Threadless, the global design community, announced the winners of the Captain America Design Challenge, the latest design contest in partnership with Marvel. Given the success Threadless saw last year with Marvel’s Thor Design Challenge, artists worldwide were invited back to participate in the Captain America Design Challenge. Threadless opened the process for artists across the world to submit designs featuring Captain America characters and storylines, which were then voted upon and scored by the Threadless community in order to decide which designs would comprise the new collection of completely original Marvel t-shirts.
The three Captain America t-shirts are part of larger collection that features 78 designs chosen from 2,252 submissions which includes Spider-Man, Iron Man and other heroes from the Marvel universe. To date, Threadless maintains a community of 2.7 million artists and art enthusiasts, and has paid out $8,744,411 to more than 1,200 artists.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters April 4, 2014, and the new Captain America collection is now available for purchase here.
