We are so excited to partner with CWDkids and the members of our amazing creative community to create a unique new line of childrenswear!
CWDkids has offered high-quality, unique childrenswear for over 25 years. They’re seeking our community’s fresh take on mermaid pajamas in this very special design challenge!
WHO: Spoonflower and CWDkids are teaming up for a very special fabric design challenge.
WHAT: Our Mermaids Design Challenge is designed to inspire fabric designs for fun, modern pajamas featuring a mermaid theme. The good folks at CWDkids will choose one winner from the top ten vote-getting designs. The winner will receive a $500 cash prize, and his or her winning design will have the chance to become part of the latest offering of CWDkids pajamas to be released in spring of 2016 through CWDkids.com. All top-ten winners will receive $50 in Spoondollar credit.
Please see the CWDkids Style Guide for information about what makes a successful childrenswear design.
WHEN: The design deadline is May 19, 2015. Voting will take place May 21 – May 26, 2015. The winner chosen from the popularly-voted top ten designs will be announced on May 28, 2015.
HOW: To enter, create your own Spoonflower account, upload an original fabric design to the account, and enter the design in the Mermaids contest using the drop-down menu for entering contests. Designs should be created especially for this contest, and all artwork must be your original work. Since the winning design will be featured on CWDkids' pajamas, designs should feature no more than 8 colors, and design elements should be roughly .75" to 3.5" (approximately 2 cm to 9 cm). Please see the CWDkids Style Guide for additional information and photo examples.
A note about your design file: If your design wins, CWDkids will need a vector file to adapt for their printing purposes. We encourage you to prepare your original file for this, but you should create a copy of your file saved to 150 dpi to upload to Spoonflower. Your Spoonflower preview will be viewed at 150 dpi in a fat-quarter size (21” x 18”).
