Those of you who have been around Mozilla for a while might remember the Firefox 3 t-shirt design contest that we held nearly three years ago… it was quite an amazing experience, with so much creative energy pouring in from passionate fans around the world. Not only did we end up with an awesome t-shirt, but we also had a blast. So, with Firefox 4 around the corner we simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go for another round. We’re opening up the process again and asking the community to help us create the official Firefox 4 t-shirt, with a new design challenge hosted on the Creative Collective:
The process is similar to what we’ve done in the past: After the submission period ends (March 28th), an internal team at Mozilla will review all designs and select the strongest 5 that best respond to the brief. These will then be re-posted online for your vote — with the final winner chosen by the community and printed as the official Firefox 4 t-shirt – a limited edition item featured in the Mozilla Store and distributed to thousands of contributors. For more details, design inspiration, rules and resources, please visit the main challenge page. And if you have any artsy friends or know of anyone that would be interested in joining the fun — please help us spread the word. Even a simple tweet goes a long way.
As you know, t-shirts are a pretty big deal around here… and so is Firefox 4. So, needless to say that we’re really excited to see what the community comes up with. I know it will be nothing short of pure awesome.
