T-Shirt design contest | Tattoo-style

IT’S TIME FOR A SECOND EDITION OF THE 500 PHOTOGRAPHERS T-SHIRT AND YOU CAN BE THE DESIGNER.

What am I looking for?:
I’m looking for an original “tattoo-style” design that will be printed on black t-shirts in a limited edition of 100. It needs to have a reference to the number 500 but can include lot’s of other things from skulls to pretty flowers to vintage cameras. It needs to be “bad-ass”, original and creative! I’d like a fairly large design for the back of the t-shirt and a small one for the front (optional) that might be placed on a front pouch.

Are there restrictions?:
Yes, you are only allowed to use a maximum of 2 colors as we are printing at an expensive but high quality screen printer and still want the t-shirts to be affordable. You also have to be able to deliver the images (once chosen) in the correct vector format: either .eps, .ai or .cdr.

What will you get in return?:
You will get 2 t-shirts with your own design in the sizes you wish, a collection of photography / poster-art books including Backflashes: Graffity Tales by Ruedione and Emek …the thinking man’s poster artist…
Your name and website will be mentioned on this website, the facebook page and the certificates of authenticity that come with the t-shirts.
All designs submitted will be posted on facebook with your name and website on the 500 Photographers facebook page.

When is the deadline?:
We’re working fast, so the deadline for your examples is SATURDAY JUNE 2ND 2012.
