Calling All Graphic Designers – Win A Wacom Tablet

megaphone man

We’ve run competitions in the past.

With most of them the prize was either a hosting plan or a domain or maybe even both.

We haven’t given away non-hosting prizes in quite some time, apart from the hoodies a few weeks ago, so we thought it was about time that we did.

So this time round we’re giving away a Wacom graphics tablet.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?

So what’s the catch?

Well the catch is that we’re throwing down the gauntlet to the designers and creative types out there. We currently have some tshirts and hoodies over on Spreadshirt, however we’re looking for something new and interesting. The domainer tshirts over here are more fun than the current set we have and if you like online tshirt shops I’m sure you’ll have seen plenty of funky tshirts.

We want a design that reflects us, that people will want to wear and that people will actually like.

NB: As we will be using the design for tshirts and other promotional gear the designer must assign us all rights on the chosen winning design

If anyone has any questions or queries about the competition please feel free to ask.

We’ll run the competition for the next two weeks.

UPDATE March 30th 2009: We’re extending the deadline by a further week

    We have had one or two queries from people regarding the tshirt competition.Entry format – as we’re looking at design at this stage and not actual production then it’s not that important which format you choose. As long as we…

    @Roro – we were asking designers which model they’d like to have, but we didn’t get a clear answer 🙂 Which model would you want?
    @Doreen – the more the merrier
