Threadless’s Modern Still Life design contest

Get inspired by the style of classic paintings in Threadless‘s new Modern Still Life design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

In a world that never sits still anymore, we could all use some still life vibes… with a twist! For this challenge, mash up this classic art form with the modern objects that have taken over our world. Still life is all about capturing the quiet stillness of everyday objects put together just right. Take this age-old concept and recreate it using the items we see and use on the daily: touchscreen phones, tablets, laptops, comics, etc. Recreate a famous still life image, or create your own from scratch.

This contest opens to entries on August 17th, 2018 and ends on August 31st, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s One Panel design contest

Comic-style storytelling is in the spotlight with Threadless‘s new One Panel design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Got something witty to say? Say it in one panel! For this challenge, create a comic or cartoon that tells a great story in just one visual moment. If brevity is the soul of wit, a single panel is all you need for a comic that’s full of awesomeness. Flex your comedic muscle and make a funny, brief comic that taps right into our funny bone. Create a cartoon that makes the viewer think. Or perhaps you’ll cue a world of existential thinking in just a single image.

If you’ve ever dreamed of creating your own Sunday comics, now’s your chance. Channel your inner cartoonist and give ’em something to think about in one panel.

This contest opens to entries on August 10th, 2018 and ends on August 24th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Culture Jamming design contest

Threadless is seeking designs that make a statement in their new Culture Jamming design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

For this challenge, challenge the mass media mainstream machine through design. Culture Jamming is all about fighting big business with big idea designs and statements; disrupt the mainstream & political messages, flip that “Like” thumb’s up into a flippin’ the bird icon. Commit “Brandalism” by using the images of consumer culture and the mass media – cameras, billboards, barcodes, #hashtags, “Thank You!” plastic bags, etc. – to comment on consumerism in a satirical fashion. Use your design skills to subvert, critique, and give your art a voice and a purpose!

This contest opens to entries on August 3rd, 2018 and ends on August 17th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Primary Colors design contest

Threadless gets back to basics with their new Primary Colors design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Time to celebrate the three colors that make everything possible: Red, Yellow, & Blue (+Black)! Create a design with the primary goal (get it?) of celebrating the big three. After all, without them would Keith Haring’s art have the same bright vibes? Would pop art lose some of its pop? Would Piet Mondrian have EVER picked up a paintbrush? It can be minimal, maximal, hand lettering, cartoonish, abstract a la Mondrian, anthropomorphizing these colors – whatever you like! It just must feature Red, Yellow, and Blue and ONLY these three (…+Black & White).

This contest opens to entries on July 27th, 2018 and ends on August 10th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Shred design contest

Board sports of all sorts are the focus of attention in Threadless‘s new Shred design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

From the asphalt to the break, skate and surf culture has left an indelible stamp on everything from fashion to language to design. For this challenge, we want you to channel the aggro, gnarly, kinetic energy and independence that both surf and skate culture present.

These countercultures are connected by more than just the surf pipeline and the skate pipeline. With striking iconography that even non-skaters can recognize and vibe, the art of both of these subcultures embraces free thinking, edginess, and is always memorable. Hang loose and make a design to stand among the greats.

This contest opens to entries on July 20th, 2018 and ends on August 3rd, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash with additional prizing announced on 7/20/18. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Villains design contest

Threadless turns to the dark side for their new Villains design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Sometimes to create a really good design, you gotta go bad. And for our Villains Challenge, we want you to create a design most foul! Get in touch with your dastardly little heart and put your evil artistic plot into action. Think back to your favorite baddies from movies, cartoons, comics, etc. and channel what you loved (or loved to hate) about their dastardly deeds into a unique and villainous original design all your own. It can be funny, it can be dark, it can be a mix of the two – the world is yours…TO RULE!

This contest ends on July 20th, 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).
