TDKR - Less than a week left to submit + SOME TIPS.

posted by wotto • 5 years ago

Hi Humans,

The deadline is less than a week away for submissions! It went so fast BUT there is still time!

Here are a few helpful tips to clarify and help speed things up for you:
1. Placement must be included – meaning you must place your design onto a T-shirt so we can see how it would look printed, this is an important part of the process.
2. Don’t use other peoples images and pass them off as your own, we’ll find out and it will be embarrassing for you, the artist.
3. Use of images – You CAN reference other peoples Batman art, meaning you can look at it and it can influence your work. Tracing that art is not totally against the rules, BUT it is frowned upon by most professional artists. Drawing your version of Batman, oh yes that’s allowed, has to be said WB don’t give this opportunity out that much so take it!
4. Got rejected? Wanna know why? Email me. Hundreds of other artists do, you can too.
5. Not heard anything? No News is GOOD NEWS usually. Your design is most likely on hold to be seen by WB for second stage approvals.
7. 2 submission per artist, if you sub more I will have to remove them.
8. Don’t troll artists work, this ain’t no witch hunt, just state you opinion and if you believe the art to be stolen, shoot us an email.
9. If your design gets rejected, come back stronger. There is still time to enter. Only accepted designs count as your two submissions.
10. Be Happy. This is supposed to be fun.

this is one of mine that got rejected- what the heck is wrong with it? I put so much time into both of my designs to wait 2 weeks to get both rejected. Doesn’t seem fair at all….

Hi Everyone,

I have answered many emails today and hopefully given some insight into why some of you got rejected. As the contest comes to a close in terms of entries we will consider all of your questions. The reaction to this contest has been HUGE and we have been working tirelessly to get approvals through as fast as possible.

We have received some incredible art and picking winners will not be easy. Good luck everyone.

I submitted a question in the forums but I can no longer find my post to see if it was answered.

I have two main questions I hope you can answer for me.

1) What is the format for submitting , Type of file , file size for the thumbnail, artwork and placement.
For the placement is there a psd of a shirt template?

2) Question regarding deadline.
In reading the terms and condition deadline
it states that ENTRY PERIOD. The Contest begins at 10 AM PST on March 19, 2012 and ends at 11:59 PM PST on April 11, 2012.

Just to be clear PST is like California time right.
So for example worst case scenario If my entry was handed on 2am April 12 EST, since im from Toronto.
Will it still be eligible as far as the due date since 2 am april 12 equals to April 11 2012 @ 11 pm?
