    GBAtemp T-Shirt Design Competition!
    In partnership with ShopTemp.com
    GBAtemp and ShopTemp are very proud to announce the opening of our first t-shirt design competition!
    This competition will allow you, members of the GBAtemp community, to design your own GBAtemp-themed t-shirt. The top 5 designs will be manufactured and sold by ShopTemp! Competition winners will get an awesome reward: not only will they be getting their own t-shirt (imprinted with their design) for free, but they will also be getting a share of the profit ShopTemp makes on each of their t-shirt sold!

    Now, you may be aware that GBAtemp already had a merchandise shop on CafePress. With that one, we had our hands tight: crappy designs, overpriced items, expensive shipping and so on. But now, ShopTemp (based in China) will be responsible for the manufacturing process, and as a result we will be able to offer better merchandise at a much lower price! Isn't that awesome?

    Anyhow, let's get started with the rules of this competition:
    • This competition is open for 1 full month, we will accept entries until the 5th of June.
    • Please submit your entry as PNG format (lossless) at highest resolution. Submit separate images for front and back view (if any).
    • Design an actual t-shirt, though we will probably have to rework the image afterwards to get it ready for the printing process.
    • Anyone (including staff) is allowed to submit as many entries as they want. The best 5 t-shirt designs will be selected by the GBAtemp and ShopTemp staffs.
    • Your designs must not include any trademarked/licensed/copyrighted character or design element (for example, no Mario, Luigi, the ? block, or any other licensed character or element). If you submit a design with such an element it will automatically be disqualified.
    • Please submit your entries by posting a reply on this very topic. You may upload image files from the GBAtemp Picture Upload Service.
    We are eagerly waiting for your designs and I am personally looking forward to wearing one of the brand new GBAtemp t-shirts!

    OH WOW. COOL BEANS.

    Though I kind of don't really know how to do anything artistic, I'm going to see if I can churn up something for this! Honestly, I don't care about the money, but I've always liked making tshirt designs!

    Wow [​IMG] A share of the profits!! HOLY SHIT


    So if we're not allowed to do copyrighted material, does that mean no GBATemp mascot? [​IMG]

    Also does it have to be about gbatemp specifically? Can it be like shoptemp, Tempcast etc?

    And does stuff like game controllers (specific ones) count as not allowed?

    I might enter. But when you think about it, I was too lazy to enter the last competition [​IMG]


    Edit: Is someone going to post a high resolution image of the Gbatemp logo yet?

    I'm pretty sure you can use the GBAtemp logos and stuff (It's supposed to be themed around GBAtemp anyway). The contest is run by them, so I'm pretty sure they won't care.

    you might want to add, design the shirt in as highest resolution as you can, but upload a resized version here. its not going to be fun browsing through pages with possibly 20mb+ images.

    Why would Staff be able to both participate and judge, when it's financial benefitial for themself to win.

    1) because its going to be pretty obvious what the best 5 designs will be
    2) there are like 30 people in the staff
    3) it'd be too complex to organize a mass public vote. We've done it before...
    if you're talking about the admins, neither me, ace or shaun will be entering.
    we'll provide a detailed voting if you want [​IMG]
