I'm in charge of laFraise's ( www.lafraise.com ) European (EU) blog and also in charge of boosting the community on their EU site. (laFraise has been around for a number of years and now have a massive following in Europe. They are considered the "Threadless" of Europe. So if you are worried about how legit they are, worry no more.)
Their French site has a large user/artist base, but they wan't to jackup their EU userbase.
So this is a call to all artists.
You can win 1000 Euros (about $1400 USD) if your design is selected in their ongoing contest.
Just setup an account, and go to "Submit" for full details and template.
-the design has to be made in a vector art program such as Illustrator.
-maximum of 8 unique colours
-gradients and rasters are fine as long as the final amount of colors needed to print does not exceed 8
-uploaded file must be 600 x 600 pixels

Either way I hope see see alot of you on there.
I'll also be contacting individual artists to come on board as well once I get some time in the next few weeks.

(Feel free to post any questions)

well if you go to the English (European) site then it will explain it all, but the jpg has to be 600x600. See the flags on the far left of the website? Click on the third one down, thats the European site :)
Good luck!

Well when you upload your file just use a jpg or png, but when you send them the final design once you win, .cdr or .ai is fine.

Of course I could always just do my traditional art and load it into illustrator:) I just don't have the program.

I guess i don't completely understand this post because it says "So this is a call to all artists." and then it says -"the design has to be made in a vector art program such as Illustrator." This is by no means all artists although I realize a lot of artists these days use this program. :D Traditional artists left out on this one it seems. Good luck everyone
Reply
:iconj3concepts:
j3concepts Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2008
It works for traditional artists, the only problem is your drawn image has to be less than 8 colours and needs to be large enough to print on a tshirt (300 dpi) thats why vector is ideal. You can def still submit though assuming all the prerequisites are fulfilled :) good luck!

Is this contest only for european artists or from anywhere?
Reply

anywhere. when you signup it'll only have European countries, just select anyone, it really doesnt matter which you select. they fix the issue soon enough, but it doesnt have any bearing on anything.

Probaby because the username you are trying to register with someone already chose. maybe try adding a number to the end of it.
