Step into your creativity with the upcoming Design-a-Sock Contest! Unleash your imagination and embark on a creative journey like no other.
Our annual Design-a-Sock Contest is a celebration of self-expression and the power of art. This year, we invite you to step into your creativity and let your ideas soar.
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 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. Whether you have a cherished sketch tucked away or a digital masterpiece waiting to be unveiled, this is your chance to see your artistic vision come to life on a pair of socks.
The winner of the contest will receive a prestigious $2,000 cash prize and the incredible opportunity to have their design featured in our future product line. Second and third place winners will be awarded $1,000 and $650 respectively. The entries will go through a public vote, with our Sock It to Me designers carefully selecting the finalists. The contest has seen incredible entries throughout the years, with previous winners leaving their mark on our socks and inspiring countless others. Get a glimpse of the remarkable creations from our 2022 winners below and shop other past designs that have been made into socks here!

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 31, 2023, at 5PM.
