2024 Design-a-Sock Contest

Sock It to Me’s 20th Annual Design-A-Sock Contest is more than just a competition — it’s a celebration of creativity, individuality, and the human spirit.

This global event encourages creatives from all corners to express themselves and share their wildest ideas for sock designs.

The winner will receive a $2,000 cash prize. Second place will win a prize of $1,000, and third place will receive $650. All of the winning sock designs may be produced in one of the company’s future product lines.

Sock It to Me is open to people aged 18 and older. Parents and legal guardians of children under 18 may also submit designs created by their children.

Each person may submit up to 5 designs. Each design should be accompanied by its own entry form. Up to 6 colors may be used per design. Black and white are counted as colors.

Approximately 30 semi-finalists will be chosen and offered for public voting between 12th August and 18th August, 2024. The semi-finalist judging and finalist voting will be based on the following criteria:

  1. Simplicity of design
  2. Use of a maximum of six colors
  3. Use of colors that are flat and solids, NO shading, blending, or half tones
  4. Use of pattern
  5. Use of imagery, themes, patterns, or designs that are different from our current line

The Design-a-Sock Contest is an annual celebration of designers and art, community and diversity, fashion, and socks. Sock It to Me has been hosting this design contest every single year since the company was founded in 2004. It has been a fundamental and extremely crucial backbone of the company, as the competition has steadily and powerfully contributed to Sock It to Me’s growth year after year.
