AVON, Ohio (August 2014) – Calling all designers, illustrators, artists and Duck Tape® enthusiasts! Duck Tape® brand duct tape is expanding its vibrant palette of over 250 colors, designs and licenses with a hot, fan-created design, and it could be worth $5,000 in the brand’s Duck Tape® MyDesign® Contest.

To enter, simply create an original design that you think would make a popular print. Could it be a fluorescent fusion of color? A bright, summery mix of flowers? Or, even an exotic animal print?

The winner of the first MyDesign® Contest, Shala Kerrigan, cashed in with a “Retro Owls” design – a bright purple background peppered with colorful owls sitting atop twisting branches. With this contest, the next design is definitely in the eye of the beholder!

“We are constantly amazed at the creativity and ingenuity expressed with Duck Tape®. With all the imagination surrounding this medium, we anticipate some exceptional designs – especially as we are sure so many of our fans have a perfect print in their mind that matches their personality,” said Shelley Price, marketing director, Duck Tape®, at ShurTech Brands, LLC, the company that markets the Duck® brand. “This is our way to draw out that creativity and give our enthusiasts yet another on-trend design for their next Duck Tape® project or creation.”

The Duck Tape® MyDesign® Contest runs through September 16. Designs must be original and cannot contain any third-party trademarks or stock images.

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges and public votes using criteria, including creativity and relevancy of the design. Winners will be announced on or about September 22.
