WeLoveFine, purveyors of artistic, fashionable, and downright cool fan-made clothing, are launching their third Star Wars T-shirt design contest, running from now until March 12. And the prizes would make for a Boba Fett-worthy bounty.
Winners will be chosen by a panel of special guest judges, including Clare Grant and Seth Green (Robot Chicken), StarWars.com, and TheForce.net. The grand-prize winner will be eligible to take home up to $2,000, and will see their design made into an officially licensed tee and available as a May the 4th (Star Wars Day) e-card on StarWars.com. Judges picks (three in total) will receive a $400 cash prize; clothing retailer Hot Topic will select one entry, awarding $400 plus a chance to have the design sold exclusively at Hot Topic stores; and one runner-up will receive $150.
WeLoveFine's first Star Wars-themed contest in the summer of 2012 brought in hundreds of amazing entries, and the 10 winning designs went on to become some of the site's bestselling Star Wars items. Star Wars creator George Lucas himself gave his approval when he personally purchased some of the winning tees at Celebration VI. Last year's Dark Side Design Contest celebrated the scum and villainy of a galaxy far, far away, with wide-ranging styles and interpretations of classic characters.
