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).

Threadless’s Over It design contest

There are layers to this thing in Threadless‘s new Over It design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Who says the art of photography and illustration need to be separate things?
Get all over this challenge and mix traditional art with 21st century art by drawing, painting, or sketching over a photo. From Snapchat filters to Instagram story stickers, we all put art over our photos without even realizing it. Now make us see reality through YOUR artistic lens! Break out the tablet or paintbrushes, channel your inner Creative Director, and create a drawn-over photo that’s worthy of a magazine cover.

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, go draw all over one and make it worth a million. (PS: The photos you draw over must be public domain/free for use or original photography only. So grab a selfie stick or those old Polaroids from your attic and get creative!)

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

Threadless’s Digital Cross Stitch design contest

Threadless takes an old-fashioned art style and updates it with their new Digital Cross Stitch design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Get crafty. Bring the classic art of Cross Stitch into the modern age by creating a digital Cross Stitch design! In case you’re not up to speed on your arts and crafts, Cross Stitching is a form of embroidery where images are created using X-shaped stitches…think of it like the original version of pixels making up an image. And we want you to make your own! Perhaps it’s a cute and classic design your grandma would be proud of. Or perhaps it’s dropping an F-bomb in an oh-so-fancy way.

This contest opens to entries on May 11th, 2018 and ends on May 25th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 5/11/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Travel design contest

Threadless is really going places with their new Travel design competition. But before you take off, here’s what they’re looking for…

Sometimes you just gotta pack your bags and go, go, go. Create a design that embodies the traveling spirit. Where in the world do you want to go? On a road trip? Up to the mountains? Down by the sea? Find the travel vibes that speak to you and design a wanderlusty piece of art that embodies them. Drop a #pin, throw a dart at a map, spin a globe and pick a place at random – you have the whole globe (nay, the whole universe) to mentally trot!

This contest opens to entries on May 4th, 2018 and ends on May 18th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 5/4/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Hats 2 design contest

Heads up, Threadless‘s latest design competition is looking for Hats! This is a sequel to a previously successful hat design contest, so you can check out the catalog to see what has been chosen in the past. Here’s what they’re looking for this time…

From cold weather beanies to caps throwing some summer shade, create a hat to top off any outfit. Design a piece of art that would look amazing on everything from beanies to dad hats to snapbacks. Dabble in minimal logo design, some hand lettering that would make for a fine embroidered slogan, or an eye-catching emblem that can distract from any bad hair day in style. We know you’ve got something up your sleeve worthy of tipping a hat at. Now put on your thinking cap and get to it!

This contest opens to entries on April 25th, 2018 and ends on May 11th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 4/25/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
