Employees of Time Warner Trade Publishing Inc. and affiliated companies and members of those employees' immediate families are not eligible.

All employees and immediate family members of Head2Head Sports, their sponsors, advertising, production, and fulfillment agencies are not eligible for prizes.

Employees or agents of Newcap radio stations or any entity associated with the Contest, as well as members of the same household of any such employee or agent, may not participate.

Employees, representatives, agents, shareholders officers and directors and the advertising or promotional agencies of ATI Technologies Inc. (the “Sponsor”), and those with whom the above are domiciled, are not eligible to enter.

The Contest is not open to employees and representatives of the Contest Sponsor, including their subsidiaries, sponsors, advertising and promotional agencies and members of the immediate families of such employees or representatives and persons with whom such employees and representatives are domiciled.

Restrictions on participation should also avoid exclusions that could expose the sponsor to charges of unlawful discrimination.

And the list goes on and on…. I don’t understand why your employees are eligible for your “contest” Ross Zietz gets another employee bonus and perk.

How about all the other people that submit designs? He seems to have an unfair “advantage”

Those contests that you are referencing are a lot different then ours, they are mostly, if not all, random drawings. This contest is based on design talent and does not give ross an unfair advantage at all. His designs are voted on by the public and given a score just like everyone else. It is not our policty to deny our employees the right to showcase their design talent through Threadless.

It'd be like members of Congress not being able to run for president because they are employees of the government.

Also, Ross has been submitting and winning the contest for years before we hired him.

Don't be hatin'!

considering he designs some of the best shirts here, please dont stop him from submitting. If you do, i'll have to attack your warehouse with a lethal army of emus!

FEAR THE EMUS!

hehe, we won't - but it does upset people and while I do understand that, I'd rather put time into helping people trust our policies & decisions than just deny everyone here the right to submit.

hi-fi gods

i bought sweet creep and i'm gonna buy either Poo-tee-weet or On the Plains as soon as i get some cash from my graduation party.

spowag1,

it's actually not a joke, nore is it crap.

it is a competition. it is a contest. but in the end there is an exchange. we give you cash - you give us a right to print your design. most competitions don't work that way.

spowag1

and employees designs (aka ross) get exculsive consideration that nobody else gets... ok I get it then.
thanks for all your help !

exclusive consideration? we don't give his designs any special consideration.

Sorry spowag- couldn't hear you over the tiny symphony violins playing.

Most of my Threadless tees are Ross' creation. He's a brilliant designer, amazing illustrator, AND has deep (sometimes subversive, sometimes sarcastic) concepts. There's really not one other submitter, employee or not, who posesses all of these qualities.

...did I spell 'posesses' right?

You just can't fault threadless, except prehaps the pollution generated. Have you ever considerd caulculating the amount of carbon you produce ecah year and then plant the correct amount of trees to counter act it? Howies do this. Just a suggestion.

spowag1 - I'm not sure what your argument here (or in that other blog) is. Are you saying that Threadless should stop printing good designs that score well? Because that's really all we look at - how well they score and how many I'd Buy It's. Also why devote so much time to being negative and hating a company so much? lame.

samadhi46

damnit spowag! stop yer bitchin! no ones forcing you to buy his shirts. You do realize that if he was disqualified Threadless would have probably just printed the three other tees and left it at that - they obviously dont have some standard number of new tees that they must print weekly. No one else is being hurt by this. If threadless wanted to save a place for an extra employee-designed tee each week, i dont see how even that would hurt the rest of us. Frankly, if they favor their employees' designs and print crappy ones, no one will buy them and they'll lose money. It's capitalism damnit!
