Alrighty gang, here we go.
As suggested on another thread I'm announcing the 2011 UWC T-shirt contest.

Here's the link. http://ukeeku.com/about/ukulele-world-congress-2011-t-shirt-contest/

Artwork must be print ready.

Color and black/white entries will be considered. Artists should consider limiting the number of colors as that makes the shirts more expensive.

Deadline January 1st

Winner gets: 1) free entry into the UWC for himself and friends.
2) A chance to play on stage in front of 100's of ukulele players at the greatest ukulele party in the world.
3) A couple of free T-shirts.
4) Fame and prestige.

Profits from T-shirt sales will go towards bringing the UU staff to the UWC in 2011.

I'm going to let Ukeeku decide how the winner is decided, since this was his idea.

Sounds like fun. What needs to be on the shirt? UWC 2011? Ukulele World Congress 2011? Dates? Location? Front only design, or front and back?

Good question,
I guess Tim/ukeeku should get the designs as he volenteered to do the shirt thing. I'd also post your entry here for fun.

I'm not the designer, but I think it would make an AWESOME T-shirt (or case sticker). It was from a thread a while back about ukulele flags, and I saved it to my desktop.
16617

I just looked it up. It was originally posted by smithpaul60, to give credit where credit is due. He had 2 versions. In the other, the ukes are more behind the skull.

Sorry it took me so long to respond to this, but here is the deal:
I will post the official t-shirt contest site after Ukin in the woods. But the idea will be for people to submit ideas to me by e-mail and I will post them on the contest site, then after January 1, 2011 we (we = Mike, others, and I) will decide on the top 5 or so and yall will vote.
People will be able to submit as many as they want.
Please hang tight and I will post here, there, and everywhere when it starts and when official rules are posted.
If you have a design that you want to send now that is cool. I can open any type of media (jpg, gif, tiff, psd, ai, eps...)

What is UWC?

It is a big get together in Nashville IN area hosted by Mainland Ukes (Hoosierhiver Mike). I think this will be the 3rd annual in 2011. Do a search in youtube and on the web for "Ukulele world congress" and you will see what I mean. A lot of UU posters make the trip.

ukeeku
10-29-2010, 03:25 AM
Sorry, I live in a vector world (I use illustrator mostly)
Pretty much 2550 X 3300 (8.5" X 11" at 300 DPI)

Most any size is workable. I can fix it or redraw it to make it work if it is the winning design.
Thank you for asking questions. I hope to see some awesome designs soon.

ANY design is welcome, in any format. I can clean it up or redraw it if needed.

Would it be possible for someone to post the shirt designs from past years, either here or at the ukeeku contest site? I'm considering taking a stab at creating a design, and I'd find it helpful to see what's been done in past years. Thanks!

I also did the 2009 UWC shirt design, and used a pre-loaded hula girl image from the shirt company I went through (CustomInk). Wanted to add this in case anyone was going with the same image without knowing it was already used! :)http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=1148&d=1238279733

Just my two cents, and please feel free to ignore, but I think line #7 in the rules may be giving some artists some hang-ups: "By submitting a design you give us permission to use it as we see fit." Perhaps there would be more entries if the rules specified who owns the rights to the artwork? Instead of a blanket statement turning over all rights, you could say something like: "By submitting a design, you give us permission to reproduce the design for the UWC 2011 t-shirt and additional UWC 2011 publicity materials including posters, fliers and web ads. All publishing and reproduction rights revert to the artist after the UWC 2011 event." I know copyright issues are a hot issue on this forum, and I'm not trying to stir anything up, but most artists trying to make a living from their work have been burned by statements like #7 and probably won't enter. You could also sweeten the deal, and in addition to a free tshirt, you could offer to link to the artist's zazzle/etsy/website on any web pages where the design is used. Okay, that's my two cents, and I'll go back to lurking now.

Mim
12-10-2010, 04:33 PM
Had a flash of inspiration today... the artwork needs a little tweeking... which I will work on. So here is a rough draft of 2 of mine, if I think of any others I will let you know:

Ok, here are the first few ideas I came up with...

This one is a little abstract, like me! The "W" is also a "3" since it's the THIRD one - clever, right!?
http://i55.tinypic.com/2urmuf8.jpg

I could be mistaken, but I think Victoria Vox may have an entire merch line with this slogan on it - I may actually have zero original ideas...
http://i53.tinypic.com/2ynmeep.jpg

And as you can see in my previous post, I apparently stole this idea too. I GIVE UP!

I like the W3 too. I also like the size doesn't matter but at first I was thinking it said Size does matter (ie think small). Like it better as size does matter and flip it. But then I can't sign my name much less do a design.
I would totally where a W3 logo shirt.

Not a big fan of scull and cross bones. I get enough of that and flames riding the harley..

I doodled something pretty simple, but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to post it here or send it to ukeeku...so I'm going to do both?!

They're all the same design (so I guess they're really just one, heh), but with different placements:

http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=18568
http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=18569
http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=18582

The uke shape is supposed to resemble a person...or, that stick guy is supposed to resemble a uke. :D
I'm not sure whether to include the whole title "ukulele world congress 2011" or would "uwc 2011" suffice, so that was sort of awkward.

ETA: what I learnt from this submission - dang, a ukulele is really difficult to draw!
