I don't understand how sometimes Threadless picks winners.

i would love to answer you but i have no idea. Similar things have happened before, including to me once. The most stand out was the "i'm a big dill" shirt which had been subbed previously and then printed when subbed a second time by someone else. I think the key in this instance would be timing - sometimes what looks good now, may not have 3 years ago (is that how old yours is?) - that was a reason I was given anyway and it seems to make sense. its not like yours is only a month old. there are minor differences too - i'm not saying their one is necessarily better than yours, but there may be something to it that made it a better pick to threadless.
That said, it's still hurts like a butt kick when it happens but try take the postive from it - you're on the right track with the right ideas, just keep plugging at them!

There's always going to be people with similar concepts.

Although votes do play a significant role in what gets printed, theres also other factors like 1) if its well done/well executed, 2) marketability, and 3) if the staff wants it printed.

Quality. Chance.

Your design scored 2.6 back then, and at the time probably just didn't stand out from others. Dampa's design scored 3.2, so it was received better by the voters. (With less voters than your design, btw)

Why does the sea appear blue, and the sky appear blue? I think it's the same reason how Threadless pick a winner. It's not simple like 1+1=2 ^^

Like Digsy said at least ur on the right track. Be happy that a shirt with the same concept and same kind of design as yours got printed, that means you got the rite kind of ideas.

[+duracell-]

it printed over yours because the execution of the idea was better
