WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
In our 26th design contest, we're going wild. We're looking for your best animal-themed design. So have fun and explore the animal kingdom with this fun new contest. As always, multiple entries are allowed. The winner of the design contest will receive $1000 and have his or her design sold in our New Orleans shops. We'll announce the contest results on Wednesday, June 5.

After you upload your design directly to our website and if it gets approved, invite all of your friends and family on Facebook to give your design a "like." The number of Facebook likes won't necessarily choose the winner, but they will factor heavily into our decision (Facebook likes both on our website and on Facebook itself represent 1/3 of a submission's overall score). All your supporters have to do is comment on or like the design directly on your design's page on our website. They just need to be logged into their Facebook account in order to do so. Facebook likes and comments matter, so share your design's page on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and via other social media to gain buzz!
The winning designer gets $1000 and will have his or her design sold in our retail shops and online. Offers may also be made on non-winning designs. This design competition is open for submissions runs until Midnight on Friday, May 31, 2013. The winner of the contest will be announced on Wednesday, June 5, 2013, at Blog.StoryvilleApparel.com.
Ready to go? Create a design and submit it through this website. The design must contain original artwork, and must be completely your own creation. We are not going to pay $500 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. Artwork should be created as a vector-based image. This means it's best to create the file in .eps, .cdr or .ai format. Saving a flat image, such as a .jpg file, as an .eps file won't do the trick. The original file has to be vector-based in order for us to be able to print it. However, you should upload a .jpeg version onto our website for viewing purposes. Text can be included in the design, but text-only designs are unlikely to win the design contest, unless they're really, really well done. Finally, please limit yourself to 6 colors in your design so that, if we print your tee, the finished product will more closely resemble your submission.
All contest submissions should be in .jpg file format and should be set at 72 dpi, with a width of 490 pixels and a height of 520 pixels.
Entries will be accepted right here on StoryvilleApparel.com, and if 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 ultimate goal of this contest is to generate commercially viable products. Upon the conclusion of the contest, Storyville will own the winning design and will make it available for purchase in our shops and here at StoryvilleApparel.com.

Please read all of the terms and conditions, and make sure you understand that, by submitting your design in this contest, you cannot print the submitted design or sell it to anyone other than to Storyville until 90 days after the contest has ended.
