Good morning and welcome back to the blog. I’m awake ridicously early so went for a sea-mist filled bike ride this morning to help blow out the cobwebs. This 5am waking up thing isn’t ideal, is this what being middle-aged is all about?
As ever I feel it my duty to report Clash related news of both the large and small variety and today’s is a bit different. In association with the official website (the less said about that ogre the better) it seems a ‘design a Clash t-shirt’ competition is off and running via Blank You Very Much with some serious bounty (booty?) on offer for the winner of the best design including $1,000 in cash and a Sound System box set. In fact if you enter the competition and win because you read about it here I just ask that you send me one (1) box set. Fair enough yes?
Here’s the official details – competition runs until August 4th.
One of the most legendary bands of all time, The Clash is taking over innovative design platform, Blank You Very Much for the month of July, to give their die-hard fans the opportunity to create a new t-shirt design, using the official assets of The Clash. The t-shirt design submissions will be critiqued by Blank You Very Much’s community, consisting over 50, 000 designers worldwide and then judged by the punk pioneers themselves.
The grand prize package that is to be rewarded to the winner includes a Sound System box set, a limited edition lithograph print signed by the band members and $1,000 Cash. The contest is open to international fans of The Clash and BYVM members, who are 18+ years of age.
You can enter, learn more and view the submissions so far via this link. I also recommend you read the comments section as there is some confusion about file types to submit etc which will save you time. So for the artistic amongst you I encourage you to enter, I can barely draw so will be watching from the sidelines. Good luck and thanks for dropping in.
