On July 1st every year, huge corporations tend to pack away their Rainbow flags until June comes back around again. But Pride is a YEAR-LONG celebration. That’s why we’re making our Pride Design Challenge open all year round, like our main Threadless challenge! We want you to flood our Marketplace with designs that express free love and inclusivity.
Pride means many things to many people, but we want to see how YOU interpret it through the lens of your art. Channel the rebellious spirit that sparked the Pride movement of the late 1960s. Turn gender norms on their heads. Portray love in ways that aren’t typically seen on TV or in mainstream media. Most importantly, send an inclusive message that resonates with the LGBTQIA+ community.
Don’t forget, with Threadless Causes, you can donate a portion of your earnings from the sale of your new design to Pride/LGBTQIA+ charities doing critical work around the world. For this Cause, Threadless is matching donations up to $100,000! If you’re interested in joining our fundraising efforts, refer to our Help Page to learn how Causes works.
This contest does not currently have a submission deadline. All designers printed will earn up to $20 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments), and one winner will receive a $250 Threadless gift code.
