We want to have a T-shirt Design contest! Please help us design a DCM t-shirt!

We want to have a T-shirt Design contest! Please help us design a DCM t-shirt! 

We would like a high quality .jpg or photoshop file (we use photoshop elements). The image should be approx 10"x10" (think of the space across your upper torso/chest). Please do not submit small images as if you scale those bigger, the proportion does not maintain and you get the 'jaggies'. 

If your design is chosen, you will get a free, regular DCM weekend!

We would like all designs submitted by Aug 1, 2015. Email files to dcm@dallascraftersmarathon.com. Please include in the subject line 'DCM T-SHIRT CONTEST'.

The design can be text, images etc. Keep it copyright free (don't steal others images off the net :), Keep in mind this will be printed so small text and items may not be legible.
