"Threadless Loves Democracy" challenge

Threadless is looking for designs that have nothing to do with the sides in any specific election—US or otherwise. The challenge is all about the idea, the spirit, and the drive behind democracy; not about taking sides.

A special panel of judges including Jeff Staple of Staple Design, Carlos Segura of Segura, Inc, and Ross Zietz of Threadless will choose three designs to succeed. Other cabinet members for the challenge include Sappi Fine Paper, Rock the Vote, Jones Soda, and Jeff Howe's latest book, Crowdsourcing.

Chosen designs will be printed as Threadless tees and Threadless Prints on premium Sappi McCoy paper, and will also be used in a nationwide promotion for Sappi Fine Paper. Designers will also receive goodies including a Gocco P5 Silk Screening Kit, a signed copy of Crowdsourcing, a $250 Apple Store gift card, gift certificates to Screwball Press, free Crown Business Books, and the chosen designs will be available on approximately 1,000 cases (each) of bottles for purchase on Jones Soda's site. As always, designers will also receive a $500 Threadless gift certificate, $2,000 in cash, and an extra $500 in cash for being made into a Print!

Deadline for entries is August 14, 2008. For more info on the design challenge and all its partners, hit the links below:
