Storyville + Gambit = ?

We’re teaming up with Gambit for Contest #43. Get excited!

And the winner of “Roll Wave 2014″ is…

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.

And the winner is…

Our Top 5 (+ Honorable Mention) in this contest are all such great designs that any one of them could have been the winner. 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.

Honorable Mention goes to Ryan Lord for “Tiger Roar.” Ryan has been in the Top 5 three times prior to this contest.

For our next contest, we’re again going the college football route, but we’re going from one stadium, traveling about 82 miles southeast, to a brand-spanking-new stadium.  “Roll Wave 2014″ is an officially-licensed Tulane contest. Every entry will not only have to be approved by Storyville, but will be submitted for approval by Tulane, as well. You are allowed to use official trademarked phrases in your design such as Tulane, Roll Wave, Roll Green Wave, Green Wave, etc. For inspiration, check out last year’s “Go Green Wave” (here). Submissions will be accepted Monday, August 18 through midnight on Sunday, August 31. We will try our best to announce the winner early – Wednesday, September 3 at 8 p.m. right here at Blog.StoryvilleApparel.com. The announcement will depend on whether Tulane is able to approve all of our designs in time for us to post them all to Facebook before the announcement, so get your entries in early!

And the winner of “Black & Gold 2014″ is…

Our 40th design contest was one of our biggest contests yet! And what makes it even bigger is the fact that we are not only awarding guaranteed prize money to the grand prize winner ($1,000), but also to the second ($500) and third place ($300) winners. The designers who entered this contest really brought their A-game. We had a hard time narrowing it down to the Top 9, so we added three more designs and made it the Top 12. It was even more challenging to narrow it down to the Top 5 designs, but someone had to do it. The final 12 designs received more than 1,000 votes and more than 100 shares on Facebook. I think it’s fair to say that everyone is pretty excited for fall.

Congratulations to Ali Becnel-Solino for her fun & clever “Now My Whole Team Here.” This is Ali’s third grand-prize win in a Storyville Design Contest, and her seventh appearance in the Top 5. Y’all loved — I mean LOVED — this design on Facebook. We can’t wait to bring this design to the Storyville shelves (and online at StoryvilleApparel.com) in the next week.

Coming in second was “Pelican Pride” by Christopher Murphy. This is Christopher’s second Top 5 finish, after winning our last contest with his “Bienvenue en Louisiane.” We really loved the hand-drawn art in this design. It adds a uniqueness and reminds us of some classic New Orleans folk art. We think this will look great on kids stuff, too!

Third place goes to Brian Cvejanovich for “NOLA FC.” This is Brian’s sixteenth (!) Top 5 finish. We thought this design was so versatile, and would look perfect on a vintage football tee. Brian really gets what kind of design would work well on a tee shirt, which is sometimes a hard thing to understand. That’s why he often finds himself ranking high up in our contests.

Stephen Feehily won fourth place for “Anatomy of a Play,” and fifth place goes to Taryn Pusateri for “Black & Gold Crest” This is Stephen’s third and Taryn’s fourth Top 5 finish, and both of these designs were favorites with our Facebook fans.

Honorable Mention goes to Allison Dugas-Behan, who gave us some pretty complex art with “My Other Cathedral.” This is Allison’s second Honorable Mention, but she has been in the Top 5 eight times.

For our next contest, you’ll be trading the black & gold for some purple & gold. And once again, because this past contest was so awesome, we’re going to guarantee three prizes — a $1,000 Grand Prize, a $500 Second Prize, and a $300 Third Prize. “Geaux Tigers 2014″ is an officially-licensed LSU contest. Every entry will not only have to be approved by Storyville, but will be submitted for approval by LSU, as well. You are allowed to use official trademarked phrases in your design such as LSU, Geaux Tigers, LSU Tigers, Death Valley, etc. For inspiration, check out last year’s “Geaux Tigers 2013″ (here). Submissions will be accepted Monday, July 28 through midnight on Sunday, August 10. The winner will be announced on Friday, August 15 at 8 p.m. right here at StoryvilleApparel.com/blog. Also, get thinking about some blue & green designs — we’ll have an officially-licensed Tulane Football contest coming up soon!
