August design challenge
This August we’re stopping for a quick bite to eat and then stepping back in time for our weekly design challenges. To sweeten our design challenge prizes, August will be the first month the top 50 (previously top 25) designs will automatically be made available for sale in the Marketplace! Don’t forget to verify your Spoonflower account so your designs are ready to go if you find yourself in the winner’s circle.
Tacos and Burritos | Results Announced August 9
Are you team taco, team burrito or team I’ll eat it all? This week we’re giving the designer community something to taco ‘bout with a challenge inspired by two iconic Mexican meals. As you’re designing a repeating pattern, think of the toppings you’d add to your taco, the fillings that would make your burrito burst at the seams or the location where you’d devour your dinner. Entries will be previewed at the fat quarter size: 21” x 18”. Submissions close July 31 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Voting begins August 2. See official rules.

Have you ever wanted to know what it takes for a design challenge theme to make it into a weekly design challenge? Now’s your chance! For one week in August, we’re flipping the roles and letting you decide what our next design challenge theme will be! After all, who better to choose the design theme than the fine folks who are doing the designing! Earlier this month we received over 250 ideas (thank you!) after a call for themes was sent out to the community. With so many great ideas, narrowing the themes down to just 10 was no easy task. We can’t wait to see which theme joins our August design challenge line-up!
Now through 10 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, July 5, vote for your favorite design challenge themes below. You may vote for more than one theme but only one voting session per user is allowed. Be sure to join us back here on Friday, July 7 when we’ll announce the winning community choice theme along with the rest of August’s design challenge themes!
