Meet H&M’s Newest T-shirt Designers…All Under 21
The contest aimed to give exposure to young artists by creating a special t-shirt collection featuring the winners’ artwork. The talented designers also get to see their shirts featured in the window of H&M’s 5th Avenue store in NYC, as well as receive a $2,000 cash prize and a $500 shopping spree (and if you’ve been to H&M, you know five-hundred bucks can go a long way!).
This year’s winners include Myla Angela Cruz (age 18), Kevin Führmann (age 19), Jordan Tiberio (age 18 – see pic at left), Beth Zimmerman (age 21), and Rockie Nolan (age 20). Though the contest was open to entrants ages 18 and older, all the winners were 21 or under, and 3 were teens! Love it! And what a way to launch a design career!
