Wami Swag’s Tournament rules update

Great news from Wami Swag this week, who are adjusting the way their tournament works. While previously the contest’s winners were decided by a fan vote, they’ve decided to also take other important factors into consideration in the future, like social media shares, a sales multiplier, and even staff favorites.

These changes (and some enhanced fraud detection) prevent fake votes from swaying things, and help the site to better identify marketable, original designs. Read all about it in Wami Swag’s Facebook post.

WAMI Swag’s Life’s a Beach

Life’s a Beach by Boredtodeath is my favorite recent WAMI Swag winner, a design timed perfectly for summer that charms the viewer with a lot of silly and intriguing details. While his head may hover freely without a neck, he’s still equipped with an inflatable ring for the ocean. And he may not have a stomach, but that’s no reason to skip having a pair of popsicles on a hot summer day. My favorite moment, though, has got to be the little graffiti crown that enhances one of the ice creams- it’s a good way to help each feel more unique, despite their identical faces. The gradient sky background is another strong choice, helping the lightly colored bones of the skeleton to pop on the white shirt while keeping the ink light (all the better for wearing in hot weather). Solid design work.

Winners at WAMI Swag will earn a cash prize (amount varies based on contest entered). Any designs sold on WAMI Swag also earn the artist 20% of each sale.
