The future is now! And with deviantWEAR’s newest Design Challenge, the past is now, too! Don't let the present slip away from you. Zoom over to deviantWEAR to enter your creation into Retro Future: The Future That Never Was.
Participation is easy!
You come up with potential designs for our deviantWEAR t-shirts.
Deviants vote on their favorite designs.
Judges choose based on the highest-voted submissions.
Artists of the winning submissions get cash and their designs printed on t-shirts for all to see!
This time around, step back into the Retro Future and design a t-shirt that captures the essence of idealistic imagery of the future as imagined in the pre-1970s era. Skyscrapers that round to a bulb at their top, ringed with futuristic bands for extra support. Flying cars that drive their silver-suited inhabitants to their jobs on Mars. Sleek, spherical household appliances that do everything from shower you to cook your dinner in a matter of instants. You tell us!

Prizes, prizes, prizes!
Two winners will be selected! Each winner receives $1,500 cash and 20 units of their t-shirt! Plus, each of the winning designs will be sold in deviantWEAR. You could see your design from the past worn by someone in the future.
Not a designer?
Just like with the last Design Challenge, you still have a chance to make an impact and determine the future of deviantWEAR's designs. All throughout the contest, keep an eye on the Retro Future contest category. To keep things fair, we'll show you a random assortment for you to browse through the submitted designs.
If you see a design that would make a great shirt, click "I Would Wear This" on the deviation to cast your vote for the entry. View the entries!
Worried about cheaters?
Don't worry. When the contest is over, deviantART will review the source of all entry data (including but not limited to username and IP data) for suspicious activity and remove fraudulent votes. Also, just because a design has the most votes doesn't mean it automatically wins. The 75 designs receiving the most votes will move to the final judging round, where our panel of experts will pick two of the hottest Retro Future t-shirts to produce.
But hurry into the Retro Future! The deadline for entries is January 25, 2012, and voting ends February 8, 2012. Submit your designs and cast your votes now!
