Contest: Design LittleBigPlanet Karting T-Shirt For PAX Prime

Sharon Kapitula's Avatar Posted by Platform Marketing, SCEA

Hello Craftworld enthusiasts! Today, we’re announcing a contest for the LittleBigPlanet community, where you’ll have the chance to create this year’s PAX Prime LittleBigPlanet Karting T-Shirt!

We’re constantly amazed by the unique levels you all come up with, and we can’t wait to see your creative talents put toward this T-Shirt design.

LittleBigPlanet Karting Shirt Design Contest

The rules are simple; the shirt can be any color and must:

  • Contain a Classic (non-costumed, knitted) Sackboy
  • Include a Kart
  • Use only 1-3 colors
  • Utilize up to 3 areas on the template

LittleBigPlanet Karting Shirt Design Contest

To participate, visit the contest site

Also, our artists can rework what you submit, so even if your drawing skills are not the greatest, go ahead and send in your creation! Winning designs will be selected by LBPK’s production team. We will take the winner’s design and place it on the exclusive T-Shirt that will be handed out at PAX Prime in Seattle.

The winner will, of course, receive their winning shirt. Additionally, they will receive a 3G PlayStation Vita unit, a copy of LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, and a copy of LittleBigPlanet Karting. Five runners up will also receive the winning T-shirt and a copy of LittleBigPlanet Karting. The contest is open now through August 8th, so submit away!

What do you guys mean by “Contain a Classic (non-costumed, knitted) Sackboy?”

@1 – They mean you need to have a Sackboy in the design. But that Sackboy cannot be wearing any costumes/accessories, like when you first start playing LittleBigPlanet.

@1 – that question should automatically disqualify you. WOW!

Apparently this contest is not open in my region. This is for North America right? Just need to make sure, thanks.

How can it only contain 3 colors if sackboy himself is going to be at least 3 and a kart needs to be added?

    We want you to be creative, so you can have fun with the color scheme. We’re not looking for you to copy/paste a Sackboy image from the internet, but instead to create your own. That means the entire drawing can be in one color, or mix of a few :)

Is text permitted in the design?

    You can do whatever you want as long as it has the Sackboy and Kart!

can the entire shirt have a background design? aside from the 3 colors.

Please use a plain background (on any color shirt). You can put designs in up to 3 of the outlined areas

This is to ensure we can actually print and create the winning entry!

I think you should get the winner a trip to PAX. (With a +1 guest of course)

When it says “Utilize up to 3 areas on the template” that means 3 of the yellow outlined rectangles can be used correct? And what shirt are we suppose to use, those images you guys provided or do we draw our own shirt from scratch?

And thank you for another contest! Whatever happened to the Sly Cooper Treasure Design Contest?

    Sharon Kapitula said:

    July 27th, 10:38 am


    Yes, plan your design in up to 3 of those areas (they are the printable regions)

    You can either use the template on the contest site, or your own shirt. We just want to see your desired layout

D-Squad3 said:

July 27th, 10:34 am

Also, does the shirt color count as one of the 3 colors we’re allowed to use or no?

    Sharon Kapitula's Avatar

    Sharon Kapitula said:

    July 27th, 10:39 am

    Nope! The shirt color does not count as one of the 3 design colors. This is where you can have some fun :)

D-Squad3 said:

July 27th, 10:41 am

And how complicated can one design be? For example, if we were to put text in one of the outlined areas, can we also draw stuff around/behind the text or can it only be the text by itself?

    You can do whatever you want as long as you only use 1-3 colors and follow the stated rules :)

Thanks for another contest! Love being apart of games creation in this way. I know it’s a little off topic, but can you please provide some info about the Sly Cooper Treasure Design Contest? The European Winners have already been announced. Is there any word on the US contest and their winners? I hate to ask under this topic, but I don’t know where else to direct this question. Your reply is much appreciated.

