Threadless’s Blast From the Past design contest

Nostalgia is back in fashion with Threadless‘s new Blast from the Past design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

More often than not, we don’t actively think about nostalgia for it to strike us. No, we have nostalgia thrust upon us. Such is the idea of “a blast from the past”. Create a design that will transport all who view it to an earlier time. We all have things that take us back to a specific feeling, memory, or decade, whether it’s a time we lived through or an era we’re fascinated by. Opening up a time capsule that was buried in the ‘50s. Finding an old toy in your parents’ basement that you haven’t seen in YEARS. The packaging of your favorite snack when you were a kid, seeing “the one that got away” at a high school reunion, or opening up the ol’ yearbooks and remembering inside jokes you forgot about amidst all the “H.A.G.S!” messages. Sometimes, things that are universal are enough to spark specific memories in all of us. Now go create a design that acts as a mental time machine!

This contest opens to entries on June 29th, 2018 and ends on July 13th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless‘s new Shedd Aquarium design challenge is all about the ocean’s most famed predator, the shark. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Sharks have called our seas home for millions of years.

Together, we can help keep sharks swimming by protecting the marine areas where they live. Get inspired by these powerful predators and create a design worthy of their prowess. You can support Shedd Aquarium’s shark conservation and advocacy efforts in the Bahamas and around the world; all proceeds from each shirt will help us keep sharks swimming.

Threadless’s Internet 2.0 design contest

Let your imagination loose on the worldwide web for Threadless‘s new The Internet 2.0 design contest. Here’s what they’re looking for…

The Internet is strange. It’s not a real, tangible thing, and yet the impact it can have on our conversations, on our views, on our lives, is very #real. Take all the hours you spend on Internet deep dives and channel them into a design! Create an image about taking a mental health break from glowing screens and notifications, make a commentary about #FakeNews, about the strange YouTube rabbit holes we all fall into at 3 AM, about the videos of unusual animal friendships or kids falling down that we all share the heck out of, and more.

This contest opens to entries on June 22nd, 2018 and ends on July 6th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 6/22/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Miniatures design contest

Think small with Threadless‘s new Miniatures design contest! Here’s what they’re looking for…

With this challenge, thinking small IS thinking big. Designs don’t have to be giant to make a huge impact. That’s why we want you to create the next big tiny thing. Make a design inspired by all things miniature! Think of ideas that are small yet mighty, whatever that may mean to you! You can take this challenge literally and create a design that is actually very smol, or you can take it with a tiny grain of salt and run with it, embracing miniaturization, shrink rays, bringing kaiju-sized beasts down to the size of a kaiju toy, the works. Now show us a tiny idea with big potential!

This contest opens to entries on June 15th, 2018 and ends on June 29th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 6/15/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Seasons: Summer design contest

It’s beach season in Threadless‘s new Seasons: Summer design competition! Threadless wants to know what the season means to you, and here’s what they’re looking for…

Time to make every day feel like it’s summer break! Replace your swim cap with your thinking cap and create a design that’s got more summer vibes than a beach ball on the sand next to a tall glass of lemonade. What does summer mean to you? Freshly cut grass and sprinklers? Palm trees blowing in the wind against an orange sunset? Ice cream trucks and carnival food? Unfortunate tan lines? Make an image that will transport anyone to the ideal summer vacation every day of the year!

This season is, like, so hot right now. So break out the sunscreen, throw on the shades, and create something that channels the dog days of summer during every season.

This contest opens to entries on June 8th, 2018 and ends on June 22nd, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 6/8/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Typography design contest

Letterforms are the stars of Threadless‘s new Typography design competition, so here are some words about what they’re looking for…

The art of Typography is everywhere. From a can o’ SPAM to fancy lettering in your fave blog’s logo to, yes, even comic sans, it pays to be fond of fonts. And for this challenge, we want you to get creative with type! Channel the designer in you and focus on typography specifically – from the look of your letters down to the kerning in between each one. Vintage product labels, calligraphy quotes, type tees (ayyy!), newspaper fonts, classic logos, every corner of your favorite website – there are so many types of type to get inspired by.

This contest opens to entries on June 1st, 2018 and ends on June 15th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 6/1/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Dark Humor design contest

Threadless aims for a specific type of funny with their new Dark Humor design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

You gotta love dark humor. There’s something about being in that place where half of you is laughing and the other half is cringing. Dark humor can turn the scary into something to smile at (while also making you do a face/palm). That’s why for this challenge, we want you to create a design that pokes at the dark side of the funny bone. Make something that subverts horror, monsters, hauntings, etc. by adding a comical twist, a visual punchline. Fill the creepy alchemy jars in the recesses of our minds with candy and confetti.

Let the dark raven of humor pick at your right brain – come up with a design that’s equal parts creepy, beautiful, and LOL-worthy. (But, y’know, not TOO too dark. Let’s keep it fun!)

This contest opens to entries on May 25th, 2018 and ends on June 8th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 5/25/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
