It seems like everyone loved our winning design — the staff at Gambit overwhelmingly voted for it, and you guys loved it when we posted the Top 9 on Facebook for voting. Congratulations to Cali Traina for her winning design, “Read & Reuse.” We liked this design because it was such a creative way to incorporate the Gambit into a larger theme. This is Cali’s first-ever entry in a Storyville tee shirt design contest.
Coming in second was “Best of New Orleans!” by Jason Whittaker. This is also Jason’s first-ever Top 5 finish, from his first-ever Storyville contest. We thought this design was very well executed and would be perfect for a tee. We hope to see more from Jason in future contests!
Third place goes to Stephen Feehily for “Gambit Clan” This is Stephen’s fifth Top 5 finish. Stephen never fails to impress with his incredible artistic talent. Keep ‘em coming, Stephen!
Christopher Murphy won fourth place for “The Spirit of NOLA,” and fifth place goes to Cliff Couvillon for “Gambit Has it All!” This is both Christopher’s and Cliff’s third Top 5 finish.
Honorable Mention goes to Lane Grigas for “Good Morning New Orleans.” This is Lane’s third Honorable Mention, and she has made the Top 5 once previously.
Let’s change it up a bit, and get in the Halloween spirit. The next contest is “Robots, Monsters & Aliens.” We aren’t looking for a Halloween-specific tee, because we’ll be printing these after the holiday. But your design can be any type of Robot, Monster or Alien. Think: an adorable version of the Loup Garou at the Audubon Zoo. Submissions for “Robots, Monsters & Aliens” will be accepted Monday, October 13 through midnight on Sunday, October 26. The winner will be announced Friday, October 31 (Happy Halloween!) at 8 p.m. right here at Blog.StoryvilleApparel.com.
15 new tees are only $12 through Monday, October 6 at Midnight. Click here to see them all.
From fourth to first — Cliff Couvillon comes off his fourth-place finish in our “Geaux Tigers 2014″ contest to take it all in “Roll Wave 2014.” Congratulations to Cliff, whose “Welcome Home Tulane Football” design is sure to excite everyone heading to Yulman Stadium on Saturday. This is Cliff’s first Grand Prize win, and his second Top 5 finish. The design is so clean, professional and really looks like a sporty football tee. We can’t wait to roll this out.
Coming in second was “J’Adore Tu” by Kristin Popham. This is Kristin’s first-ever Top 5 finish, from her first-ever Storyville contest. We thought this design was such a unique and clever way to express your love for Tulane. The colors are also pretty unique, while sticking to the general green & blue theme.
Third place goes to Ali Becnel-Solino for “The Whole Package.” This is Ali’s eighth Top 5 finish. We loved the art deco look with this design, and our Facebook fans really loved it, too.
Brad Rovira won fourth place for “Tulane Lovin,’” and fifth place goes to Nick Dubuisson for “Hullabaloo” This is Brad’s second and Nick’s third Top 5 finish.
Honorable Mention goes to Sam Varela for “It’s a Wave Thing.” Sam has been in the Top 5 five times prior to this contest.
We’re doing something a little different for our next contest. We’re partnering with the iconic New Orleans publication Gambit to come up with a cool new Gambit tee. The tee should mention Gambit or use the Gambit logo in some way, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be the central focus. For instance, to play off our poster theme for this contest, a design including a cup of coffee, a plate of beignets and a Gambit would be a pretty neat design. Really think outside of the box for this one — we want people to want to wear the shirt, instead of a generic logo tee. Plus, we’re yet again putting up a $1,000 Grand Prize for the winner. Submissions for “Design a Gambit Tee” will be accepted Monday, September 15 through midnight on Sunday, September 28. The winner will be announced Friday, October 3 at 8 p.m. right here at Blog.StoryvilleApparel.com.

Alas, only one can win the top prize, but the Top 3 will all go home with winnings from this contest. It doesn’t always work out this way, but our Top 3 were also our Facebook fan favorites for this contest. Just like in our last contest, the second place design will win $500, and third place will take home $300.
Congratulations to Stephen Feehily for his clever and impressive “Earthquake Test!” This is Stephen’s second grand-prize win in a Storyville Design Contest, and his fourth appearance in the Top 5. Stephen’s designs are so unique and original — they really make you stop and look again.
Coming in second was “Tiger Stadium is Ready” by Kelly & Keith Claverie. This is Kelly & Keith’s first-ever Top 5 finish, from their first-ever Storyville contest. When we posted on our Storyville Baton Rouge Facebook page, this design received over 300 likes and 81 shares. I think people are excited about the bigger & better Tiger Stadium.
Third place goes to Sam Varela for “Forever LSU.” This is Sam’s fifth Top 5 finish. This design was also super popular on Facebook, and we love how clever yet simple it is.
Cliff Couvillon won fourth place for “Death Valley Dreams,” and fifth place goes to Nick Dubuisson for “Ole War Skule” This is Cliff’s first and Nick’s second Top 5 finish.
