Attention T-Shirt Designers: DBH 10K Contest

I know we have quite a few t-shirt designers among our readers here at FYC, so we thought we would make a quick mention of the Design By Humans t-shirt design contest in case you hadn’t already heard about it.

Picture 19DBH is turning 2! To celebrate and to thank you all for 2 amazing years, we are excited to announce our 2nd annual DBH 10K Contest! That’s right – 10K – as in TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS to one winning artist!

Submission are now being accepted through July 26, 2009 (Midnight PDT). Artists may enter multiple submissions. Late submissions will not be accepted, no exceptions.


Grand Prize: $10,000 USD
First Runner-Up: $1,000 USD
Second Runner-Up: $1,000 USD
Third Runner-Up: $1,000 USD
Fourth Runner-Up: $1,000 USD


  • The design(s) must be an original work created and owned by the entrant.
  • Designs can use both the front and back of the T-shirt and may contain oversized and mixed-media elements.
  • Designs may contain up to 14 colors, including halftones and gradients.
  • If your design is selected you will be required to submit the winning design in high-resolution (at least 300 dpi at actual size).

The winner of last year’s contest was CollisionTheory with his design Black Hole Sun, and he used his prize money to start an apparel line. Read more in an interview with the artist here.
