The theme is movies that never were - retro style! We want to see old school movie poster style artwork. For this one though, we suggest you might submit 2 mock-ups, and 2 different pieces of artwork - if you wish. Rectangular designs don’t look good on tees, so avoid hard edges, and no rectangular backgrounds please. However, if this design element would make your poster layout look so much better, feel free to include both on your derby entry mock-up. You can submit the tee art file with your derby entry, and your poster layout as a separate ‘regular submission’ style entry.
Poster sizes will be 12" x 16" & 16" x 20" so make sure your poster layout works on both sizes. We will handle sizing, but you might consider the border in your design so we can scale it well.
The OTHER cool thing we’re going to do this week is run the derby “Deal-O-Meter” style! If you are not familiar with this type of shenanigan by Woot!, it means, the more TOTAL votes we get in the derby, the cheaper those t-shirts will be when they go on sale! Meaning, you will be able to hawk MORE shirts and make more $$$ in the EC!
No politics, no cream shirts.
*This Derby begins MONDAY July 6th at 8pm, CST. & ends MONDAY July 13th at 8pm, CST. The three winning designs will be featured as the Daily offers Tuesday-Thursday. Great designs that don’t win may be included in an Editor’s Choice sale on Friday, so be sure to check back and see who makes the cut!
Please be sure to have your artwork ready to submit with your entry as part of the new submission process!
If you want to submit any off-topic designs, submit here!
If you are new to the derby and want to participate, WELCOME! Also, in addition to the rules above please check out our content guidelines here so you know what works and what doesn’t over here at Woot!
