Obey your T-shirt: Metropark lets shoppers design their own gear

You WILL put this logo in your contest submission.

Are you completely sick of seeing an army of Christian Audigier and Affliction shirts when you hit up Vegas nightclubs? Then do something about it.

For the third year, Metropark (with Nevada locations at Fashion Show, Miracle Mile, Town Square and Mandalay Place) and the Obey clothing line are giving customers the chance to put their artwork on a T-shirt that’s sure to pop up on people all over the Strip.

The Public Works contest invites designers, doodlers and art class novices to submit original T-shirt designs that incorporate the Obey logo in virtually any medium, from photographs and paintings to illustrations and even sculpture. The logos for Obey, the clothing line from guerilla illustrator and graphic designer Shepard Fairey (known for his pop art portrait of Obama above the word “HOPE”), feature a black and white image of the French wrestler and actor Andre the Giant.

One winner each for the men’s and women’s lines will have their design produced by Obey exclusively for Metropark, as well as taking home gifts and prizes.

The first place winner receives a $400 cash prize and licensing fee from Obey for the winning design plus $300 in Obey merchandise and a $500 Metropark gift card. Four runners up get $200 in Obey clothing and a $200 Metropark gift card. Deadline for submissions is June 30.

For complete contest details and to submit your design, go to http://www.metroparkusa.com/publicworks.

UPDATE: The contest deadline has been extended until July 19.
