Winning Artist Receives $2,500 and Other Prizes for T-shirt Design

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2013) - Threadless, the global design community, has announced the winning designs from their t-shirt design challenge with indie/pop duo Tegan and Sara. The four-week design challenge, launched on August 1, 2013, called upon Threadless' community of artists and art enthusiasts to create and vote on original t-shirt artwork to celebrate the release of Tegan and Sara's seventh studio album, Heartthrob

After more than 253,000 votes on over 400 design submissions, "I'm Not Your Hero" by Casandra Ng Hwee Yin of Serdang, Malaysia was chosen as the grand prize winner. For her winning design, the artist received $2,500 cash, a $500 Threadless gift code, a Tegan and Sara prize pack that includes a signed limited edition complete vinyl collection box set, and her design sold as a t-shirt on Threadless.com.

"The Tegan and Sara design challenge has brought impassioned fans and artists to Threadless to create and vote on new designs," said Todd Lido, Marketing Director at Threadless. "We are thrilled that the partnership with Warner Brothers Records has allowed for a new fanbase to be exposed to the Threadless community, and are looking forward to introducing new artists with them in the future."

Along with Hwee Yin's grand prize design, two additional t-shirt designs from this challenge will be available on Threadless' website at Threadless.com/bands.

To date, Threadless maintains a community of 2.7 million artists and art enthusiasts, and has paid out over $8,744,411 to more than 1,200 artists worldwide.
