Redbubble Monster Challenge

They crawl out of dark shadows, hide beneath your bed and slither out of your closets. Monsters.

Starting on Friday, September 6 and running through Sunday, September 29, Redbubble, an online marketplace where artists and designers can sell their work more easily is challenging artists to delve into the darker parts of their imagination to create a work of art featuring their very own monster. It can be fearsome, frightening, fascinating, furry, funny or just plain terrifying.

The winner of Redbubble’s Monster Challenge will bag themselves $1000, 2nd place will get $500 and 3rd place takes home $100. Each of the winners will also get their design on a Redbubble product of their choice (up to $100), plus an extra cool monster surprise.

Redbubble will name up to 10 finalists, with the winner being chosen by the public. Voting on the top 10 designs will begin on Wednesday, October 2.

Redbubble (www.redbubble.com) is a global online marketplace for artists and designers that uses print-on-demand technology to sell artwork on a range of quality products including American Apparel t-shirts, Uncommon Goods iPhone/iPad cases and canvas prints. Just upload your work, choose a blank canvas and set your price. Redbubble takes care of the printing, packaging and shipping. Every day, hundreds of new designs are uploaded to the site that are equal parts beautiful, bizarre, edgy and hilarious. Founded in 2006, Redbubble has become one of the world’s largest and most diverse online marketplaces, with 250,000 global artists selling work to people in over 150 countries. In 2012, the company had sales of $25 million, with 100% compounded annual growth.
