Threadless Teams Up with Cartoon Network Enterprises on "Adventure Time with Finn & Jake" Design Challenge!

Fans Tapped to Design Brand Spanking New T-shirt Based on Cartoon Network'sSmash Hit Animated Series

What the cabbage?! Looks like it's time for those ridiculously-talented and artsy Adventure Time fans to take to the Internet and rock out with their most righteous t-shirt designs! Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) and Threadless, the crowdsourcing poster child and innovative design company, unveiled plans today for a first-ever Adventure Time design challenge! Up and running now, artists and fans of the red-hot animated series created by Pendleton Ward can log on to atrium.threadless.com/adventuretime to submit designs inspired by Finn, Jake, Lumpy Space Princess - heck, even the Ice King - and the rest of the cast of characters and designs featured in the Land of Ooo. The theme of the program around which artists are asked to create their designs is "adventuring."

To participate in this month-long design challenge, artists submit their designs and have members of the Threadless community vote on them. The top-rated and most impressive designs will be selected by CNE and Ward, and they will be offered up as t-shirts sold exclusively at Threadless.com. A winning artist will also be selected and will receive a bunch of amazing prizes for his/her efforts, including a signed piece of original art from the show, $2,000 in cash and a $250 Threadless gift certificate. Artists have until Monday, July 4 to submit their design and the winner will be announced on Monday, July 25.

"The Adventure Time fanbase has been incredibly active, loyal and passionate since the launch of the brand," said Pete Yoder, vice president, U.S. consumer products for CNE. "This partnership with Threadless gives us a highly-creative and organic way to tap in to that rich fan community and give them the chance to design some exclusively-inspired merchandise."

"Threadless strives to give our global community of more than 100,000 artists new opportunities to design cool things for meaningful organizations and businesses," said Jake Nickell, Founder of Threadless. "Through Threadless Atrium, CNE has the opportunity to discover how powerful and fun it is to work with their own communities to dream-up and create products through community-based design and voting. Adventure Time is a perfect fit with the passions and interests of our community and we're excited to offer this cool challenge to them."

Since its debut on Cartoon Network in April 2010, the Adventure Time animated series has quickly become a Cartoon Network fan favorite, as the series' first season was watched by more than 37 million people according to Nielsen Media Research, and new fans have been watching new episodes from the second season that premier on Cartoon Network on Monday nights at 8:00 p.m. (ET, PT).

From the mind of Ward, the show is produced in partnership with Frederator Studios with Fred Seibert serving as an executive producer. Teeming with imposing mountains, lush green plains, accessible forests, ubiquitous prairies and winding rivers, the Land of Ooo is filled with bizarre characters in need of unique assistance. Whether it's saving Princess Bubblegum, defeating zombie candy, mocking the "oxy-moronic" Ice King, or rocking out with undead music wiz Marceline the Vampire Queen, with Finn & Jake it's always Adventure Time.
