Here's a tip for making your submission shine
To increase your chances to win share your design on your social media channels (Twitter and/or Facebook) using hashtag #QtDD14shirt and @qtproject during Sep 1 – Sep 7. Feel free to encourage your followers to share your post. The decision will be based mainly on your design’s popularity on Social Media.

The winning design will be announced Tue, September 9. The person behind the winning design will get a free two-day pass to Qt Developer Days in either Berlin or San Francisco.

Get your pencils sharpened or fire up your design software of choice, send us your sketches and flood the Social Media with your design(s)! We’re excited to see what you’ll come up with!
