The Challenge

~ The BEST in Sci Fi Shirt Designs! ~

OK, we know who we are…. we may resent it when they call us “nerds” behind our backs but hey, we know every answer in the Star Trek/Star Wars category when we play Trivial Pursuit! (Other categories, not so much).

The Uninitiated call us up whenever they don’t “get” a reference in the latest episode of Dr. Who. And we answer! Even though they woke us up at 1 a.m!

That much said, this challenge is for sci-fi geeks! Would we wear a crazy t-shirt with a “secret message” on it only fellow sci fi nerds would ever get? You betch-yer life!

That’s the focus of this challenge: let’s see your most creative sci-fi T-designs. The kind that bring a smile from your Fellow Sci Fi Geeks ~ but make the Uninitiated shake their heads. (They don’t get it, so they probably think you’re Just Plain Weird)! We’re going for the Smilers here, so set your phasers for laughs!

Show us your funniest, your cleverest, your Ultimate in Nerdiness! (Fan Art is acceptable, as are more generic science fiction themes.) The choice may be a little rough, but let us see your fave!

This challenge is for Sci-Fi only! Epic Fantasy (such as Game of Thrones) is not accepted in this group, nor are Horror Movie themes (zombies, etc). Any entries not in keeping with our rules or the challenge theme will be removed, so please see our Home Page if you’re not familiar with our group requirements.

Also, this challenge is for SHIRTS exclusively. So be sure your entry’s in the Shirt Format (clothing) not under prints, cards and posters.

The rest is up to you!

(Mash-ups welcome; just be sure Sci-Fi is the starring element in your design.)

And please, if you’re doing fan art list your inspiration! Nearly everybody recognizes Trek and Dr. Who but other series, movies, books, games, etc. can be a bit obscure. EVEN for your hosts (!), though we’re loathe to admit it publicly. Just let us know what you’re referring to. If we don’t recognize your source or it doesn’t seem to us like Science Fiction, it will likely be removed.

Have a lot of fun with this! (We know you will)

(Also, if you have an IMAGE, ie., artwork, card, poster, print you would like to use please re-post it under Clothing. If you’ve never done so and you’d like some help, just write and let us know!)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for more than one. Go for the Nerd Factor! (Choose it if it makes you smile ~ choose it if it makes you think “Aha! I get that bit!” ~ choose it if you’d wear the shirt because you think it’s cool ~ and funny ~ and portrays your favorite show or Sci Fi in general in a cool and clever way.)

The most important thing is – VOTE!

As always, no padding of the ballot box via Bubblemail, Facebook, or any other venue. Let the winner win on merit, not popularity!

Rewards & Prizes

Along with a winner’s banner, bragging rights, etc., winner gets a Feature in our Forum, a highlight on our Group Home Page and membership among our Featured Artists on the site (provided that the winning entry gets at least 5 votes).

If we have a minimum of 20 entries, we will recognize the Top 10. If less than 20, Top 5. They also get a mention in our Forum and a banner.

In the event of a tie for 1st place, all winners will be recognized.

Additional Information

Please be sure your entry’s in the group by voting time!

The hosts reserve the right to remove entries which are not in the group, or which fail to comply with the theme of the challenge or the Group Requirements and Rules.

Again, this challenge is for clothing only and your artwork must be sci fi media-related!

That’s it. Now, go out and make us laugh. Engage!
