2010 Summer E Games T-shirt Contest
Everyone's favorite Escapist T-Shirt design contest is back in this year's Summer E Games! Just like last year, participants will be competing for gold, silver and bronze medals, along with a chance at having their T-shirt featured in the Escapist Store.
Create anything you'd like to see on a shirt and send it to us. Logos, designs, quotes from your favorite Escapist shows, ponies ... whatever you come up with, we want to see it. You are only allowed one entry, so make it good!
- You must be a registered member of The Escapist. You can sign up for your free account by clicking here, or
Login with Facebook.
- Download our T-shirt template below.
- Use one of our available colors that are linked below.
- Create your logo, design or saying right on top of the template.
- Submit your entry below (please, no bigger than 640x640).
You are allowed 1 entry only, so submit your best!
The following types of entries will not be eligible to win:
- Vulgar Items - Yes, we all know a colorful phrase or two, but that doesn't mean they belong on a shirt. If you decide to use vulgar language in your design, it will be deleted and you will be blocked from participating further.
- Already Used Ideas - Check out our store before you start your creation. We want unique ideas, not replicas.
- Someone Else's Ideas - If we find out you ripped off someone else's design, you will be banned.
- Just Not Good - Put some thought and time into your design. Anyone can take black marker and write something on a shirt. But nine times out of ten, it will suck. Do something that would make us proud, not hate you.
- T-shirt ideas submitted to The Escapist must be the exclusive property of the contest entrant and have never before appeared in any form anywhere.
- All T-shirt designs submitted to The Escapist become property of The Escapist. The Escapist reserves all rights to publication, re-publication and distribution.
- At no point in time does The Escapist promise any winner to have their T-shirt idea created and distributed at the Escapist Store. If by chance The Escapist does use a participants idea, they will be granted that specific T-shirt in a size of their choosing.
The deadline for this contest is Tuesday, August 24th at 11:59PM EST. The top T-shirts will be chosen and posted for voting.
The winners will be decided based on the number of votes received. Voting will begin on Wednesday, August 25th and will end on Friday, August 27th at approximately 5PM EST.
The prize for winning this contest will be a fancy new profile badge! Gold, Silver and Bronze medals/badges will be given to the top 3 T-shirts with the most votes. Plus, the potential of being able to wear your your design via the Escapist Store is pretty cool too.
If you are found cheating in any way, shape or form, you will be permanently banned from all Themis Media properties and have all previous medals, badges and titles stripped.
