deviantART, in collaboration with Jars Of Clay, proudly brings you the Jars Of Clay T-Shirt Design Contest!
Jars Of Clay is looking for a t-shirt design to celebrate their new album and fall tour, and they want to see if YOU have any ideas. This contest is open to deviantART members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Japan, and South Korea. Due to legal restrictions, the contest is closed to other countries.
All you have to do is create a new design for Jars Of Clay (please see below for full contest guidelines). The design will be used for a t-shirt, and may also be used for a hoody as well. Once the submission period ends, 20 designs will be chosen and deviantART members and Jars Of Clay fans can then vote on their favorite designs, which will be presented to Jars Of Clay, and they will choose the winner who will receive the grand prize! There will also be three runner up winners.
We would love for you to get really creative but if you need some inspiration, you can look to the artwork for Christmas Songs here
REMEMBER: Be creative! Santa in his sleigh, or snowflakes drifting past a window, are great and all, but we bet you can bring something new to the holiday theme!
