Diablo III T-shirt Design Contest

Hello, my friend.
Stay awhile and listen…

Design by Humans is looking for some heroic Humans – or perhaps Demon Hunters or Monks – to design truly worthy T-shirts inspired by Blizzard's Action RPG masterpiece, Diablo III. Design By Humans and its community are a force to be reckoned with in the t-shirt design world, so we're thrilled to be partnering with Blizzard Entertainment, an absolute juggernaut in the video game design world. Combine these two forces, and we expect to see some truly extraordinary shirt designs.

This Is Your Canvas, Create An Epic Diablo III T-Shirt

This Is Your Canvas, Create An Epic Diablo III T-Shirt

By entering, you're giving yourself the chance to have your work seen by the creative minds at Blizzard Entertainment, the very people behind some of the greatest video game titles of the last 20 years. Not to mention reviewed by Design By Humans and it's global community.

Together, we're sending you on a quest: design a t-shirt using characters from Diablo III, and then pit them against each other in a massive art contest for a combined $12,500 in cash and additional prizes. Your quest is somewhat less dangerous than defeating the Prime Evils. No need to fight Mephisto – but feel free to incorporate him into your design.

In fact, you can incorporate any of fifteen character designs from the Diablo Universe listed below.

iamrobman iamrobman Artist from Batangas CIty, Philippines

Would definitely join this contest. Been playing Blizzard games for 7 years including World of Warcraft and will not miss this one!
So if I choose a character and made it into a shirt design there is no way DBH X Blizzard will pick winners with the same character right?
Thank you sirs.

It is in fact September 6th. That is an incorrect date left over from the original timeline that was obviously missed during our update to the contest rules and conditions. We’ve corrected the error in the terms and conditions to reflect the correct date which will be going live momentarily. Good catch!

ZeeLoyd ZeeLoyd Human from Denmark

Neat contest! However, the terms and rules say 23 August
“18.GENERAL CONDITIONS/RELEASE. The Contest is void where prohibited by law and is governed by the laws of the United States of America. The submission of an entry is solely the responsibility of the entrant. Only eligible entries actually received by 11:59 PM PST on August 23, 2013, during the specified Contest Period, will be included in the contest.”
-Is it the 23rd of august or the 6th of september?

wotto wotto Artist from CA, United States

Just a reminder to all-

Artwork is approved on a weekly basis by Blizzard Entertainment to ensure it conforms to their rules and conditions before it goes up for voting if it is approved. Any of you who competed during Dark Knight Rises will remember a similar system was in place during that contest as well. If you do have any questions regarding artwork or submissions please shoot us an email to service@designbyhumans.com

Hey lee13,

If you’re interested in giving it a whirl, you can get a free 30 day trial I believe from Adobe. I know it’s a steep curve to climb in a short period, but there is nothing like a deadline and a prize to motivate people to challenge themselves. We have a lot of tips, tricks, and a large amount of resources available on our forums for beginners and pros alike as well.
