ZOMG Pink Gorilla T-shirt Design Contest

April 23, 2012

Zazzle has teamed up with Talenthouse to launch one of the most epic design contests ever!

Boston has its Marathon… Pamplona has the bulls… New Orleans has Mardi Gras… San Francisco has the historic Zazzle Bay to Breakers 12k!

The 101-year old Zazzle Bay to Breakers 12k is one of the world’s largest and oldest footraces, held annually in San Francisco, California. The name reflects the traditional course which takes tens of thousands of participants from the northeast end of the downtown area near The Embarcadero (the “bay” side of the city) to the west end of the city and the “breakers” of Ocean Beach. The 7.46 mile (12 kilometer) race features world-class athletes in addition to costumed runners and ‘fun-loving’ folks out for a great day of running and walking through San Francisco.

During the week leading up to this epic event, Zazzle will be hosting a series of ZOMG events throughout the city at some of the largest and most popular venues. Visit zomg.zazzle.com for information about the ZOMG Events! The mascot of this years’ ZOMG is “Pink Gorilla”. Zazzle is looking for an amazing t-shirt design that will be used as the official ZOMG t-shirt for all of the epic events hosted throughout the city during the week of May 13-20.

The winning design will be showcased in the Official Pink Gorilla Store, and in front of the 100,000+ participants in the ZOMG events, at the 101st Zazzle Bay to Breakers, and within the user-generated video with up to 2 million anticipated views. The winner will also receive $1,000 in prize monies. Three runner-ups chosen by Zazzle will receive exposure through the Zazzle social media channels and will each receive $50 in Zazzle store credit.

How To Enter

  • All entries must be received by May 3rd 2012 at 11:59pm PST
  • Participants must use the t-shirt design templates that can be downloaded at www.zazzle.com/mk/custom/guidefiles
  • Designs must be original (meaning not using third party pre-existing copyright materials)
  • Submissions must be submitted in either JPEG or PNG format (max 5MB)
  • All entries must be in the spirit of “Pink Gorilla” and are encouraged to utilize this color palette
