Help Blipshift Create The Next Great Jalopnik T-Shirt

It’s that time of year again where we partner with our friends at Blipshift to help you help us bring the greatest t-shirt of all time to the masses in time for Black Friday.

You’ve seen our two classic designs, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to design the next perfect car t-shirt that everyone will want to enjoy (and that incorporates a Jalopnik logo).


The winner could get all sorts of fun prizes!

How To Enter*

We’ll be looking for a design that embodies Jalopnik’s weird sense of humor as well as car culture in general. While previous shirts focused in on specific memes or jokes, we’re open to any great car t-shirt.

If you’re an artist, submit your design and proposal in the form of a comment below with an image or images (all art must be your own creation). If you’re not an artist, but have a great idea, submit it without art and if we like it we’ll reach out to an artist to get the shirt drawn up. You have until November 18th, 2015 at 5:00 PM (EST) to submit your idea or design.

Make sure to check back frequently as we may be reaching out to some of you for more information.


We’ll announce the winning design soon after and the shirt will then go on sale in time for you to beg your loved ones to buy ten of them for the holidays.

The Prizes


First Prize: Your design made into a Blipshift T-shirt. A one-day high performance driving/racing class at the Skip Barber Racing School courtesy of Blipshift and their friends at Skip Barber (details below). Jalopnik sticker. Free T-Shirt.

Second Place: Free T-shirt. Hilariously bad 6th Generation Camaro R/C car we bought and used in a video for our YouTube channel (coming soon)!


Third Place: Free T-Shirt. Jalopnik writer of your choice (probably Jason) records a ridiculous voice message for you.

*Contest Rules, Et Cetera

In addition to the rules listed above, all Gawker Contest Guidelines apply. The guidelines concerning submission of photos or information apply to any design submitted in this contest. Design may be altered, with consultation, to meet size and space requirements. First Prize winner must comply with all Skip Barber Racing School driver requirements in order to participate in high performance driving/racing class.


The winner will receive a Skip Barber 1-Day High Performance Driving Course & Racing Combo Gift Certificate with a face value of $1,200. The program teaches vehicle dynamics in Porsche 911 and Mazda MX-5 Race cars before heading out on track for two 25 minute sessions to learn the basics of the racing. Students will drive on the Skip Barber autocross constructed by legendary instructors and will test their ‘response’ time in the fun yet challenging skid pad. The winner has until Jan 15, 2016 to book a Skip Barber 1-Day High Performance Driving Course/Racing Combo on the track/date of their choosing in 2016 in exchange for the face value of the GC. After Jan 15, the Gift Certificate will revert to its face value, applicable against the then-current list price of any SB offering.
