T-Shirt Slogan Contest

AtariAge T-ShirtThe Contest is Over

Wow, we had over 200 slogan suggestions for the t-shirt contest - we'd like to thank everyone who participated! After reading through all the submissions, we discovered it's not an easy thing to choose one entry out of hundreds for a single winner. So, we took the easy way out and picked three. Anyway, without further ado, here are the winning entries (in no particular order):

"Classics Only Get Better With Age" - Ashley Alford
"Mine's Got a Wood Panel" - Dave Exton
"Good Games Only Need One Red Button" - Joe Kollar

Each winner will receive an AtariAge t-shirt of their choice with their slogan on the back. You can see all the entries by scrolling down this page, or jump straight to the entries. If you'd like to discuss the slogans, tell us what idiots we are for not picking your entry, or just tell us which one was your favorite, please go the the T-Shirt Contest Thread on our forum. Thanks!

The Original Contest (Now Over)

Yes, you can finally order gear with the AtariAge name and logo on it. T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, hats, and other items are all available. Now you can look stylish (kinda) and support AtariAge at the same time. You can see all the products at the AtariAge Gear Store. To kick it off, we're offering a free t-shirt to whoever can come up with the best slogan for the back of a t-shirt.

Ideally the slogan will be relevant to Atari in general, not one system in particular. A good example is "Have you played Atari today?", which was an official Atari slogan. More specific slogans are acceptable (a specific console, AtariAge, etc), but you will have a better chance of winning if the slogan is broad.

The contest will run until Midnight (CST), Friday, April 26th, 2002. All submissions must be received by this time! After the contest has ended, we will announce the winner and post the entries for everyone to see. Please not that this contest only lasts one week, so don't procrastinate too much!

How to Enter

For your slogan to be considered, please understand these guidelines and conditions. Any questions may be directed to [email protected]:

  • Slogan Length - We don't have a set limit, but obviously you want to keep the slogan relatively short. We're not going to print a paragraph on the back of a t-shirt.
  • Duplicate Winners - in the event that two people submit the same winning slogan, the first person who submitted the slogan will be declared the winner.
  • Format - Simply send us an email with your slogan clearly indicated, and be sure to include your real name. You do not need to send your slogan in a graphic format, simple text in an email will do.
  • Multiple Submissions - While we will gladly accept multiple submissions, we ask that each slogan be unique from your previous submissions in some significant fashion. We reserve the right to reject slogans that differ only in some minor attribute from previous entries. We will gladly replace previous submissions with new entries if you so request.
  • Use of Copyrighted Text - If you use any copyrighted text, you must seek permission from the copyright holder before using that material as part of your submission.
  • Permission to Reprint - By submitting an entry (or entries) to this contest, you agree to allow AtariAge to reproduce your submission(s) without your having to grant permission or receiving compensation for the right to do so (except for the free t-shirt of course).

Slogan submissions and questions about the contest must be sent to [email protected]. We will post submissions publicly on this page after the contest is over, in order to be fair to all submissions. The contest may also be discussed in our Contests Forum.

Remember, the contest ends at Midnight (CST), Friday, April 26th, 2002!
