design a t-shirt for queen

Legendary rock band Queen is preparing for its 40th birthday – and they need a hand from your creative selves.

In partnership with Talenthouse, Queen is offering fashion designers, illustrators and graphic designers the chance to become part of history by creating a t-shirt design featuring the band’s famous logo.

The selected t-shirt will be sold in Queen’s online stores, on the band’s official site and on the Mercury Phoenix Trust website. The winning design will also be featured on the band’s Facebook page, which has over 7.5 million fans.

All proceeds will be donated to fighting AIDS worldwide through the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the charity set up in Freddie Mercury’s name – so not only will you be getting global recognition for your design, you’ll also be helping those less fortunate!

The winning artist will receive $1,500 and a further 10 designers who receive the most votes will share a prize pool of $1,500. All submitted designs will be reviewed and judged by Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Submissions close 19 April 2011 so head over to the Talenthouse website for all the details.

Queen will also be collaborating with Talenthouse on two other creative initiatives – stay tuned for more details!

Here’s a little ditty to inspire you to greatness…
