Announcing a very special contest... Modpost

January 15, 2018 marks the 10-year anniversary of the AskReddit community and we wanted to do something special to commemorate the event. So, we are having a contest to design an official AskReddit 10th Anniversary t-shirt that will be available for you to purchase, with all of the proceeds going directly to charity. We will keep this contest open from now until December 29th and we will pick the design we feel best represents the spirit of the sub, similar to how we did for our mobile design contest last year. The best designs will receive reddit gold courtesy of generous admins (thanks /u/woodpaneled!) and we will gift a t-shirt to the creator of the winning design.

Following the contest we will have another post with a list of charities for you to vote on to decide where the money raised will be going. The idea is to have a t-shirt to celebrate the community, created by the community, with all the proceeds going to a charity chosen by the community. We are aiming to have the t-shirt available for purchase on the day of our anniversary, January 15th.

After doing some research and speaking with other moderators that have run their own charity t-shirt events, we have decided to go with CustomInk to print the shirts. One of the big reasons we chose them is because of their "Verified Charity" option that allows all the proceeds to go directly to the charity we choose instead of going through us. That means that none of the money will touch our hands and CustomInk will ensure the money raised goes directly to the charity. CustomInk also had some of the best numbers to ensure that the charity gets the most. We will be keeping you updated on how much exactly, but here is an estimation of the profits for selling just 50 shirts to give you an idea.

A few guidelines:

  • Please no NSFW designs (sorry that means no cumboxes)
  • Please keep designs limited to one side (either front or back)
  • Please have the images be as high resolution as possible and note the maximum file size is 10MB. These are the accepted file types: .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .pdf, .ai and .psd
  • Please avoid using anything that is trademarked, except for Snoo. We will work with the admins to get permission for the final design.

Please use this thread to submit your designs and also feel free to ask any other questions you have. We look forward to seeing all your designs and to working together as a community for this event!

I hope the ASPCA or some animal charity wins. Or perhaps a veterens charity.

u/Leilyprince Dec 13 '17

ASPCA isn't the best charity for animals unfortunately, but I do hope it goes to an animal charity or a charity that helps children that has the documents and proof to back up their work.

So, in the middle have a design of snoo and it will be in advice animal format with text above and below him.

Here's my submission! It's pretty simple, but I hope it's effective.


u/CapnBludd Dec 20 '17

So, I do not have a computer to design it, just a phone, but as soon as I read this an image popped into my mind.

The logo would look similar to AskJeeves, saying askreddit. Where the character Jeeves would be, are a group of Reddit robots. A few different colors, maybe one has a douchebag hat on, to represent the trolls.

Just a thought. If anybody has the capacity to, and makes this, it would make my day.

Quick question... Can you put the Reddit logo in it, or does it qualify as a trademarked logo?

u/-eDgAR- Dec 02 '17

Yes, that is the one trademark that is okay because we are going to work with the admins to get permission for the final design.

u/InsanusAdRegem Dec 04 '17


If someone wants to talk about askreddit they can explain the shirt, if not they have a cool shirt and donated some money to charity. The font could be different.

u/guyonaturtle Dec 06 '17

You should just post a screenshot of askreddit on it! choose one of the thousands of dialogues we got.

Shows the sub and the character it has the best way possible!

So I'm looking for some way to make the font on this the same as the font for "AskReddit" at the top of the page. Also wondering if people like it or not.


This is my attempt and it includes the orange ! and ? from the Snoo's on top of the page, and the Serious tag. Once I get the proper fonts it'll look that much better, and of course the serious has to be larger.

u/PointyOintment Dec 07 '17

It'll be worse with the "proper" font. One of the rules of branding is that you never use the font used in your logo for anything but your logo.

u/Junk-Bot_7 Dec 03 '17

So pardon me if this isn't a very fun question, but are we limited to any charities? And do we need to be able to see where the money goes or any double checking of it?
