Summer E Games T-Shirt Contest

Ends on 25 Aug 2009

Back in February, we had our first Escapist T-Shirt design contest and we had such a good turn out, we wanted to run another one...this time for Summer E Games gold, silver and bronze, along with bragging rights with your t-shirt in our Escapist Store.

The Rules

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!

  1. Download our t-shirt template below.
  2. Use one of our available colors that are linked below.
  3. Create your logo, design or saying right on top of the template.
  4. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. Already Used Ideas - Check out our store before you start your creation. We want unique ideas, not replicas.
  3. Someone Else's Ideas - If we find out you ripped off someone else's design, you will be banned.
  4. 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.

Other rules:
  1. 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.
  2. All T-shirt designs submitted to The Escapist become property of The Escapist. The Escapist reserves all rights to publication, re-publication and distribution.
  3. Minimum Quality of Entries: If, at the sole determination of the judges, no contest entry is of the quality and standard required for distribution through The Escapist Store, then none of the entrants shall be awarded and the prize is waived.

The deadline for this contest is Tuesday, August 25th 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 26th and will end on Friday, August 28th at approximately 5PM EST.

The Prize

The prize for winning this contest will be your shirt up in our merchandise case for all to see, buy and wear, along with a fancy new profile badge! We'll also send you one of your shirts to wear, free of charge and with all the bragging rights that come with it.

Gold, Silver and Bronze medals/badges will be given to the top 3 t-shirts with the most votes.

Permanent Banning

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.
