Storyville and Gambit partner for a T-shirt contest

Posted By on Thu, Sep 18, 2014 at 2:11 PM

You've got your black-and-gold T-shirt, your Hubig's Pies T-shirt and, just maybe, your "I Got Bourbon Faced On Sh*t Street" T-shirt (we won't judge). Now, Gambit has partnered with Storyville to create the official Gambit T-shirt. The creator of the winning design gets $1,000, and the shirt will be sold by Storyville.

"We are looking for designs that don't just look like a generic logo tee," says Storyville co-owner Natalie Naquin Harvey. "We want something unique that really captures how much Gambit is an iconic part of New Orleans life. We really want this to be a design that people all over New Orleans want to wear because they love New Orleans, they love Storyville and they love Gambit. The artwork must be original, and hand-drawn fonts are a huge plus."

Popularity counts: social media support, including Facebook likes, is 1/3 of the score, and the remaining 2/3 comes from the Storyville staff. See the complete rules and formatting guidelines here.

Storyville has partnered with LSU, Tulane and ULL for contests to create officially licensed merchandise. "We've had great results from these contests, both from the designers and our customers," says Harvey, who hopes to partner with other local organizations such as City Park and the Audubon Nature Institute. "We love these New Orleans institutions, and it would be such an honor to work with them," she says.

In the meantime, Harvey looks forward to seeing the designs this contest inspires.

"it's such a specific contest theme, yet so broad at the same time," she says. "You can make it whatever you want. ... We can't wait to see what people come up with."

Submissions are accepted here through Sunday, Sept. 28. The winner will be announced Friday, Oct. 3.

Multiple entries are allowed, and there is no entry fee.
