Every autumn we put out the call to all the artists, graphic designers, and other creative types, to submit a design for a Spark R&D T-Shirt. Over the years we’ve had some amazing entries and every year it gets more difficult to select the winner.

If we do choose your design not only will you win acclaim among your friends, family, and the splitboard community, but we’ll hook you up with apparel featuring your design and a fresh set of 16/17 bindings of your choosing.

Sounds too good to be true? It’s not, it’s the 2016 Spark R&D T-Shirt Design Contest.

Here are the rules:

–  Design a shirt that contains the Spark R&D logo.
–  Keep it to two colors maximum (t-shirt fabric does not count as a color).
–  Design needs to fit within a 12” x 12” (30cm x 30cm) area.
–  Artwork is best submitted in vector format – .pdf, .eps, .ai, etc – but we’ll take .jpgs and .pngs too.

We love seeing the designs people come up with. Check out our apparel page to view the last two winning designs: Moonrise (Jesse Hambley) & Midnight Rider (Samantha Madden). From funny to serious, and intricate to simple, all entries will be looked at and given the same chance to win.

Please submit entries to and be sure to include your full contact info including mailing address, phone number, and email. Designs must be submitted by Wednesday, November 30th. We’ll pick a winner by the end of the year.
