Threadless’s Surrealism 2 design contest

Threadless dives deep into a popular art style with their new Surrealism 2 design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Time to get weird. Dali & Magritte are great and all, but for this challenge? Think in terms of modern surrealism. Channel the weird art in the recesses of your mind; create something that subverts expectations and makes about as much sense as a dream does after you wake up. Fill lands of impossible geometry with strange characters going about their daily commute. Create a visually cacophonous pattern of dysmorphic townsfolk inhabiting an everyday setting, or fill a weird setting with regular dancing people. Imagine a normal family watching TV on the couch in an underwater world, or a landscape filled with limbs that exist on their own as normal beings.

This contest opens to entries on February 23rd, 2018 and ends on March 9th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash, with additional prizing to be announced on 2/23/18. Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
