ECA Announces T-shirt Design Contest Winners !!!

July 6, 2007 -
Yes, we said winners... Two, to be exact.

Word has just come down from the ECA command bunker, and here are the two winning T-shirt designs (in no particular order):

"Contrary to popular opinion..." by Mike Thompson

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Fight Back..."  by Ryan Le Roux

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GP: Big congratz to Mike and Ryan!!!

But there's more good news. ECA is going to do something for everyone who submitted a design. Most likely, every contestant gets a T-shirt. Finalists get some ECA schwag in addition. As for the two winning entries, as we said up front:
Our fearless leader, Hal Halpin, promises to wear the winning design at E3 during his interviews with leading TV shows on camera and in photo shoots with websites, newspapers and magazines.

Very cool, indeed!

Re: ECA Announces T-shirt Design Contest Winners !!!

Great to see some t-shirts making a point against those who are mis-informed about video games. Video games don’t encourage violence anymore then the millions of violent films do.

[...] hits Just Got Some Great News Saturday July 07th 2007, 12:05 am Filed under: MIKE'S POSTS, GENERAL While this isn’trelated to Red Truck Wines or the cross country trip, I just found out that a T-shirt layout I submitted for a contest has been chosen as one of two winning designs by the Entertainment Consumers Association as their official shirt. This is pretty huge, since the ECA is a large mover-and-shaker in the gaming industry, and its president is going to wear both shirts during TV interviews and photo shoots at E3 (one of the biggest gaming conventions of the year). [...]

http://www.cafepress.com/theeca is the address where the ECA has their schwag, so I'm assuming that these will be available on there shortly. Oh, and while you're there, why not join up? =)

2 words:FREAKING AWESOME

Yeah, where would one be able to buy one of these shirts? On their website, maybe?

ware can you buy them at i wood buy them both

@ Flaps
.....lol, nice man. Assuming you're a dude, of course

Hey awesome, I've found my cool dragon shirt doesn't get me beat up anymore in the adult world, so Thompson's design might be just what I need.

*Wonders where the 360 and PS3 controllers will fall on a...full figured woman*

Yes, my mind is in the toilet, but still...

now that i think about it, i think the shirt might be better with a pc mouse

Agreed Tammej : / The first, doesn't include a PC mouse. Why must PC gamers always be left out? You can't convince me that they don't represent a large percentage of gamers.

Woo hoo! These are the two shirts I wanted to win!

Personally, I'd probably design a T-Shirt with the stylised image of something video games can all relate to, while still making sure it's within the fair use rights to do that (so no Pac-Man there). Then I'd simply write "We come in Peace" underneath.

Furthermore: So far many if not most of those supposedly threatening "Killer games" have been PC games. The T-Shirt doesn't represent them.

That first shirt won? How? It's cluttered, uses potentially infringing images, and breaks the first law of propaganda: It includes the subphrase "make me a killer" leading people who see it to question why popular opinion suggests the wearer is a violent criminal. There are far more subtle ways of getting that message across without "protesting too much." Am I the only one who gets that impression?

Hmm, I can put off that 360 expense for a while, I like both shirts, favoring the first one over the second.

Oh, and I hope they have them in Waffle House sizes.

I'll definitely be getting the controller one. Damn I love that design, and I was hoping that it would win.

I just hope they'll be able to ship to Canada.

Aww damn. I was really pulling for Chen to win. Thompson's entry still rules though.

Congrats to the winners!

hey! chadachada, quit impersonating me!
gr...

videogames make me wanna kill chadachada

You can kinda tell the first shirt tried to avoid the "consolley-correct" by not picking any one controller over the other (to appease fanboys), but he also avoided the generic controller (rightly so), and it kinda seems too forced. Its a great idea, and the message is stellar... but the design is kinda hindered by itself... Also the shirt will be out dated in a few years, heh.

The second one is stylish looking, but agree that it is also kinda "violent" and I thought the whole point was to show that gamers arn't just rabid blood thirsty FPS animals...

However, both are decent I guess, and maybe I will pick them up... Kudos to you guys....

If anyone finds out where we can buy these shirts (if ever we can), I'd really like one of them

I like the first the best, as a political shirt that i'd wear once in awhile, but the second the best as "fashionable" not to sound gay or anything

I actually prefer the second. I don't think THAT many people actually believe video games cause violence, at least to a substantial degree, so I'd feel like a social hypochondriac wearing that first shirt.

Awsome shirts. Hope we can buy them somewhere.

Mike *Thompson*? No relation, I'm sure... (I'd bet money on it.) but yeah... I'd wear one.

I still don't like that second one. Too busy and possibly to "violent" on the back.

Mike Thompson's is the best though.

Very nice!
Mike's shirt was the best, IMO
Now we'll be able to buy these, right? I want both.

MechaTama31So I've been keeping my set of tabs in firefox for years now. I finally got tired of the sluggish performance and eventual memory bloat and decided to archive them all to bookmarks and start fresh. 792 tabs. >.>04/16/2015 - 9:15pm
