HOW TO DESIGN
Please use the template available here
There is no limit on the technique, designs can be hand drawn, designed on a computer – whichever works. Colour scheme must be limited to 5 colours.
Avoid complex details or gradients as these are quite difficult to translate onto a sock.
AND THE WINNER IS…
Creativity is the key. Organizers will be looking for designs that embrace the best of Galway’s features and vibes. Irish Socksciety will pick a design or a part of it to be produced on the socks (it may get changed slightly going into production).
Socks will be added to Irish Socksciety range and info about the winner will be included on the tag.
IF I SUBMIT A DESIGN, WILL YOU OWN THE RIGHTS TO IT?
No, we don’t own the rights to the entered designs. Once the winner is chosen, we contact the artist before moving forward with production. We will own the unlimited copyright to the winning design we agree to produce on socks. There is no additional compensation to the winner beyond the prize.
IF MY DESIGN WINS, WILL I GET A PAIR OF MY SOCKS?
Yes. If your design is produced, we will give you ten pairs of your designed socks.
Organizers will pick one winner of the 1st prize and two winners of the spot prizes.
Once announced, the organizers’ decision will be final and no appeals will be accepted.
The winning design will become the intellectual property of Irish Socksciety and Irish Socksciety will hold the unlimited copyright to it.
Photoshoot with Julia Dunin Photography will take place in Galway. Photos will be used for promotional purposes of Irish Socksciety.
