2011 International Gamers With Jobs Day T-shirt Contest

The amazing staff of PenguinCon would like to announce the start of the [color=red]2011 International Gamers With Jobs Day t-shirt design contest[/color]. This contest is open to any goodjer with an ounce (or centiliter, for all you metrics) of creative juice. We will be taking the submitted designs, pitting them against each other cagematch-style, and allowing the entire goodjerverse to vote on each paring to see which design moves on. The final design will be placed on a publicly available t-shirt (the same shirt set to be part of the PenguinCon 2011 Swanky Registration goodie bag). The winning designer will get a free t-shirt, an "about the artist" section on the PenguinCon website and...um...a hearty pat on the back. Any profits made on the aforementioned t-shirt sales will be donated to Child's Play.

If you are interested in submitting designs, here is what you need to know:

- A single designer can submit any number of designs

- Designs must not include copyrighted or trademarked images. This includes Stan or the GWJ logo. Yeah, I know.

- Designs should not exceed 13.5"W x 16.5"H and must fall between 100 PPI and 200 PPI.

- Pretty much any file format is acceptable, but PNG or PSD are preferable.

- The design should probably make some reference to IGWJD 2011, but that's not actually a requirement, I guess.

- Keep 'em classy. Forum rules apply.

So that's really it. The field is pretty well wide open for creative interpretation. Oh, one more important design note: due to their use at PenguinCon, the design will be placed on t-shirts that are 1 of 4 different colors (Red, Green, Blue, Gold), so design with that in mind. Another option (if the designer so wishes) would be to make 4 separate designs - 1 in each of those colors. In that case, all the t-shirts would be a single color. That color would probably be white.

Oh, yeah...[color=blue]the deadline for designs is Friday, August 12th[/color].

All design submissions and any questions should be directed to [email protected].

Please put "IGWJD Contest" in the subject line of any emails that include submissions.

Thanks and good luck!

Oily also offered a private 7th Inning Stretch massage to the winner. Honest.

Tagging for judgment.

You want judgment? You've got it.

My wife's always telling me to stop judging people, but I knew someone on the internet would appreciate it.

Not to be confused with the 2011 International Gamers With Jobs Day Wet T-shirt Contest, which is really best avoided.

Given that at the last GWJ con (Min-Pen-Con) I went to my wife was the only female... I don't think I like this idea.

I will totally enter a wet t-shirt contest!

Me three!

worst. contest. ever.

Also, who is interested in designing? I'd love to see some early stuff.

Hey peeps, please don't forget about the bonus prize.

Also, we need more entries.

"Hello.... Hello.... is anyone in here?"
Seriously though, I wish I had any creativity at all (just ask those who have met me). Come on people I know we have creative types around here.

Sure, no problem. I'll just get out my tablet pen, and—OH WAIT, MY ARM IS BROKEN. :MAD:

A couple years ago I made a high-res version of this:

Apparently I had just missed the first t-shirt contest. So, submitted on time for your approval, pending any necessary adjustments!

Edit: Oof, just realized it's supposed to be e-mailed. E-mailing...

..Does it have to be a shirt? Is space an issue?

-Tempted to actually put that on shirt design-

Yea, seems like fun and for a good cause. I'm in. Gencon first, though.
