In the span of ten days, we saw tons of winner-worthy designs come through our inbox, making it extremely difficult to narrow the 2,000 or so submissions down to just 50 designs. When we finally did, we plastered those top 50 on a wall, brought in hundreds of dollars’ worth of catered bites, beer and wine, and then invited Portland’s coolest of cool – including spray-paint artist and DJ Matt Stanger – to join us for one hoppin’ shindig.
Oh wow, so many great submissions have come in from folks vying for First Place in our 2nd International Design-A-Sock Contest. Not only that, they have come from places near and far, like Australia, Canada, Israel, Poland, and the Philippines. It just gives us this warm, fuzzy feeling to know that there are people all across the world who are joining us in talent and spirit. We thought you’d enjoy seeing a few of the buzz-worthy designs we have received. Remember, First Place winner gets $500 cash plus 10 pairs of socks and bragging rights, since the winning design joins our line of socks already on the market.
We want pictures of YOU wearing Sock It to Me socks. Even more brilliant: if the picture conveyed a notable landmark (for example, in front of Big Ben, peering at the Golden Gate Bridge, or climbing a mountain in the Himalayas). That way we can drop your photo on a global map and show where in the world you are… and where in the world SITM socks are being worn! www.sockittome.com
