New T-Shirt Competition: Design By Humans

Yes, another competition. As the t-shirt design competition market gets increasingly saturated, how does a new competition site stand out from the crowd?

With $5000, my friend. That’s right, Design By Humans is launching with a $5000 grand prize. And already, the work being submitted is more than worthy of such a prize. A quick glance through their already stocked store (my favorite shirt, Black Market, is pictured above) lets you know that DBH plans to be the go-to site for tees that could pass as fine art.

Their plan to attract talent includes a multi-tier design competition: Each weekday, a shirt is selected as Shirt of the Day, earning the designer $500 cash and $250 in store credit. At the end of the week, one of the Shirt of the Day winners will be designated Shirt of the Week, winning the designer an additional $1000 cash. Monthly, a Shirt of the Week Winner will rise to become Shirt of the Month (with a prize of another $1500 cash and $250 credit). Which, added together, is quite a windfall!

Another feature that is sure to attract artists is DBH’s Mixed Media template- you can specify such decadent features as embroidery, appliqué, foil and much, much more.

Entries to the $5000 contest must be submitted before August 10th, 2007. Designs submitted after that date are eligible for the site’s other prizes, with an upper limit of $3500. There are already a bunch of truly great shirts in the running (my favorite, Robit, is pictured below), so if you want a chance at that $5000 it’s probably best to submit your work soon!
