UNIQLO is once again holding its annual UT Grand Prix, a design contest that uses T-shirts as a canvas for graphics, messages and other forms of free expression. This competition, which includes cash prizes, is a global showcase for artists seeking recognition for their work. The theme for the UT Grand Prix 2012 is Coca-Cola, one of the world’s most valuable brand.
Entries will be accepted from Monday, August 4. The top 10 designs, as chosen by UNIQLO, The Coca-Cola Company and through a popular vote, will be sold as UT designs at UNIQLO stores throughout the world.
UNIQLO invites talented, creative individuals across the globe to submit their own designs for this contest, which was established in 2005 to provide support and inspiration to all artists.
Work your creative juices and submit an entry for a chance to win a fabulous prize!
