Geek girls, your moment is now. ThinkGeek and Her Universe, two companies very familiar to Star Trek fans, are joining forces to launch a Year of the Fan Girl design contest called “Make It Sew.” The contest starts today and challenges fans to submit Star Trek-themed tee-shirt designs, based on any of the Trek television shows, with the winner to receive $500 and have their design printed by Her Universe and featured on apparel sold by ThinkGeek.
“The Year of the Fangirl is a campaign celebrating female fans,” said Her Universe co-founder Ashley Eckstein. “We have so many budding designers with incredible talent and ideas, and I wanted to give fangirls a platform to design professionally for Her Universe. I am thrilled to be partnering with ThinkGeek and Star Trek for this exciting (“Make It Sew”) contest!”
“The more mainstream that ‘geek’ becomes, the more opportunity we have to bring fans, both men and women, what they want,” said ThinkGeek spokesperson Steve Zimmermann. “Working with Her Universe has been a great opportunity.”
Submissions must be made by October 14, and the winner will be announced on October 21. Click HERE for additional details about the “Make It Sew” contest.
