RATINGS OPEN FROM 01/17/2018 UNTIL 11:59PM PST on 2/28/2018

About the Judges:

  Tracy Herold - Tracy Herold is the Senior Buyer of Apparel and Home product at BoxLunch. By no means a mathlete, Tracy does have an affinity for mathematics so much so that she wanted to be an Algebra teacher when she grew up. Then after reflecting on her lineage (grandmother was a seamstress, father worked in fashion, and mother is a shopaholic) she decided to switch gears and get a fashion degree. Tracy also loves Mean Girls because Tina Fey.

  Jordan Miller - How do I begin to explain Jordan Miller? Jordan Miller is flawless. She has two Fendi purses AND a silver Lexus. Her hair's insured for $10,000 and I hear she does car commercials... In Japan. Her favorite movie is Varsity Blues. One time she met John Stamos on a plane...And he told her she was pretty. Another rumor is that she’d look like a British man if you cut off all of her hair. While it can be hard to decipher facts from rumors when it comes to Jordan, one thing that is for certain is that she’s the Buyer for women’s apparel at BoxLunch and quotes Mean Girls so much in the office, that it basically comes out like word vomit.

  Glenn Coco: Glen Coco: Glen Coco is that student from North Shore High School you think you know but really don’t. He wears a baggy blue hoodie and has shaggy brown hair. (Note: You’ve seen it from both the left side *and* back.) Glen Coco sometimes receives up to four Candy Cane Grams in class and has the admirable talent of catching said Candy Cane Grams mid-air. “You go fan artists” Glen Coco added, when asked if he could provide any words of inspiration to Mean Girls contest entrants

1. Do: Make something original. Research to make sure your idea isn't already out there.

2. Do: Make stylized art! Let your style shine through on your design!

4. Do: Have fun and be creative!

5. Don't: Use copyrighted Logos. 

6. Don't: Submit similar versions of the same design. Sometimes people submit the same design, but with small changes. This will only divide your votes and hurt your chances of winning rather than help it.

7. Don't: Use any copyrighted, 3rd party or inappropriate materials.  This contest is to submit art designs to be officially licensed.  If it is too obscene or mixes 3rd party, or copyrighted materials, it will NOT be approved.

Q: The submission kit is not downloading.  I need help!
A: Please email [email protected].  We should be able to send you one directly.  Or try clicking here to see if it will directly download for you.

Q: What are the three "Additional Design Images" for?
A: One upload should be JUST the design itself so we can see it clearly. The other images, if you choose to upload them, can be other images of your design. Please remember that each design should be its OWN submission so don't use them to upload multiple designs.

Q: I'm having trouble uploading my images for my submission. What's going on?
A: Please make sure that each image is exactly 1000x1000px JPG, GIF or PNG and each image MUST be under 2MB.


Q: How many designs can I submit?
A: For most contests you can submit up to 10 designs unless otherwise stated.


Q: What file format do you accept?
A: All entries must be in one of the following file formats: GIF/PNG/JPG


Q: If I am a finalist, how large does my high-res art need to be?
A: We recommend that your file is done 15in by 19in at 300 dpi or as close to it as your art program can handle.  If your artwork is too small, it won't work on a tee-shirt and it can hurt your chances of winning.


Q: Is it ok for me to promote my designs to people I know to come and help rate my designs?
A: YES!! We encourage every artist submitting to the contest to promote themselves and their designs to friends, family and followers.  Through our experience we have found that more ratings help us determine what the fans really want as winners!  So please feel free to promote yourselves!


Q: It’s been more than 2 business days and I don't see my design on the site.  What’s going on with my design?
A: We review every submission we get before they are made live for viewing and rating.  We will make every attempt to review submissions within 2 business days.  Please know, if you’ve done any of the following we will not accept the design into the contest and you may not be notified.

- Your design has inappropriate materials or elements.
- Your design uses other copy righted material.  This means you are using other people’s intellectual property in your design you do not have the right to. No mash ups!
-You've used a design created by someone else as your own.
- It’s not a design. A direct photograph or a scribble you just drew on a piece of paper is not considered a shirt design.


Q: I see people cheating.  What should I do?
A: Please email [email protected] detailing what you are suspecting.  More details you can give the better we can make our decision.
