Click on each picture below to see that entry's page, with a fuller view of the design. The final nine, in no particular order...

hmm I thought it said in the FAQ that the second place gets printed and then they choose a third print based off creativity/ adherence to theme... so now they print first place and then what?

Oh man, that's a bummer. Even though its not some picture I get that the halftones "looks like photos" Where does it say you aren't supposed to use elements that look like photos? I saw it specifically said to include halftones which I did though seeing others' designs I guess that is no longer a requirement? Does this look anymore photo-realistic than the winning shirt?


Does this not include photogenic elements?


curious why it wasn't rejected sooner if it was a problem...
I guess I'm just worried it will happen again as I don't really understand how this is different from the elements in the above designs.
