Calling all you TEE-riffic and PIN-credible designers and creators out there!  We know you all have great ideas, so we want your help to come up with the 2017 DI Alabama Shirt and Pin designs.

What kind of DI shirt would you love to wear?  What kind of pin would you love to trade at Global Finals? Get together with your team and start generating ideas today!  You have one month to send us your ideas.

Full rules and details are below, or you can download the contest in the form of an Instant Challenge!

Submission Deadline: January 9th at 11:59pm – Deadline has past and submissions are now closed.

Design Information

  • Teams can submit designs at any degree of completion, from simple sketch to fully fleshed-out design.
  • While written descriptions of designs are welcome, all submissions must include at least a visual sketch of the idea.
  • Designs will be considered for the creativity of the ideas, not for the artistic skill used.
  • Designs with themes related to the state of Alabama, DI, and/or creativity in general are more likely to be chosen.
  • Designs including our traditional “phone” or “DIAL” themes are welcome, but not required.
  • Be original!  We’re looking for truly creative and original designs, so don’t copy something you’ve seen elsewhere. You are awesome and can create something special all on your own!
  • Remember: Pins are traded to teams from all over the world at Global Finals. Successful pin designs will be interesting to all teams, not just the ones in our state.

  • Regardless of the artistic quality of the submissions, all chosen designs will be adjusted or recreated by a professional artist for use on the final products.
  • By submitting a design, you grant DI Alabama the perpetual right to use your design on products that will be on sale at our Tournaments and via our website.
