2008 MAA T-SHIRT CONTEST!!!

Post by THE ARCHANGEL » Mon Mar 24, 2008 11:38 am

2008 MAA T-SHIRT CONTEST

We’re starting this a month later than last year….but it’s time for another MAA T-Shirt Contest. The MAA is once again looking to promote the club. Many people, both Airsoft players and fans of the MAA have been sporting MAA T-Shirts for the last year and it’s increased our visibility to the public and the Airsoft world.

Show off your creativity and design skill and make us a kick-ass T-shirt that the MAA and Minnesota Airsoft Community can be proud of. The winning design will be made into the Official 2008 MAA T-shirt. The winner will get all the bragging rights and a free T-shirt for his/her design.

The Rules:
  • • All T-shirt designs must be submitted to the Minnesota Airsoft Associationâ„¢ via E-Mail at info@mnairsoft.org.
    • All designs must be received by May 5th, 2008.
    • All designs must be submitted in a digital format (.jpg, .ai, .psd, etc). No sketches, scanned drawings, or links to other design sites.
    • Use of the MAA Logo is prohibited UNLESS express permission is granted. Basically, just ask us before using it.
    • T-shirt designs may be used on any style of T-shirt including short sleeve T-shirts, long-sleeve T-shirts, tank tops, etc.
    • Designs are NOT limited to one side and may include front, back and sleeve elements.
    • Designs must be original artwork. We will not accept any designs that feature :
    - Existing registered trademarks (i.e. John Deere, FORD, Superman logo, etc.)
    - Obvious plagiary or blatant redesign of existing non-trademarked design.
    - Vulgar or profane designs or content. This design will be representing the MAA and we will not allow something that is flat out offensive.

    • Anyone can submit a design for the contest and multiple submissions are allowed.
    • Voting for the T-shirt design will be limited to Members of the Minnesota Airsoft Association™.
    • Voting will be run in the MAA Member’s Only Forum from May 5th to May 9th, 2008.
    • The winning T-shirt design selected for 2008 will become the property of the Minnesota Airsoft Association™. By submitting a design you agree to release your rights for that submission.
    • The creator of the winning design will receive a free T-shirt and bragging rights for the year. If more than one run of the design is made (IE: T-shirt and Tank Top), the creator will get one of each production.
    • In the event of a first place tie, voting will be extended for another 3 days with only the two choices available to be voted on. This process will continue until one shirt has been picked.
    • The MAA reserves the right to "clean up", alter, and otherwise modify the design should issues arise. This is a general disclaimer protecting the MAA from liability. Should an issue arise that would require the MAA to modify the winning design, a re-vote will occur.
    • All proceeds from T-shirt sales will go to the Minnesota Airsoft Association™.
We're hoping this year will be another success.

If you have any questions, comments, or need clarifications....please post them here.

I am going to try and through together something nice a lil bit later; I am swamped in HW right now.

I need to find a computer with photoshop... Paint just ain't doing it for me...

However, I do like the style of my first one; just like the ARMY or NAVY or AIR FORCE apparrel, just MAA instead. Nice and simple, and will prolly be really cheap as well.

My first wave of submissions. I have more ideas floating around, so we'll see if I have time for more. Suggestions/tips for improvement are welcomed.
I didnt put them on tshirt backgrounds, as I figured it would be up for debate regarding putting it on front or back, using multiple designs, so on.

Wow, I was gonna design something just to see if I could win... but after seeing yours Blackcat, I'm not going to lol. Props, I like em all.
Edit: as for a suggestion, on the last one, I would use two of the same guns i.e. double ak's or double M4's, but that's just my opinion

I have extended the submission date to Monday the 5th as I will not be in town to collect them and figured another 2 days may bring in more designs.

This is really more of a patch design than a tshirt. I removed fancy effects and used a plain font.

Some of the effects of the previous images like the glow/shadow and alpha transparency probably won't show up well on a tshirt. So, although I like the designs, I may have to rework them for a tshirt design.

I have more ideas, if I have time I will play with some more stuff. I personally like the first and fourth in my first post.

As you can see, I am addicted to that font. Can you blame me? The font name is "Armalite Rifle". Kickass.

Even though I can't vote on it, I really do like that first one too. The guy in the writing is very subtle, yet very striking after you look at it for awhile.

I would say though, maybe focuse more on his upper body/head/shoulders/etc. because then he would be even more prominent and just seems like it would look better to me.

I am starting off with these two designs. I have about three more currently on the "drawing board" that I do not have time to complete tonight. When they are done I'll just edit this post to reflect it. Here are the first two:

MAA Patriot with slogan

MAA Patriot without slogan

MAA Shield with slogan

MAA Crest/Patch

Well, I left this open an extra day....on top of my original extension....but the time has come to close it.

Trikx:
• All T-shirt designs must be submitted to the Minnesota Airsoft Association™ via E-Mail at info@mnairsoft.org.
I never received anything at that account so your designs are not being considered at this time.

Members, check the Member's Only section to vote.
