community of 40 million gamers and the Threadless
community of 2 million artists know that just a few basic tools and a big imagination can provide endless hours of fun. In Minecraft, gamers can climb the tallest mountains, venture down the darkest caves, and build anything they can imagine. Threadless’ artists make the ideas, pick what Threadless sells, and are the reason why Threadless exists. Everything Threadless does gives artists more opportunities to make great art. Through the combined love of making and creating imaginative things, Minecraft and Threadless have partnered together to challenge Threadless’ artists and the general public to use the Minecraft worlds as inspiration for the next Threadless design.
Threadless challenged artists and gamers alike to bring their design to life using characters, tools, blocks and their good ole' imagination to create the Threadless Loves Minecraft t-shirt design . The chosen designs were recently released at MineCon
, and are now available here
Three chosen designers received $3,000 cash, a $500 Threadless Gift Certificate and an all-expenses paid trip to attend the annual MineCon convention at Disneyland Resort in Paris, which took place November 24-25, 2012.
