How to Submit a Design for a DBH Contest
1. Create your art
We recommend using a program such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator to create your design. It’s also important to remember that your art must be hi-resolution to achieve the best quality print. To assist you in your pursuit of creativity we have prepared a Design Guide to help you create the best submission possible.
2. Submit your art
To submit your design use our Official Entry Form. You will need to submit your design as a low-resolution version for the contest. Follow our Design Guide for helpful tips and best practices. After your design is submitted it will go through our internal review. You will receive a confirmation email once your design has been approved.
Reasons for Rejected Submissions
- No placement shown in submission
- Copyright Infringement or Duplicate Submission
- Artwork has offensive or inappropriate content
- Submission file damaged or the artwork needs more work
3. Promote your design
Spread the word by letting friends, family and your fans know how talented you are! Post a status message with a link on Facebook, make a tweet on Twitter, post an image on Tumblr, throw your art up on Instagram and email your entire contact list! Reel in those votes!
4. How Are Winners Chosen?
Contest winners are chosen based on originality, quality, printability, and input from the DBH Art Department. The contests usually have a judging panel from the contest partner and the DBH team who make the final decision. This is based on the partners brand, characters and artist reactions to the brief provided. Votes and comments are only used for community engagement and are not a deciding factor on whether or not a design gets printed.
