9fountains june editors choice winners

I told you I’d mention these shirts and I actually remembered too! Sure, I’m a few days late, but better late than never, right?



Three new winners at 9 Fountains

9fountains t-shirts

I don’t think I’ve ever done two Singapore-related posts back to back before, but there has to be a first time for everything. 9 Fountains have impressed me since their launch with maintaining a regular release schedule of impressive shirts. At a time when it seems like every new t-shirt design competition appears to be doomed to failure these guys look to be getting it right and running a sustainable business. The three shirts above are available now, they’re the grand prize/1st runner up/2nd runner up winners, and there will be four more designs going live on Monday that are the editors choices from the June competition that I will try to remember to mention, but I make no guarantees since I will probably be pretty busy after my weekend in Belfast (which is currently happening, this is an auto-post I wrote on Wednesday, weird huh?).

A new online t-shirt community aiming to elevate design and promote artists in Singapore and the region has launched. offers a platform for artists and t-shirt lovers to get together to appreciate great artwork sans the high-brow exclusivity.

All illustrators are invited to submit their artwork, which are then put through a voting process that is open to the public. If a design receives enough votes, it is printed onto T-shirts which are then made available for sale online. Winning artists get full bragging rights and a cash prize for their work.

And let’s not forget the people who actually wear the tees. All t-shirt lovers are invited to vote and comment on the submitted works. Ultimately, your votes determine the winner. Our first official competition is currently underway so check it out!

The launch collection was designed by Singapore-based artists whom we have christened The 9 Fountains Founding 15. Our wicked cool tees can be found at

[Andy: I’m really glad that 9fountains submitted a post because I’ve been meaning to write about them for a while. Whilst there is the obvious caveat that t-shirt design competitions are pretty common nowadays and that the more there are in the marketplace the harder it will be for new competitions to carve a niche and survive, I really hope that these guys do well because they’ve already got some kick-ass designs in store, and perhaps their location in Singapore will make them more popular to Asian t-shirt buyers, as I don’t know of too many design competitions in Asia.]
