I think many of us would agree that 2020, with still a bit more than 2 months left, has not been a great year. Bushfire, Pandemic, and OzBargain T-shirts for 2020 still have not been made. As our usual November IRL meetups, where we normally give out free T-shirts to our birthday parties, seem to be very unlikely, let's just move on and design an OzBargain T-shirt for 2021 instead!

Our last T-shirt design comp was 3ยฝ years ago and this one will be very similar. Fire up your mspaint.exe and send us your design to win cash or gift card prizes! Moreover, our next batch of OzBargain T-shirts will be bearing your winning design — hopefully sometime next year.

    Winners Announcement

    For this year we've received 282 designs from 124 participants. Here are the designs from the top 20 participants voted by OzBargain staff.

    1. pingunoots ($500 prize)
    2. revacious ($400 prize)
    3. adam567bell ($300 prize)
    4. evanscott2203 ($50)
    5. CaptainStingray ($50)
    6. haji ($50)
    7. JetBombat ($50)
    8. Joe23 ($50)
    9. SuperTight ($50)
    10. Superbad ($50)
    11. 18 ($50)
    12. enemyofaverage ($50)
    13. paperkut ($50)

    How scoring works:

    • Each moderator will give each of 282 submission a score between 1 and 10.
    • Moderator's score is then normalized (as some mods are more generous than the others)
    • Average from all mods will be the final score for that submission
    • Submissions would then be ordered from highest to lowest score

    I will contact the winners via PM emails later today on where shall I send the prizes to. I might leave contacting the supplier and manufacturing the T-shirts until after the Black Friday / Cyber Monday — it's going to be a hectic week next week.

    Again, thanks to all who participated! There is one more OzBargain comp coming up this week — stay tuned.

  • I'm very excited to see what we can come up with

  • good luck all!

  • Fam, using a Macbook here. Is there a MS Paint alternative ?

  • Just sent mine in :D

  • Hava sent

  • do i have to use paint?

    •  

      I thought that's OzBargainers' standard tool of trade? Feel free to use alternatives such as PhotoShop, Paint.net, Gimp, Inkscape or whatever. Preferred submission would be PNG file with transparency layer or SVG.

  • Ok, sorry i sent in twice, 2nd one contains PNG file.

  • For the last winner from the previous comp, who is GH? Gerry Harvey right?

  • Does the Design need to be print ready or is it just to give an idea, and will be finessed by someone with the skills to do so?

    •  

      It's okay to be an idea — many entries need a bit of fix to be ready for screen printing. However "unworkable" designs might also get a penalty.

  •  

    Click on go to comp and just takes you to front page.

  • Hope my entry has been received. Quite enjoyed doing it.

    There will be more OzBargain competitions coming up this week to be run in parallel to this one — stay tuned!

  • How do we get one of these t-shirts once they're available?

    • They are not sold normally, only given away as prizes or at meetups.

      • I've got several of them from previous meet-ups and competitions but without meet-ups this year, just wondering what the cost effective way to distribute them will be.

  • Hey Scotty, how many shirts do you typically make and how much are you paying per shirt? (Need a hand finding a good deal for them?) ๐Ÿ˜œ

    •  

      For the last batch ("Professionals") we made ~400 shirts, half went to Sydney and half went to Melbourne. Cost is around $11/shirt including DHL from China.

    Should definitely have one which says " Don't Forget the Cashback "

    • Maybe something along the lines of "Bought a $2.00 charging cable, forgot $0.02 cashback. Day ruined."

  • Hope you got my entry! Keen to see all the winning designs

  • My entry is in.

    Question - what font is the OzBargain logo? Impact?

  • I got a few entries in yesterday :)

    There was one literally coming through at 11:59PM. Moreover someone submitted an entry at 8:18AM this morning and unfortunately that one has to be rejected. Now gives the mods a week to sort out all the entries (282 of them) and the winner will be announced next week.

    Meanwhile today is the last day for the Face Mask competition — get your entry in!

  • Looking forward to the results announcement today!

  • has result come out yet?

  • Missed it by that much ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • Can't believe how similar my design was to @adam567bell's!!

    Great minds think alike for sure - I'm glad the mods appreciate the dictionary definition style; I'd love to see it on a t-shirt at some point (eventually)
