman. Plot your revenge on the mythical jaguar shark, share blueprints for the lost city of Atlantis, find Nemo or hunt the great white in this briny competition for sailors and scientists. Submit your designs, and make a splash!

This contest opens to entries on July 26th and ends on August 9th, 2019. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Industrial design contest

Think like a machine for Threadless‘s new Industrial design competition! Here’s what they’re looking for…

From warehouse districts billowing exhaust to steel skyscrapers, suspension bridges, and concrete galore, society grinds along with the advances afforded us by industry. The Industrial Revolution of the mid-seventeenth century forever changed urban life in the United States. Transitioning from hand production to machinery, cities embraced new manufacturing processes, harnessing steam and water power. The rise of the mechanized factory system fueled large-scale production and booming city centers blossomed across the nation.

Captains of commerce, we welcome your depictions of the city’s grittiest inner workings in this industrial design challenge. Show us how steaming vats of productivity, assembly lines, factory workers, and commerce of all kinds have shaped the efficient ways of our modern world. We want designs with moxie—spin those wheels and give us all you got.

This contest opens to entries on July 19th and ends on August 2nd, 2019. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Dinosaurs shirt design contest

Feeling prehistoric? Threadless‘s new Dinosaurs design competition is sure to be a blast from the very distant past. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Some had tiny arms and big hearts while others sported spikes, scales, long necks or wings. Dinosaurs may be extinct, but they still loom large in our imaginations. Who can forget a pack of velociraptors tearing apart a commercial kitchen in an attempt to feast on a pair of orphaned siblings? Or the dying words of Littlefoot’s mom, urging him to journey to the Great Valley and find his kind? Perhaps a classic scene of Godzilla laying waste to Tokyo comes to mind, or the early 90s TV series dreamed up by Jim Henson starring an anthropomorphic family of dinosaurs? (“Not the mama,” anyone?)

We welcome your take on the friendly or deadly, fossilized or fictional, large and in charge or tiny but terrifying. This design challenge is for paleontologists and artists alike: maybe you grew up reading picture books filled with dino taxonomies, digging for fossils in your backyard, and rocking a wide-brimmed field hat (even after it was cool). Maybe you proudly rep a slew of t-rex memes in sticker form on your laptop. This is your challenge. Give us your best dino designs, depicting your Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous or modern-day interpretations of prehistoric life.

This contest opens to entries on July 5th and ends on August 19th, 2019. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