G3_MO123 said:

July 27th, 11:02 am

TANZEB123 said:

So can we put in the littlebigplanet karting logo or the pax logo on the shirt?

3 colors sounds like a good challenge! I have one question though- are we strictly limited to three colors or may we use different shades of just three colors?

Shadowbhiemes said:

July 27th, 3:04 pm

Can we use different shades of three colors or is it strictly just three solid colors we must us? I like a challenge, so this will be fun!

Redikol said:

Submitted my entry, I put a good 4 hours of work into it. I noticed the contest ends a day before my birthday…so, one can hope..haha. Thanks for the opportunity!

Peachyguy said:

Eraser35 said:

why does Canada always get screwed on this stuff

carrillo40 said:

July 27th, 5:39 pm

in the official rules it says “The design must include a classic (brown with no costume) Sackboy, and a Kart. “-that means brown is one of the 3 colors or is it three colors besides brown.?

also would white count as a color?

DarkOne_PR said:

July 27th, 7:38 pm

WHAT! No Puerto Rico again?! Seriously…. we are in the fre.aking limbo in this blog when it comes to contest always. not frea.king fair. I really wanted to give it a shot at this….

ReptileHand said:

I am very PO’d!

I was disappointed I didn’t get invited to the beta… or so I thought….

Constantly checking my e-mail everyday, I find nothing, with hope, I found out that Joystiq was handing out codes 4 days before the beta ends.

The next day I check my spam folder out of curiosity and what do you know, out of all the e-mails, the LBP karting beta had to be in there (sent to me on July 10th!). I would have never thought it would go in there since Playstation is in my Spam filter.

I am enjoying my hands on time with it, but I would’ve liked it better had I been notified earlier.

I can’t re-wind time or anything. Just a little frustrated.

If only I had some sort of artistic ability! Oh well haha

Nitrosonic0 said:

July 27th, 10:37 pm

hmm…, im not an artist either. therefore, i won’t be entering the contest. i am still however enjoying the LBPK beta. well, i was enjoying it until i ran into a hacker that nearly screwed my system up. this guy was doing some kind of invincibility trick. i forgot who he called himself but i now know to avoid him. still, i do have high hopes for this game. just gotta stay away from hackers XD

P.S. Sony, im still bugging you for Sonic avatars!

codibear8383 said:

July 27th, 11:29 pm

Are we allowed to include the word ‘PAX’ in the design?

Elvick_ said:

July 27th, 11:46 pm

I was going to enter… but I live in Canada. ):

I have a hilarious idea for a shirt. A shirt I want. D;

I do have a question, because I’m curious what the answer is. Is the 3 color only rule for each separate image? Or the entire shirt? Because, just with the logo, that’s 3 colors. Sackboy makes 4…

xKakashi209x said:

July 28th, 2:38 am

i have a question regarding the rules. When you say you can just have the whole drawing in one color or up to three does that mean the final color scheme you created are going to be used for the shirt or will they add more color after? One more question about the template. Is the one in the back left corner the same one in the front right corner? Thanks !

I have everything planned out in my head and now I just need to draw it out. I can’t wait.

jml_809 said:

July 28th, 2:25 pm

How about this, they instead do a new ModNation Racers instead of a game which is exactly the same except with Sackboy slaped all over it, Don’t confuse me I like LittleBigPlanet but I don’t why they can’t do another ModNation instead of LittleBigPlanet Karting.

JoseOmatic said:

July 28th, 2:37 pm

If it’s on a black shirt does white still count as a color? Cause I know when screen printing on a dark shirt you have to use white as a base.

DOPEY469 said:

July 28th, 10:30 pm

does sackboy’s skin count as one color?

DOPEY469 said:

July 28th, 10:38 pm

And i do not understand the first rule, sackboy cant be knitted?

DOPEY469 said:

July 28th, 10:43 pm

One last thing you guy should do is to put the winning shirt in the game! that would be cool! :D good luck to anyone who might be entering this contest!
