Design-a-Sock Contest Coming Soon!
Come Join The Party! What new character do you want to see on our Sock It to Me team?
You can’t spell party without “art,” and this year’s Design-A-Sock Contest is uniting the two! The theme is “Join the Party!” and it’s calling on you to celebrate with your self-expression and creativity, one design at a time.
Created by our Founder, Carrie Atkinson, the contest is an annual, international, and incredibly fun way to showcase your imagination. Hosted by Sock It To Me, Inc for over a decade, participants simply send in their unique design ideas that could be featured on Sock It To Me’s next pair of socks.
Artists of all ages are encouraged to participate, and several previous designs have come from kids – everyone from grandparents to mini artists are welcome to send in their stuff. (Any minor can participate with parent/guardian approval, so if you’re not into art, but some younger folks in your circle are, get them on board!)
May it be that prized birthday scribble hanging on your fridge, or your masterpiece in digital artistry that screams celebration, if you’ve ever wanted to see your own style on some socks, now is your chance!
The winner of the contest will receive a $2,000 cash prize, along with the chance to have their own design as part of a future product line. Second place will receive $1,000 and third place gets $650. All entries are narrowed down by a public vote, with the finalists being selected by the Sock It To Me designers and team.

If snail-mail is more your speed, entries can also be sent to 9592 SE Main St., Milwaukie, OR 97222. The call for submissions ends on July 29, 2022, at 5PM. If you have any additional questions or want to get some inspiration from seeing the previous winners, you can check out the FAQ page.
Good luck and have a blast! This is one party that will literally knock your socks off.
