Threadless is running a pattern design contest. We thought this could be an amazing opportunity for all your Repper enthousiasts to join and show the world what beautiful patterns you can make!

In their own words:

Whoooo wants another $10K Loves?! We do! We do! Pattern us happy! We are so excited for this Loves challenge and hope you are, too. From now on, we’ll be accepting ongoing submissions for Threadless Patterns, which will be printed on tons of different types of products. But we wanted to kick it off with this awesome Loves challenge! YIPPEE!
There will be four grand prize designs, one design chosen for each product: scarf, wall decal, tote bag, and Select apparel. Each chosen designer will receive $2,500.

So don’t wait any longer, go and create amazing patterns and drag in those prizes!

Ponoko Repper Contest

Our friends at Ponoko have come up with a great new contest to let their community meet the awesomeness of Repper patterns.

The Contest

This month we’re giving away 5 free licenses of the delightful Repper tool, a simple application that lets you create repeating patterns.

With Repper, you can start with any source image, zoom in or out, change the tiling, edit colors on the fly, and export your repeating unit or the entire surface as a raster file. It does not export files in vector format (yet), but you can convert them using a vector editing application like Illustrator.

People have applied their Repper generated patterns to web and graphic designs as well as product design and interiors — and yes, a laser etched banana.

How would you apply a Repper pattern to a Ponoko project?
The top 5 answers will win a free Repper license courtesy of Dutch developers Studio:Ludens.

How to Enter:
Leave a comment below telling us about how you would use a Repper pattern with a project you could make using Ponoko.

Only comments describing projects that could be made with Ponoko’s digital making methods (3D printing & laser cutting) will qualify to win.

Prizes:
5 winners will each receive 1 free license to Repper, a €29 ($39) value.

Deadline:
Contest closes 16 March at 10p.m. PST.
People from the Ponoko and Studio:Ludens team will choose 5 winners total.
Winners will be notified on 17 March 2011 and announced in an update to this contest announcement.

Evil Mad Scientist has a great tutorial using some nifty IKEA-hacking techniques. It is surprisingly easy to create your own curtains, and using a print service like Spoonflower you will have your own curtains with Repper patterns on it in no time!

Daan Pothoven, one of our biggest Repper enthousiasts, has traveled through most of the Netherlands in one single day to spread the word about the Pattern Design Contest which has just begun! He tagged the cities of Breda, Rotterdam, Delft, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Arnhem & Enschede with our posters.

We hope you pattern lovers do send in a lot of pretty, weird and special designs!

Daan, thanks a lot!
