Help Us Create New NOC Merch (and Earn Some Cash Too)

Calling all artists! We’re running a fun new competition with our friends at TeePublic to turn your artwork into cool merch! 

To enter, create a piece of unique art around what being a “Nerd of Color” means to you, incorporating the NOC logo somewhere in the design. Then you’ll upload your design here (making sure you tag it #NOCTees) and send the link to us at or tag us on Twitter or Instagram @TheNerdsofColor.

Then we’ll have a vote on Twitter to see which of the designs is the most popular and the winner will receive an amazing merch bundle from TeePublic as well as being featured in our store!

Technical bit:
Take your art and export it as a PNG with a transparent background at 150 dpi or higher. This file is needed for displaying and printing.

(Everyone who enters will be paid a commission for every shirt you sell — full details here. You will need to sign up and create an account.)

We will be accepting submissions until the end of May. Voting begins on June 7! Good luck!
