Neo-Futurist T-shirt Design Contest
Do you have a great design idea for the next Neo-Futurist t-shirt? This fall, enter the Neo-Futurist t-shirt design contest where the newest and coolest t-shirt will be chosen to sell in The Neo-Futurarium’s merchandise store.
The search is on for the best, most awesome, most original Neo-Futurist t-shirt designs that Chicago has to offer. Something befitting a company that makes “theater that rides a unicorn into a frothy sweat and then shoots it and guts it to sleep inside.”
Three finalists will be chosen internally from all submissions before it’s left to the fans to vote and determine the winning entry.
What do I get for sharing my genius design?
The winner receives a $100 cash prize, one Neo-Futurist Maven Membership (value of $100), a complimentary t-shirt featuring their winning design, two invitations to attend the annual company gala (tickets for the gala are normally $80 each), and two free tickets to any Neo-Futurist performance.
That’s not all!
The runner up receives a t-shirt featuring their own original design plus two free tickets to any Neo-Futurist performance. Who said it doesn’t pay to come in second?
