Well, one designer got “lucky” in our St. Patrick’s Day contest, “Erin Geaux Bragh.” Congratulations to Ali Becnel Solino, who designed the fun “Irish Roses.” We are also going to work with Ali to create an Italian version of this same tee for all of you proud Italians out there. This is Ali’s second win, having previously won our “The Mighty Mighty BR” contest with her “Baton Rouge Saturday Night” design.
Coming in second was the super-cute “NOLA Fence” by Taryn Pusateri. You guys adored this design on Facebook. Taryn has been in the Top 5 once before, and was Honorable Mention in our last contest, “Carnival 2014.”
Third place goes to Laci Roth for another fan favorite, “Fleur de Lis au Gratin.” We think that this simple design would translate really well on a tee shirt. This makes Laci’s tenth Top 5 Finish.
Cindy Strecker and Valerie Strecker won fourth place for their creative combo design “Sham de Lis,” and fifth place goes to Phil Trammel for “Southern Gaelic.” This is Valerie’s fifth, Cindy’s first, and Phil’s second Top 5 finish.
Honorable Mention goes to Christy Gonzalez for “Fleur de Luck.” This is Christy’s fourth Honorable Mention, but she has also been in the Top 5 seven times. She was the winner of our last contest, “Carnival 2014.”
It’s almost Festival season, y’all! It’s time to Let the Music Move You. Give us your best, most creative music-themed designs. These designs can have anything to do with music, but please, don’t use the images of specific musicians. “Let the Music Move You” runs from March 17 through March 30. The winner will be announced April 4. Need inspiration? You can check out last year’s “Feel Good Music” contest here, and our very first contest, “Musicality,” right here. Good luck!!

Our 21-month-old son woke up from his nap today a little cranky. So what did we do? We let him eat king cake.
Congratulations to Christy Gonzalez for her whimsical “A Royal Decree.” This is Christy’s first win, but her sixth Top 5 finish. She is also the 19th different winner of our 35 design contests. We celebrated today’s winner at Storyville HQ by eating little bit of king cake, I’m not gonna lie.
Coming in second was the lovely “If Ever I Cease to Love” by contest first-timer, the talented Julia Lavigne. We hope to see more of Julia’s designs in future contests!
Third place goes to another design contest first timer, Victor Betancourt, for the fan favorite, “Mardi Gras Food Pyramid.” Y’all loved this design on Facebook. We also hope to see more of Victor’s designs in the future.
Lindsay Black won fourth place for the downright silly “Pardi Animal,” and fifth place goes to Christy Gonzalez (again!) for “Return of Bacchasaurus.” This is Lindsay’s first and Christy’s seventh Top 5 finish.
Honorable Mention goes to Taryn Pusateri for “Do Whatcha Wanna.” This is Taryn’s first Honorable Mention, but she has also been in the Top 5 once before.
It’s not easy being green, but that’s what we need you to do for our next contest. Give us your best, most creative St. Patrick’s Day designs. “Erin Geaux Braugh” runs from Feb. 10 through Feb. 23. The winner will be announced Feb. 28. Need inspiration? You can check out last year’s “St. Patrick’s Day” contest here. Good luck and kiss me, I’m Irish!
Pop! It’s a Jackson in a Box! Laci Roth won her second first-place prize with this clever take on a Jack in the Box toy. We loved that she incorporated both Andrew Jackson and the St. Louis Cathedral in the design. Plus, there are a whole lot of kids running around named Jackson, and I’m sure they will absolutely need this tee. Congrats, Laci!
Coming in second was the fan favorite on Facebook, “Southern Vowels” by Sam Varela. Y’all REALLY loved this design, so we hope to bring it to Storyville shops very soon. This is Sam’s second Top 5 finish.
Third place goes to Jordan Kieff for “Drinkin’ Shirt.” This design was solid — we loved the simplicity of this design (yet actually designing something this well isn’t so simple). This is Jordan’s second Top 5 finish.
Leslie Jeannet captured both fourth and fifth place with her designs “Vroom Vroom” and “Little Dat.” This is Leslie’s third (and fourth) Top 5 finish.
Honorable Mention goes to Christy Gonzalez for “ABCs.” This is Christy’s third Honorable Mention, but she has also made the Top 5 six times.
Finally. It’s Carnival Time. We want that hot new Mardi Gras design you’ve been thinking about ever since you took your first bite of King Cake this season. We’re accepting submissions now through February 2, and the winner will be announced February 7. Need inspiration? You can check out last year’s “Mardi Gras” contest here. Good luck and throw me something, mister!
Valerie Strecker strikes again! Valerie is taking home the top prize for her simple “Nola at Night” design. We had a bunch of good designs in this contest, and good feedback on Facebook. But what the contest ultimately came down to was the Storyville staff’s votes, and which design everyone thought would sell the best in our shops. That design was “Nola at Night,” and we agree that the simple use of the crescent moon and star as letters in the design made it quite lovely.
Coming in second was Brian Cvejanovich’s “Nola (Whiskey and Wine)”. We really liked this design a lot — compared to the winning design, this one has a lot more going on. You really have to look at this one — see the N? The O? The L? The A? This is Brian’s fourteenth Top 5 finish.
Third place goes to Christy Gonzalez for “Hooray for Cafe au Lait.” This is Christy’s sixth Top 5 finish. Y’all loved this design on Facebook because it speaks the truth. Now head to Morning Call in City Park and get you some beignets & au lait.
Mark Gautreaux’s “Fleur de Luv” came in at fourth place, and fifth place goes to Allison Dugas-Behan and James Behan, Jr. for “You’re a Doll!” This was Mark’s second Top 5 finish, and Allison & James’ eighth Top 5 finish.
Our next contest is just a little selfish. We want our adorable, fun-loving almost-20-month-old kiddo, Oliver, to have the coolest, most creative tee shirt ever. And of course we’ll share it with the rest of the world, selling it in our shops and on StoryvilleApparel.com, so please do not include his name in the design. Simply create the most awesome tee for a toddler boy (or at least gender neutral) that has ever been created. Submissions for “Oliver” will be accepted through January 5. The winner will be announced January 10. Need inspiration? You can check out the “Storyville Kids” contest here. Designers can pick any subject matter they wish for this contest, as long as a toddler (or his parents) would totally love it. Have fun & good luck!

We are seeing some fresh faces in the Top 5 this go round. Our top three finishers are all first-time Top 5 Finishers. Congratulations to Phil Trammel, who won the Grand Prize with his sleek design, “Who Dat Nation.” This was Phil’s first Top 5 finish.
Coming in second was Winston Scully’s “New Orleans Skyline” This is also Winston’s first Top 5 finish. This one was definitely a fan favorite on Facebook and Twitter.
Third place goes to Sam Varela for “Get Dat Loud.” This is also Sam’s first Top 5 finish. We loved the simplicity of this design, with a message that comes across instantly.
