Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and MASScanvas have come together to present the “POWER” T-shirt Design Challenge.
The challenge started February 1 and will run through February 29. Fans can submit designs for the challenge and all entries will be featured on MASScanvas. Fans will then vote and choose the top 20 designs. Then, on March 22, Pete Wentz will choose five winning tees (each receiving a $1,000 cash price) out of the top 20.
What does the contest entail? “Maybe it’s not the typical public perception of power… but I’m talking about the power that everyone has within them. To me what separates the top designs from all the rest is one where you can see that the person put their heart into it. You can see that they really believe in the grander idea,” says Pete.
A portion of the sales of the five winning tees will benefit Invisible Children. Submit your design via MASScanvas.

This past week I received a package from PuR Enterprises, a brand new company based out of Canada.
They mailed me two of their four currently available designs. The two tees they generously sent over included “Don’t be Koi” and “Bamboo ‘U’.”
“Don’t be Koi” ($27.99) is available in a women’s slim tee.
“Traditionally the koi symbolizes good luck and fortune. Swimming upstream against all odds and never giving up: Who better to grace our shirt?” “Bamboo ‘U’” ($24.99) is printed on a unisex slim tee.
“Bamboo traditionally symbolizes longevity. It can endure the harshest conditions the environment throws at it, while standing tall and healthy. Having one on your shirt speaks volumes.” All of PuR Enterprises tees are created sweat-shop free and feature custom neck tags. You can order both “Don’t be Koi” and “Bamboo ‘U’,” as well as their other designs, via PuR Enterprises.
And guess what? Both tees are available for you to win in the IMSS + PuR Enterprises Giveaway!
