A challenge from Redbubble

In the darkest shadows, the deepest depths of the ocean, under beds and in closets, in graveyards and forests lurk the kinds of creatures that could strike fear into your soul. Or at least make a small amount of wee come out of you. They represent our darkest fears and they frighten and fascinate us in equal measure.

For our latest challenge, we want you to dive into the darker parts of your imagination to create a work featuring your very own monster. It can be fearsome, frightening, fascinating, furry, funny or just plain frickin terrifying.

Prizes

The winner of the Monsters 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.

Important Rules

Designs that don't meet the challenge criteria will be removed so please make sure your design covers the following:

  • Your design must be Monster related - scary or hairy, big or small, a world of monsters or just one lurking under the bed, whatever your imagination can dream up, that’s your choice - but there must be at least 1 monster.
  • The design needs to be entirely new, so it can't have been added to Redbubble or any other site, platform or publication prior to the end of the challenge.
  • It has to be uploaded to Redbubble and available publicly for sale (on any product), as well as submitted as an image with a non-transparent background via Strutta.
  • Your design must be original and can not use any intellectual property or publicity rights that don't belong to you.

Challenge submissions begin September 6th and end September 30th. Up to 10 finalists will be chosen for public voting which will begin on October 3rd.
