Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz is supporting the "POWER" T-Shirt Design Challenge. The always fashionable Wentz is teaming up with online community MASScanvas, encouraging fans to design and illustrate "POWER" themed T-shirts. A portion of the sales of winning T-shirts will benefit Invisible Children, a children's advocacy group.
Now through Feb. 29, fans can submit designs for the "POWER" challenge here. All entries will be featured on the site. Entrants and fans can comment on designs throughout the challenge and vote for the top 20 designs.
Fast-forward to March 22, at which time Pete Wentz will choose five winning tees. Each winner will be receiving a $1,000 cash prize. Wentz will select five from the top 20 and he will choose which he feels best represent the theme. The five winning tees will be printed in limited quantity, individually hand-numbered and sold in support of the charitable cause.
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," said Wentz in a statement.
