9 Fountains x Time Out Singapore competition

This isnt actually a submitted post, but since the newish design competition 9 Fountains sent me a proper press release I thought I’d just regurgitate it because that’s what a good blogger does.

9 Fountains will be collaborating with Time Out Singapore for a T-shirt design contest that will run from 21st March to 21st April 2011.

As this is a special collaborative contest, an open-ended contest theme “Know More. Do More.” has been set for the competition. All artists interested in submitting their artwork will be required to explain how their artwork relates to the theme in the description text during submission.

Voting and commenting will be open to the public and the top 10 designs that receive the highest number of votes will be subjected to a round of judging by a panel of judges. Judges include the creative director for Kult, Mr Steve Lawler aka Mojoko; the owner of Vue Privee, Mr Olivier Henry; editor of Time Out Singapore Ms Alexandra Karplus; and CEO of 9 Fountains, Mr Andrew Wolf.

The winner of the top prize will receive SGD$1000, with first and second runners-up receiving SGD$200 and $100 respectively. All winning artists will get full credit for their work and will be featured in the June issue of Time Out Singapore. Winning artists will also get their artwork printed onto T-shirts for sale on 9 Fountains.com, where they will get a commission for every shirt sold.

This is an international contest and all artists are invited to submit their work. For more information, please go to www.9fountains.com/timeoutsingapore

It seems like 9 Fountains are making a good start to their site’s life, kicking off with strong designs and decent prize money, and now partnering with a well known company with strong ties to their local area, I think they might last a lot longer than most design contests.
