You'll also get a year subscription to Threadless' 12 Club, $300 to their site, and $1,500 in cash.

    Check out the contest here.

    Just so nobody wastes any time on something ineligible, remember that these designs have to be 5 colours or fewer (black and white count as colours, but if you're smart you can incorporate the t-shirt's colour as a free sixth), no gradients, no photographs, and ideally need to be vector. If not vector then at least 150 dpi raster.

    It has to be in Photoshop or something like that, right? No scans, drawings and stuff?

    Well, I'd assume it has to be original at the very least.

    The whole problem is that I may have some kind of difficulty with understanding the rules (language). I took a look and most of the works on that site are made via photoshop-like programs. I'm not into photoshop but I'm into drawing, that's why I'm curious if drawing something and scanning it would make it or is it completly impossible. I'm about to start working on something BioShock-related and if I can submit it then why not? If not then, well, I want to be sure.

    You could scan the image and do a colour reduction...

    I can't find a Terms & Conditions page on the site, but 2K Elizabeth has said it is for international entrants too.

    So far the designs aren't very good. I'm tempted to give it a shot.

    I believe that The Leftover has won.

    (I hope that URL works... Threadless can be wonky right after they update)

    I think it's a great design, certainly better than mine, and I might even find myself buying one.

    \o/

    Here it is for you people who can't be buggered to click on things (you lazy, lazy people)

    Puke is a very good color for the x-box 360, to get this color you need to visit you're local curry shop, then have 15 pints of any beer, and you'll be soon producing vast qualitity's of this color.

    It's a nice composition certainly, but... military helmets? Smoking buildings? Birds?! Has the story changed again?

    The contest was not limited to the game, but an overall "Descent into Rapture" theme.

    If anyone browsed through the submissions during the contest they would see that this one was the best hands-down. I'm really happy it won (already ordered mine).

    It may not be "HEY! check me out I'm BIOSHOCK!!", but I think it captures the atmosphere and aesthetic of the game perfectly while still being able to stand on it's own.

    I feel cold and sad. Why, cause I wanted to be in teh contest... Anyways, that's a sweet shirt.
    Dosn't look to Bioshock-ish, I mean, it shows this little girl sitting in a pile of rubble looking at a hologram with a crow flying over head. I was hoping for a drawing of a big daddy raising it's drill over head with a plasmid crushed under neath it's feet. Then a shadow of a man sitting raising his arms.

    Poor fellow. Anyways, great job!

    Good, but...

    The design is very good indeed. But it's a bit disappointing, seeing as though the design really makes no reference to water or the ocean, which is a key part of the game.
