Contest #2: Design a Sticker for Jetcomx and Win a Triko Tee, an Insight Tee, and a Mishka 59/50 New Era Fitted Hat

Congratulations to Billi Kid for winning Contest #1! Billi Kid’s design will be the new banner for the site. With his amazing design, Billi Kid won a Bonafide Icon NYC Exploited t-shirt. Now that Contest #1 is done, it’s time to explain Contest #2.

General Description: We want you to design us a sweet looking image with 3”x3” dimensions. Your image will then be turned into a sticker. Be as creative and artistic as possible. Browse around Flickr and Deviantart if you need some ideas, then fire up Photoshop. When you think you’re done, email the image to submissions@jetcomx.com. After approximately two weeks, the best design will be selected and the creator will win the prize. See below for details on the prize.

Specifics: The design must contain the word “jetcomx” somewhere. We prefer that you send in vectorized designs, but we will consider any type of design. This is simply because vectorized designs are much easier to turn into stickers. Your image must be 3”x3”. You can send us a .jpeg, .png, or .tiff. If you are chosen as the winner, you must send us the .PSD.

Prize: Jason and the rest of the crew over at JackThreads.com were kind enough to supply the prize for this contest, which retails for $100 even. The winner will receive the following:

Right now, you may be scratching your head, wondering what exactly constitutes “sticker culture.” Well, sticker culture can be categorized as an off-shoot of graffiti, wheat pasting, and other forms of street art. It’s fresh, ground-breaking, and setting the street art bar just a little bit higher. No longer bound to legendary figures like Shepard Fairey of “Andre the Giant Has a Posse” fame, sticker designs come from all manner of places and all kinds of skill. From hand drawn pieces on USPS labels, to high-quality vinyl prints, artists all across the globe create and trade stickers with one another.
