T-Shirt Design Competition – Prize Review

Posted By Darren Rowse 16th of July 2005 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

I’ve decided that the $100 at Amazon first prize in my ‘design me a T-Shirt’ competition is just not good enough. So here’s what I’m going to do:

1. You’ll still get your $100 (USD) worth of products from Amazon
2. You’ll get the very first T-Shirt free (worth around $20)
3. I’ll offer you 1 hour of blog consultation free for your blog – you choose what you want me to work on (worth $60+)
4. I’ll link to your blog on my side bar for free for 1 month after the prize is announced (priceless – well not worthless)
5. I’ll highlight your blog in a ‘winners’ post (another not worthless give away)
6. I’ll add your blog to be the number one blog on my RSS feed which will mean I’ll check it multiple times per day and become your blog’s number 1 fan! (ok it’s not worth much – but you’ll get yourself a new dedicated reader)

So get your butt into gear, put your creative hat on and design me a T-Shirt! If you can’t do one yourself tell someone who can and split the prize with them.

I’ve had a few good entries so far, but I just know there are more creative design genius types out there. Show me what you’re made of. If you’re short on inspiration – head to the t-shirt page at for some ideas of what other T-shirts are popular.

    Good for you, Darren. I am not an artist or a graphic designer–but I am someone who is saddened by the fact that the work of those folks is consistently undervalued.

    You might consider offering the same prize to those you don’t select in the event that you want to use their designs as well.

    And, while I am here, thanks for your blog. I have learned a lot.

  • Wow cool. I’ll get my crayons out!

  • I am away for a few days now long do I have ;) nice offer

  • Okay, that is great… I might even join. My graphic skills are not the best in the world, but I will try hard.


  • Vix

    That’s a great offer. Wish my graphic skills were up to par. I think you’ll get some good designs.

    Oh, when’s the deadline?

  • Vix – Submissions will be accepted up until the end of the day on 31 July 2005 and the winner will be announced in the week after.

    Also – don’t worry about having to be an amazing designer – a T’shirt can be best if its something simple and not too complex.

    I’ll post the entries that I’ve received so far sometime next week to show the real variety of what people are thinking so far.

  • 3. I’ll offer you 1 hour of blog consultation free for your blog – you choose what you want me to work on (worth $60+)

    I think if I were to win an hour of your time, I would choose for you to tell me what to work on, not the other way around … What’s the point?

  • I guess what I was meaning HART was that in an hour there isn’t much time so if you want me to do a basic overview review I could do that, if you’d rather ask me to focus on adsense optimisation I could focus in on that, if you wanted me to analyse your writing style I could do that – etc…..

  • Meanwhile…Rowsey’s bumped up the ante on his T-shirt competition… all this merely demonstrates the marketing nouse of “the problogger” – for the total cost of $200 he’s getting a T-shirt design for one of his blogs, a whole bunch of “attention” and plenty of links. That’s smart!

    Such design competitions helps companies to create new designs and varieties of t shirts.
