It’s time for the bi-annual ShirtSpace DIY T-shirt contest, and we’ve got a new challenge for our contestants!

Remember when Forrest Gump accidently created the classic smiley face T-shirt? We’d like to hear about your moments of unexpected and unintentional creativity. Get on Instagram and tell us what sparked your creative genius, how the idea came about, and how you’d market your amazing idea to the public. Give us a sample of your brilliance by designing a T-shirt, hoodie, bag, or sock that demonstrates your million-dollar idea, hashtag #ShirtSpaceDesign, and tag us @ShirtSpace!

At ShirtSpace, we believe that your creativity should be celebrated. Think about what inspires you and go from there!

In order to qualify, you must be currently enrolled in college and your design must be printed on the clothing item. The designer of our favorite million-dollar idea will win the scholarship! We need to be able to see your post, so please make your Instagram account public.

Ready to send in your DIY T-shirt submission? Check out the form below for our quick and easy application process. Don’t forget to follow us @ShirtSpace! We can’t wait to see what you’ve got! Good luck and have fun, designers!
