Live! From Shirt.Woot studios. It's:
THE 300TH SHIRT.WOOT DERBY!
That's right, folks, we've reached that ultimate milestone in online shirt competition: 300 derbies! We're pulling out all the stops for this one (what, you didn't notice all those previous stops?) so prepare for an all-out gala of designs and prizes.
First off, let's talk theme: "What Makes Me Different." Are you the only zombie who prefers grains to brains? The only turtle without a shell? Do you have your own style, voice, or point of view that you want to share with the world? All shirts say something about the wearer, so tell us what your shirt says about you. A funny scene, a striking style, a clever play on words. If it's about originality and being a bit different, we want to see it!
And how about the fabulous prizes we're rolling out for this once-in-a-while event? What's behind that velvet curtain?
First Place - $1000 + Wacom Cintiq 22HD
Second Place - $1000 + Wacom Cintiq 12WX
Third Place - $1000 + Wacom Intuos5 Medium Tablet
Fourth through seventh - $1000 + Wacom Bamboo Capture
"Fourth through Seventh place??" You say. "Yes!" We say. We're printing the top seven vote-getters in a row instead of just our usual three. Because, you know, 300 divided by 7 is 42.85, which is…oh forget it. MORE SHIRTS!
Sounds like we're being played off the stage. We'd just like to thank our mothers, our fabulous artists, and our peerless audience. You are, truly, what makes us different. Thank you! Goodnight!
No Cranberry, Lemon, Kelly, Olive, Asphalt, or White tees this week.
