A One, A Two, A Helluva Hullabaloo! This was a helluva contest.
Meghan Weaver wins her second contest in a row with “Hullabaloo T-Wave,” which took our top prize. We were impressed with the way Meghan incorporated the classic “Hullabaloo” cheer into the official Tulane logo. This is Meghan Weaver’s third grand-prize win, and sixth Top 5 finish. She has also received multiple honorable mentions for her designs. She is on a roll (wave)!
Laci Roth’s “Wave de Lis” came in at a very close second. It was definitely a fan favorite. This is Laci’s fourth Top 5 finish — Laci’s designs consistently place in the Top 5. Laci has been submitting some great designs lately. She created our popular “Anatomy of a Dance Machine” design.
Third place goes to Mary Leigh Fitzmorris for “Let the Good Times Roll.” This was Mary Leigh’s very first entry in a Storyville design contest, and she placed third — not too shabby. The clever blending of Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler and “Roll Wave Roll” made this one a favorite.
Fourth place goes to “Never Say Die” by Christy Gonzalez, and fifth place goes to Mark Gautreaux for “Rolling Waves.” This is Christy’s second Top 5 finish, and Mark’s first Top 5 finish.
Finally, Valerie Boulmay gets an honorable mention for her “Nobody Rolls Like Us” design. This was the first-ever Storyville contest entry for Valerie.
Special thanks to the Tulane alumni in Washington, DC who voted as special guest judges in this contest.
Now it’s time to introduce our next contest, “Walk on the Wild Side.” The contest just has to involve an animal of some sort (or multiple animals if you want to get really crazy). They don’t necessarily have to be “wild” animals. We already have two entries for this contest from our top two finishers from this contest. Submissions for this contest will be accepted through Midnight on Friday, May 31. The winner of the contest will be announced on Wednesday, June 5. Good luck!
Wondering which design contests were coming up? Wonder no more. And we’ve got something really fun planned for our 30th design contest, which will take place this August.
Sorry for the delay, but we need a couple more days to conduct the vote for our “Go Green Wave” design contest. We’ll have the final results up right here on the Storyville blog this Friday at 8 pm.
Check out the official poster for our newest tee shirt design contest. “Go Green Wave” is our first Tulane University-themed design contest. All contest submissions will have be approved by Tulane and the Collegiate Licensing Company before we can post them online (as was the case with our previous LSU and UL-Lafayette contests).
Y’all really loved a bunch of these designs on Facebook. Y’all really really loved Meghan Weaver’s designs. Well, so did we.
Congratulations to Meghan Weaver, whose “Nola Proud” took our top prize. We loved how Meghan incorporated some items that are so uniquely New Orleans, without being cheesy. This is Meghan Weaver’s second grand-prize win, and fourth Top 5 finish. She has also received multiple honorable mentions for her designs. We have big plans for this tee — crew necks, v-necks, unisex & female cuts!
Jessica Gorman takes second place with her “Betcha I Know Where You Got Dem Shoes.” We all know the answer to that one. This is Jessica’s third Top 5 finish. This design will look really great on a tee, and it may even prevent one of those guys from harassing you on the street — I know the joke, dude. Go find a tourist.
Third place goes to Meghan Weaver for “100% Local.” This brings her total Top 5 finishes to five. This design was another Facebook favorite. We’ve printed a few different Louisiana state designs, but this one was unique with all of the different elements within the shape of the state. Meghan really knows what it means to be from, or currently live in, Louisiana.
Fourth place goes to the funky “Zen City” by Andrew Moore, and fifth place goes to Laci Roth’s tongue-in-cheek “Hurricane Party.” This is Andrew’s second Top 5 finish, and Laci’s third Top 5 finish.
Finally, Leslie Jeannet gets an honorable mention for her “Cajun Castle” design. Leslie’s designs have been in the Top 5 twice before. We can’t wait to stock our new Mall of Louisiana shop with some new Baton Rouge designs, and this one could be a great one with which to start.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this contest! Are you ready for another one? We’re going to switch gears a bit. For our next contest, “Go Green Wave” (Tulane-themed contest), we’re asking for some original Green Wave designs that will potentially become officially-licensed tees. Please do not use existing images of the Tulane logo or mascot — we want you to be creative, and we want original art. You may use the following trademarked terms (a plus if you put the little “TM” after them): “Tulane University,” “Tulane,” “Tulane Green Wave,” “TU,” and “Green Wave.” Submissions for this contest will be accepted through Midnight on Friday, May 10. The winner of the contest will be announced on Wednesday, May 15. Good luck!

We had a hard time deciding the winner of this one.
The top designs were so close in voting, especially among our staff, that we narrowly picked a winner. But in the end, the winner was the design that we could use not only in its entirety, but individual elements of it as well.
Congrats to Brian Cvejanovich for winning the contest with some swimming (and boogie-ing) gators in “Boogie on Down.” We will no doubt print this design as is, but we may take individual elements from the design — a piano-key-toothed smiling gator, a gator second lining — and print those, as well. What can I say? We’re a sucker for alligators ’round these parts. The design is versatile and colorful, and we think it will sell well in the shops and on StoryvilleApparel.com.
Coming in at a very close second is “Shake Your Boutte!” by Megan Nolan. How cute is this design? Fans on Facebook went batty for it, and we hope to bring this design to Storyville‘s shelves very soon. This design would be perfect to sport at Jazz Fest later this month.
Third place goes to Chris Melton’s “Music for the Soul.” It’s a very detailed design, much like his design that won our last contest – “City Course.” Chris continues to impress us with his work.
Fourth place goes to the peaceful “Lullaby” by Christy Gonzalez, and fifth place goes to Adam McGovern’s “N.O. Better Pick.” Adam’s design was very popular among the Facebook crowd.
Finally, Meghan Weaver gets an honorable mention for her “Festival Shirt” design. Meghan has been on a roll lately, and this design would be absolutely perfect for festival season. Since we started doing design contests almost a year ago, Meghan has probably designed more Storyville tees than any other single designer.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this contest! Now it’s time to really test your limits. Sometimes simple designs are the most difficult to execute, and that’s what we’re looking for in Contest #24. “Color One” is the name of the game, and the rules are as follows: the design can only be ONE color, but you can also use a background color (which would be the color of the tee). The designs can be whatever theme you wish, as long as it’s only one color. Submissions for this contest will be accepted through Midnight on Friday, April 19. The winner of the contest will be announced on Wednesday, April 24. And here are the themes for the next 3 contests. Good luck!
