The $10K Cup is here, and it's your chance to get 10,000 extra big ones for your derby-winning shirt design! Here's how it works:
For every derby in July (#363-#366), things will run pretty much like they always do. You'll submit a design. Users will vote. The top 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place vote-getters will sell on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday respectively.
Each of those derby winners for all four derbies will be entered into the $10k challenge. Whichever one sells the most shirts ON ITS FIRST DAY wins $10,000 (and all the other money we owe you contractually too). Let us reiterate: this will be based on FIRST DAY SALES. Top 20 sales don't count, so the winners of the last derby have just as good a chance as the winners of the first.
Sounds good, yeah? Well, hold on, because there's ANOTHER TWIST: we're announcing the themes beforehand. Here they are (with Cliff's notes descriptions):
- Rules for a Slogan shirt: Must include some graphic element.
- Rules for a Text as Art Designs: No super-duper-tiny font sizes and No copyrighted text
Derby #364: 10K Round II: Style
Must use one of the following art styles as seen in previous derbies (with corresponding rules intact):
Derby #365: 10K Round III: Pop Culture Mashups
Bring the pain. Usual copyright rules apply.
Okay, that's about it. Or is it? FINAL TWIST: no creme tees. Okay, not much of a twist, but we gotta say it anyway.
Well, that wraps it up. Best of luck to you all, and may the best (selling) shirt win!
