It's another Double Take Derby!  Eligible: designs from derbies 339: 8-Bit Adventure through 352: Grumpy (EXCLUDING 340: Double-take Derby 23 and 344: Purple). Check it out! 

But wait, there's more! Launching on 5/9...

Derby #355: Fortune Favors the Bold

We're looking for designs that celebrate boldness and bravery. Maybe it's a character facing his or her greatest fears, a slogan that champions the courage to follow your dreams, or a tee with such visual gusto that only a truly bold designer would DARE submit it to the Derby.

Your chutzpah pays off with special derby prizes:

1st Place: $1000 + Wacom CINTIQ Wacom Cintiq 13HD Interactive Pen Display and Spectrum 20: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art
2nd Place: $1000 + Wacom CINTIQ Wacom Intuos Pro Pen and Touch Medium Tablet and Spectrum 20: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art
3rd Place: $1000 + Spectrum 20: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art

Plus ten random Derby voters will get something crappy!

Rules: No creme tees

Picking nits--the second place prize is not a Cintiq. But YAY on more prizes!

Sad to see purple won't be getting a double take shot. That's the one I was really looking forward to pushing.

Ok so it just not getting new ideas/submission for previous derbies. It is just getting entries from previous submissions I made and making them better?

I have only one this time, but I am excited about it- I always have bad luck in these doubletakes but this is likely my favorite HM I have ever gotten-


CAN NOT WAIT for the bold derby- I'm stewing some ideas already- Solid prizes woot- solid...

No, Woot picks a handful of entries after each derby for honorable mention. The every few months they have a derby that just features these previous designs, no new entries.

Every derby woot selects Honorable Mentions. Those entries are then collected in an oak barrel and aged properly until the double-take derby which starts tomorrow.

So all the entries have already been selected for this derby, no new ones are accepted. You can work ahead for the next derby in 2 weeks though !

Great prizes for derby #355! A CINTIQ would be awesome. I have 6 in this double-take. Would have loved to see the purple derby HMs included.

Here's my preliminary "bravery" design. Far from complete, and I'm considering a caption like "I don't see size" Any thoughts?
