made-by logoFancy yourself a green-minded designer-activist? If submitting your T-shirt designs to  Threadless Loves Green and Artevist’s contests has gotten passe for you, here’s MADE-BY — a new contest and a chance at eco T-shirt design fame!

Put on by EDUN Live, the green and fair trade T-shirt line co-founded by Bono,  MADE-BY invites you to come up with a T-shirt design around the theme “fashion with respect for people and planet.” Why should you enter? The first to third-place winners will get EDUN gift certificates for $250, $150, and $100, respectively.

Plus, the first place winner’ll get 5 free T-shirts of his or her design and the happy knowledge those designs are being worn by fashion-forward eco-activists — and that part of the proceeds from the sale of those T-shirts will go to Conservation Cotton Initiative, which invests in sustainably harvested cotton grown in African communities.

Submit your design on the MADE-BY site by Oct. 31. Then get everyone to vote for you online between Nov. 1 – 8. Top 10 designs with the most votes will be selected as finalists, then judged by a panel. You’ll find out if you’re the lucky winner by Dec. 16. Good luck!
