Musician, fashion icon and all-around artist Lady Gaga has invited fans to design a t-shirt to be sold during her 2012 to 2013 Born This Way Ball World Tour. Fans didn’t have a lot of time to submit designs, as the contest started on March 14 and ran through March 19. Winners are expected to be announced shortly.
According to rules, contest entrants needed to be at least 13 years of age and hold an online account through Facebook or similar social media website. Ten winners will be selected who will walk away with $500 each. Fans were permitted to use images of Lady Gaga, but only from a pre-selected list approved for the contest. Initial submissions will be judged by Lady Gaga’s merchandising team. Final winners will be determined by Lady Gaga herself.
Given Lady Gaga’s history of shocking and innovating, one can only imagine wide range of submissions received by the contest. Given her tendency to never look the same twice, you can bet that the contest entries are vastly different, one to the next. Based on the name of the tour and resulting contest, it’s probably safe to assume that there will be a good number of entries based on and inspired by her popular Born This Way video.
