UPDATE: Here are the entries. Please vote by liking your favorite design - please only choose ONE!
First of all I want to thank you all so much for making the webstore such a huge success. You have helped fund new equipment, office supplies, and reorders and that's the kind of support a company needs to keep moving forward. I hope your purchases have arrived on time and fit exactly as you hoped!
The store is selling through its final items so before we reorder once more I want to give the talented followers of RBM a chance to design the next tee we will be selling. So we've set up this little contest to do just that!
On Friday, May 15 submit your artwork to SUPPORT@REELBEARMEDIA.COM to enter. Please read the rules below before submitting. The winner will receive a GRAND PRIZE of $500 and their print sold in the Reel Bear Media webstore.
Good luck and have fun. Can't wait to see your work.
1. HOW TO ENTER
Starting Friday, May 15 you can submit your artwork by emailing your entry to SUPPORT@REELBEARMEDIA.COM. Please put your first and last name in the subject line of your email, your mailing address in the body and your artwork attached to the email.
2. YOUR FILE / DESIGN
Contestants must submit a hi-res PDF of their design. The document must be at least 12'' x 12'' at 300dpi. Design must be suitable for print onto a BLACK tee. Only Reel Bear Media elements, logos and font-likeliness can be used to aid your design. No outside branding should be used in your design. We are looking for a simple design that represents Reel Bear Media in a new way. Be creative.
Here is a link to the official logo.
Contestants have until Saturday, May 30 2015 at 11:59PM EST to submit their artwork.

5. SO HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Basically, contestants create an original design for a Reel Bear Media t-shirt, submit them, people will "like" their favorites on the Facebook page, the artwork with the most likes will be purchased by Reel Bear Media for $500 and will be available in the webstore this Summer.
