Design and Submission Rules and Guidelines
Design may not exceed 11” wide by 12” high.
Design will appear on the front of a solid-color shirt.
Design will be printed in up to two solid colors. Gradients and transparencies cannot be incorporated.
Design must be wholly original. By submitting a design, you are guaranteeing that you hold original rights to everything in it, that it may be printed on distributed t-shirts, and that it does not contain any copyright material.
It’s recommended to render your design in Adobe Illustrator or a similar design program. Entries should include the original file, a vector-based EPS file, a high resolution JPEG or PDF file.
A conceptual design may be submitted instead of a fully rendered design. All conceptual designs must be spelled out using highly descriptive language to fully articulate the design. A sketch of the design must be submitted along with the description. Select designs may be chosen for rendering by a graphic artist.
Members limited to (1) entry. Entries can be submitted by an individual or as a collaborative effort. See more on collaborative efforts below.
Entries become the property of Throttle Addiction.
Throttle Addiction reserves the right to make adjustments to all entries, including colors of the design and the shirt.
Collaborative entries should use the name of your group when possible. No entry using the name of a company will be accepted. Should a collaborative entry win, the winning group is responsible for determining how any prize will be shared within the group.
Entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
All entry emails should have the subject line “T-shirt Design Contest + Designer(s) Name + Design Title.”
Include your name, mailing address and telephone number. Collaborative entries should include a list of participating members noting the main contact for the group submission for communication.
