Giving Your Right Brain a Regular Workout

Gift Original with Our Holiday Design Challenge

The holidays are here. Which means gifting. Which means helping people find super specific gifts featuring your designs. Which means helping you figure out which products and designs to promote. Having said that:

Over the next 7 weeks we’ll issue you a design challenge.

  • We give you a theme that’s trending this season.
  • We assign you a product like a tee, case, or pillow.
  • You use the theme to create a new work for that product.
  • You share your work using #GiftOriginal and #redbubble, on Instagram and Redbubble.
  • You could win $100 and get featured on the Redbubble homepage.

Each challenge will tie into one of our weekly sales promos. So in addition to having the opportunity to win cash and gain more exposure, you’ll also create relevant work for popular products that we’ll promote in our marketing campaigns. Which can lead to more sales for you. It’s a win-win-win-win-win-win.

See the current challenge below, and remember to keep checking this blog post as we will be updating it with each new challenge.  Now a message from our legal team. Read the full terms and conditions here.
