T-shirt Design Contest

Monofonus Press

T-shirt Design Contest

Official Rules

POINT OF THE CONTEST: In lieu of spending $1000 on advertising that may or may not have any effect whatsoever we have decided to have a contest. This way we can support a deserving artist with the cold hard CA$H MONEY. We also get something out of the deal in that we wind up with three t-shirt designs that we can print up and sell/giveaway at events.

It’s easy.

1. Make a shirt design incorporating our logo (available below) or at the very least the words MONOFONUS PRESS. Have a look at monofonuspress.com, and get a feel for the kind of things we like. Ultimately we want you to do your thing, but looking around could help.

2. Email us the design or a link to the design.

3. If we like it you win First Prize- $500, Second Place- $200, or Third Place- a sweet package of Monofonus Press releases.

4. We’ll print up the winning design(s), and you’ll be a champion(s).

ELIGIBILITY: The Monofonus Press T-shirt design contest is open to every single human on this planet. With the exception of the judges.
