Back by popular demand: The SOLIDWORKS World T-shirt Design Contest!

Earlier this year, three SOLIDWORKS users were responsible for creating the official SOLIDWORKS World 2016 t-shirt designs.  This was the first time the community had a hand in designing and voting on the coveted piece of swag that is a SOLIDWORKS World t-shirt. Further, the contest resulted in not one, not two, but three unique designs for attendees to choose from as their own. The good news: we’re bringing the competition back for SOLIDWORKS World 2017!

In case you forgot, here’s a reminder of what the designs looked like (but chances are, much like that SWW10 shirt, you’re still wearing it around).

If you’ve got the creative skills to design the shirt everyone will be wearing in LA this February 5-8, here’s what you need to know to participate:

  • Set your browser here:
  • Grab the style guide and review the entry rules.
  • Think of concepts that embody the SOLIDWORKS World atmosphere: energy, bacon, beverages, excitement, more bacon, humor, camaraderie, cool tech and fun. With the event being held in LA, perhaps adding some local flair would be a good tactic for making your design stand out (see the above Texas and Dallas examples). The only limit is your own imagination – well, and the style guide and entry rules.
  • Design and submit your entry.

The deadline to submit your idea(s) is October 21, 2016. You can submit an unlimited number of entries, but each must be a completely new design. SOLIDWORKS will then review the submissions and select finalists. Next, we’ll open up the voting to the general public – YOU (and everyone you know) can then vote on your favorite design! Voting will take place between October 31, 2016 and November 11, 2016. The top three vote getters will have their designs printed on t-shirts to be distributed on-site at SOLIDWORKS World along with the satisfaction of knowing thousands of fellow users will be wearing their shirt for years to come.

Enter your design today and create a piece of SOLIDWORKS World history. Click here to get started.
