A challenge from Redbubble

RB artists hail from cities spread all over the globe, from Athens to Zanzibar. We've shortlisted 47 cities where a bunch of RB artists reside and we'd like you to pick one as your inspiration. It could be a place you've always dreamed of visiting or one you're proud to call home. Your mission is to take the name of your chosen city (e.g. New York) or one of its neighborhoods or boroughs (e.g. Brooklyn) and incorporate it into a super-cool tee design. You might draw inspiration from prominent landmarks, city history, culture, the city's nickname (i.e. the big apple) or great typography or you might prefer to hit it out of the park with a completely unique take on celebrating your chosen city.

Prizes

The winner of the City Tees Challenge will bag themselves $1000, 2nd place will get $500, and 3rd takes home $100. Each of the winners will also snag their design on a tee or hoodie, plus an extra cool surprise.

Important Rules

Designs that don't meet the challenge criteria will be removed so please make sure your design covers the following:

  • Your design must be related to one of the cities on the list, or one of its neighborhoods/boroughs.
  • The name of the city or neighborhood/borough must appear prominently in the design, but it need not be in English.
  • The design needs to be new to Redbubble, so it can't have been added to the site prior to the start of the challenge.
  • It has to be uploaded to Redbubble as a t-shirt design available for sale as well as submitted as an image with a non-transparent background via Strutta.
  • Your design must be original and can not use any intellectual property or publicity rights that don't belong to you.

Challenge submissions begin June 20th and end July 9th. Up to 10 finalists will be chosen for public voting which will begin on July 11th.
