2022 Pentax Forums T-shirt Contest

It's that time again- our annual T-shirt contest is back for a 2022 edition!

For inspiration, you may view prior designs on our Teespring store.

Theme: incorporate the PF logo (download here) in a camera, lens, and/or photography-themed T-shirt. An emphasis on Pentax's shift toward "workshop-style" manufacturing would be a bonus. Let your imagination rule!

We can print shirts in multiple colors. You may therefore submit light and dark variations of your design if you wish to support both types of material.

Deadline: August 20th July 31st 2022, by the end of the day your time

To enter: post each submission in a reply to this thread, as an attachment (be prepared to e-mail a high-res version if you're a winner)

You can choose to enter as many designs as you'd like.

Prizes: Each winner will each receive two free shirts shipped to their door, plus a Site Supporter forum account upgrade

Requirements and restrictions:

Do:
  • New: you may submit a front+back design this year, but please ensure that the front side can be used standalone
  • Only the central area on the front/back of the shirt will be printable. We can't print on the sides, above the neckline, or on the sleeves
  • Your design must include the Pentax Forums logo. You may alter the colors or make minor changes / additions
  • You may use specific Pentax product names and product logos (i.e. K-1, K-3, etc), and traces of official product photos, or any product photo found on PF's homepage
Don't:
  • Important! Your design can't have more than 10 colors (preferably 4 colors or fewer), so avoid the use of photos
  • Photos can NOT be printed - you must either vectorize the image or reduce the number colors
  • You may not use any other photo or work subject to copyright, without permission
  • You may not use the official Pentax logo font (type out Pentax instead)

Once we're closed to submissions, we'll have members vote to select the winning designs. We plan to pick three winners, but may opt for more if there are many exceptional designs.

I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with, and I'm sure many other forum members are, too. Good luck!

This year, we will continue T-shirt production through Teespring. With two different fulfillment locations, simple storefronts, and prints every 3 days, shipping is cheaper and faster than it's ever been before.

To get you started, here are four top designs from the past 5 contests:

Hmm, the teespring link looks like it has certificate issues. Comes up with a "not private" warning.

It loads fine for me. Are you still experiencing the issue?

Well, here goes...
It looks like this entry may be a first for a yellow shirt design...
I may do a higher contrast camera image in the next iteration...

Just another idea

Edit... Thanks to @bobphoenix for helping me identify a couple of needed corrections, also updated the font to a Pentax's logo similar font (Fago Ex) so now I'm not using Pentax logo, and changed the camera image as the first one I used is copyrighted, so to avoid any issues, I created one on my own camera image.

Nice ! Although Q isn't any SLR.
Nice list.

You could add the only whole SLR system for 110 format.

Great! I love it. Don't forget the pinnacle:
1973 Spotmatic F Open aperture metering. The viewfinder never darkens.

Thanks for the tip Imd91343!

I did a little research on the internet, and I did find that the Spotmatic F was the first Asahi's camera with Open Aperture Metering, but it was not a world's first, nor a Pentax's innovation. I may be wrong, in which case, if you have info that confirms that it was a Pentax world's first innovation, please share it with me so I can add it to the "tour list" .

Kindest regards,

Marko
