Design By Humans & Wacom® Presents, See What You Can Do!In a Design By Humans Timed Tournament

See What You Can Do!When two companies with the same passion for design get together, only one thing can happen...Greatness. Design By Humans and Wacom challenge you to create a t-shirt design, in a Head to Head Tournament style bracket where 3 winners will be selected, and one grand prize winner will be crowned.


Qualification Round

Anyone who chooses to participate will get one shot to make it to the head to head tournament. Design By Humans will randomly select a topic, then contestants will have 60 minutes to create their design and upload artwork, thumbnail, and placement images. Anyone can participate, but only 32 will advance. Design By Humans will select the top 32 based on votes, comments, community response, printability, trends and marketability.


Head to Head Tournament

Head to Head Preview Contestants who are selected for the Head to Head Tournament, will be paired against one another and given the same topic. Design By Humans will randomly select a topic, and contestants will have 60 minutes to create their artwork, thumbnail, and placement images. Community members will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite interpretation of the topic in a head to head vote off.

The Head to Head Tournament will require new artwork for each round you progress. Therefore, please be aware that you must give 60 minutes of your time each week, as long as you stay in the tournament. Failure to comply will result in an automatic disqualification.

How The Contest Works

Once you click "Start" contestants will get 60 minutes to complete a design and upload a thumbnail, artwork, and placement images in the same format as the daily contest. The artwork should represent the category that you've been given and you will be judged on how well you've executed it.

  2. Contestants will have 60 minutes to submit their t-shirt designs
  3. The 60 minute countdown begins once you click "Start"; after clicking start your topic will be given to you
  4. The top 32 designs will be selected by Design By Humans to advance to the Head to Head Tournament
  5. In the Head to Head Tournament, you will have 60 minutes to complete your design
  6. If you make it to the Head to Head Tournament, you must complete your entry within 4 days of the new round starting.
  7. The community will vote on the Head to Head Tournament entries to determine out of the 2 entries, who has executed the design challenge the best
  8. Winner will move into the next round
  9. Winning designers will get a new category and opponent each week they progress
  10. The top three winners will receive Wacom tablets, cash, and their t-shirts printed

Judging

Entries will be judged on the quality and execution of the topic that contestants have been given along with votes, comments, community response, printability, trends and marketability.
