For those of you that are trying to break into the world of design in either fashion or graphic I have contest for you. The Philadelphia Collection launched its 2nd annual T-shirt Design contest (Entry Deadline is July 8th at Midnight) as one of its kick off events for the style events that will be taking place in Philadelphia through September.
“The contest asks local fashion and graphic designers to create a design for a men’s and a women’s T-shirt, using The Philadelphia Collection logo, which will be sold at various retailers in Philadelphia. The contest runs from June 20, 2011 through July 8, 2011 (which is tomorrow).
The design contest marks the first of many events that The Philadelphia Collection 2011 will showcase in its mission to engage members of Philadelphia’s diverse fashion and style community. The winner will receive (in addition to bragging rights) brand/name exposure on the hangtag, exposure in select retail shops throughout the city, six complimentary t-shirts of their design, tickets to an event for The Philadelphia Collection 2011, and $150.
Nigel Richards of The 611 Lifestyle will produce the shirts locally in Philadelphia after the winner is selected on July 19th.The shirts will be sold for $30 at select retailers beginning September 1, 2011.”
