June 21, 2017
Majestic Athletic is the original home of American sportswear designing and manufacturing the official onfield jerseys and fanwear for all 30 Major League Baseball teams. And now they are looking to share the love of baseball with Europe via an exciting creative initiative.

Majestic Athletic invites designers around the world to submit original merchandise designs to be used on official limited edition versions of the classic baseball tee/sweatshirt/jogger. The design should be your interpretation of at least one of the five most popular baseball teams of the world and their home cities.

The Majestic Athletic team would love to see designs that capture your own unique style and your interpretation of what the five teams and their home cities represent to you. They want you to capture #MyMajestic, and show what each city/team could look like visually from your point of view. We want you to think outside of the box, and really tell a story through your design. Please read the submission criteria below before starting work on your submission and look at the mood boards below for inspiration.

Up to five designs will be selected and the Selected Artists will have the potential to have their designs sold as official limited edition baseball tees/sweatshirts/joggers on the Majestic EU website, have their work be part of a wider marketing campaign and receive £2,000 per selected design.
submission criteria
