Are YOU the Next Degrassi Designer?!
Degrassi Online has partnered with Brüzer for an exciting new competition that gives YOU, THE FANS, the ability to have a say in the Degrassi merchandise. Do you share a passion for fashion with Fiona Coyne? Are you creative and artistic like Imogen? Or are you just passionate about all things Degrassi like we are?!
We’re on the look-out for someone to help design a brand new Degrassi product to be featured in the official Degrassi online store, powered and sponsored by Brüzer. This is your chance to create something that could become a part of the Degrassi legacy!
The winning design submission will inspire a new product, which will be added to the Degrassi online store powered by Brüzer. The winner will also receive a coupon for CAD$150 to spend in the official Degrassi on-line store. The Runner-up will receive a coupon of CAD$50 to spend in the official Degrassi on-line store.
It’s really easy too! Just use the form below and submit your design for consideration. You must submit a written description of your design idea, and you also have the option to attach an image of what your design might look like. You don’t have to be a great artist… we’ll help with that part. Check out the Degrassi online store to see what merchandise is already offered. Is there anything you think the Degrassi store is missing? What you would like to see? Be creative!
Submit your design ideas by November 12, 2012 at 11:00 p.m. ET. All submissions will then be reviewed by the contest officiators, who will choose the top designs. Our officiators will be judging submissions on criteria including: creativity, originality, practicality, marketability, and relevance to Degrassi. We want to see designs that would appeal to ALL Degrassi fans. We’re looking for the WOW factor; something that hasn’t been produced by the Degrassi online store before. The top designs will then be posted as finalists, and you will have the opportunity to vote, giving all Degrassians their say on the top designs! The winning design and a runner-up design will be chosen by our officiators in their discretion, based on the judging criteria (Degrassians’ voting may influence the officiators’ decisions, but will not determine the winning or runner-up design). Voting will commence on November 19, 2012, and you will have until November 26, 2012 to vote for your favourite.
The competition will be open to all fans 13 years of age or older, who are legal residents of Canada (excluding Quebec), or the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, except for employees, representatives and agents of Brüzer, Epitome Pictures, Degrassi Online, or those residing or domiciled with any of them.

Design concepts do not have to be limited to clothing specific items; we want to know the different types of Degrassi products that you want to see.
