Crowd-sourcing internet startup,, supports artists around the globe through its ongoing daily t-shirt design contest. The company is launching year two with a $10,000 grand prize for a single t-shirt design.

One year ago (DBH) launched into the t-shirt design world with a $5,000 kickoff contest. Out of hundreds of entries one winner snatched the Grand Prize of $5,000. In celebration of a successful first year and as a show of gratitude to its online community members, DBH is kicking off year two with The DBH 10K Contest - a winner take all competition where one artist will win $10,000 cash for a single t-shirt design.

DBH's rapidly growing popularity among artists and t-shirt aficionados from around the world is fueled by the company's innovative "crowd-sourcing" business model where consumers and designers play an active role in determining what products will be produced and sold on the website, and who will be the next artist to receive international recognition and fortune.

Headquartered in Orange County, California, the epicenter of the lifestyle apparel industry, Design By Humans leverages years of experience in apparel decoration to offer designers a virtually limitless blank canvas to express creativity. "Design By Humans has removed many of the design restrictions imposed by other sites by allowing up to 14 colors as well as gradients and half-tones," said DBH co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, Matt Gutierrez. "We're excited to see what designers will come up with when given the freedom to use a broad range of specialty inks, foils, flocks, embroidery and appliqués in their art."

Design By Humans awards $500 cash and $250 of DBH store credit every day of the week, Monday through Friday, to a new winning designer along with additional cash prizes up to $3,500 for the winning Shirts of the Week and Month. Submissions are entered through the company's website at where consumers will also find an ever-changing online store of over 280 t-shirt designs available for purchase ranging in price from $17 to $25.
