Hello fellow gamers and WGGCon attendees!
As winter begins to wind down, we turn our thoughts to the upcoming convention season and the summerâ€™s culmination withÂ WGGCon IX. Yes, thatâ€™s right, this is our ninth WGGCon coming up. Can you believe it? Well, we can because after 8 years ofÂ coming up with t-shirt designs, Elliot and Tanya are tapped out of ideas. So, this year we are going to try a t-shirt design contest!
In the past, our shirts have visited the campgrounds, Dungeons & Dragons, the Forgotten Realms, Gen Con, Star Wars, Star TrekÂ and more. You can see a gallery of all past t-shirtsÂ here.
This year, one of you can come up with the design (and win a prize for your effortsâ€¦more on that below). As you can see, we like toÂ keep it to a single color to keep costs down, but if you have an idea that uses more colors, let us know. Feel free to use the front of theÂ shirt and you can even have your design encompass something on the back, so long as there is room for:
Croton Point Park, NY
Labor Day Weekend
(and room for our sponsorsâ€™ logos)
We would also like to incorporate our traditionalÂ logo/mascot, meeple with a hot dog on a roasting stick, somewhere in the design.
Please send your submissions in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or Photoshop (.psd) file formats to Elliot <firstname.lastname@example.org> by June 1,Â 2017. This gives us enough time to evaluate the designs, pick a winner and get back to you with any ideas that need tweaking. Elliot,Â Tanya and Alec will pick the winning design to be printed.
Besides getting to see your idea emblazoned across the chests of this yearâ€™s WGGCon attendees, the winner will receiveÂ two freeÂ shirtsÂ and the following four games:
Good luck and weâ€™re looking forward to your designs. Please contact us with any questions.
Elliot, Tanya, and Alec
