I've enjoyed the work done in the Character of the week, so I thought
perhaps some of you would like to submit a design for our t-shirt contest.
I hope this is the right place to post this.

We invite you to submit a design for the t-shirt contest for Steamcon
II, an annual steampunk convention held in Seattle WA, November 19th - 21st 2010.

Using our theme of steampunk in the weird, weird west, come up
with a suitable design for the official t-shirt for Steamcon II.
Robotic sharp shooters, mystical shaman, or airship stage coaches?
What would best represent steampunk in the frontier days of the
American west? Steampunk in this context should be steam era science fiction/fantasy.

The shirt should say "Steamcon II" in roman numerals and a serif font. Any
other text is optional, but it can have the date and "Weird, Weird
West" as well. Designs will be printed on a dark colored t-shirt
either black or dark brown, so take this in to account when
designing. Please do not use any copyrighted character/s, unless you
are the copyright holder and can give us the rights to print.

Who is eligible: Anyone who wishes to submit a t-shirt design.

Deadline: Submissions must be emailed to t-shirtcontest@steamcon.org by September 10th.

Design specs: Full color, Size: anywhere from 8" x 8" up to 8.5" x
11". Initial submissions should be jpegs of 100 DPI. The final art
will need to be Photoshop files with the layers or bitmaps or tiff or
comparable; at 300 DPI. We will request those of the winner after
judging takes place.

Reward: A membership to Steamcon II, a pair of concert tickets
for the Saturday concert at Steamcon II featuring Abney Park,
two free t-shirts and your name on the chests of steampunks everywhere!

(If contest winner is unable to attend Steamcon 2,
all rewards can be transferred to Steamcon 3 or they
may receive current equivalent monetary compensation.)

If you have any questions, please email info@steamcon.org.
