The Star Trek Design Contest, spearheaded by Threadless, is underway now. The idea is for fans to turn Star Trek's most-iconic moments into original t-shirt designs. You're probably thinking, "Khaaaaaaaan!" or Tribbles or the Enterprise or the Vulcan split-fingered greeting -- and you're on the right track. Take a look at one of the cool designs already submitted:

Prizes will include:

  • $2,000 cash
  • $500 Threadless gift code
  • Plus, anyone whose design is printed, including the grand prize winner, will receive up to $7 on each t-shirt of their design sold on

And, yes, there are important rules, among them:

  • Design must be orginal artwork.
  • Characters from Star Trek may be used, but mashups, parodies or references to other characters are not allowed.
  • No adult references (sex, drugs, alcohol, violence, profanity, gambling, etc.) will be allowed.

The contest will run through January 11th, 2016 until midnight US/Central time. Go to to enter.
