Contest Info


Storyville is launching its first ever online design contest on April 1, 2012. No April Fool's joke here. The winner of the contest will receive a $1,000 cash prize and have the design sold in the Storyville shops and online. The winner will be determined by a combination of Facebook voting as well as judging by the Storyville staff. 


At Storyville, we print new tees everyday. And we like debuting new products every week in our shops and online. Therefore, we are looking to change the way that we generate new designs. We'd like to open it up and get our fans involved in the design creation process. User generated products will also keep our shop shelves as fresh as possible. So we're turning to you to help us come up with new designs. And we'll pay you for it. We'd like to make this April design contest one of many to come. If this first design contest proves successful, Storyville will launch frequent design contests with cash prizes (at least one a month). It's our hope that differently-themed design contests will inspire new designs on a regular basis. With our 6,000-square-foot print shop going at full speed, nobody can get new designs and products faster to market than Storyville.



We're in the process of working out the details of the design contest, but here's how it will basically work. You come up with a design, and submit it through this website. The design must contain original artwork, and must be completely your own creation. We don't want to pay $1,000 for something that you found on Google Images. Designs must also be print-ready, so that the design can go straight from your laptop to our print shop. Text can be included in the design, but text-only designs are unlikely to win the design contest.

Entries will be accepted right here on, and once an entry is approved, it will be available for viewing and user feedback. When the contest ends, the design with the best combination of popular support via Facebook and critical support from the Storyville staff will be judged the winner. The winner will receive $1,000. Storyville will then own the winning design and will make it available for purchase in our shops and here at
