OK readers — today is the day we begin to show off the designs for the Grand Rapids Griffins Alternate Jersey Design Contest. If you missed it, the contest was announced on August 1, and in total, 86 (eighty-six) submissions were received. Readers will have a chance to vote on each design, broken into eight groups, and spread over four days.

Beginning today and ending next week, we’ll reveal approximately 22 of the entries each day, in alphabetical order, in groups of 11 (or 10). You’ll have the opportunity to vote on every jersey submitted in each group. You can vote on any, some, none or all, but you’ll only be permitted to vote one time, so you’ll have to choose wisely. The top 3 (three) vote-getters each day (we’ll close the voting off after each day) will advance to the “finals” — so there will actually be 12 (twelve) finalists instead of the original 10. We’ve decided this is the most fair way to run the voting in light of the tremendous number of entries we’ve received. (Continue reading)

Greetings weekday Uni Watch readers! I’m excited to begin my annual month-long weekday run filling in for Paul by announcing an awesome new design contest, this time for the Grand Rapids Griffins (a professional hockey team in the American Hockey League, whose primary affiliate is the Detroit Red Wings). Recently we at Uni Watch were approached by Marissa Malson, Digital Marketing Manager for the Grand Rapids Griffins, to host their annual alternate jersey design contest:

For several seasons we have hosted a jersey design contest where fans are able to submit a design for one of the alternate jerseys the team will wear for a game during the upcoming season. Our winning designer receives a personalized version of the jersey they designed and is invited to the game that the team is wearing their jersey to see their design come to life.

Yet Another Rams Uni Contest (from a long time ago)

As most of you are probably aware, I recently put out a call for entries for an ESPN contest to redesign the Rams. We’ll have the results tomorrow.

But reader Randy Parkes remembers another Rams-redesign contest — from more than 40 years ago!

“The Rams had a contest in September of 1972,” he writes. “I was 16 at the time, and a die-hard Rams fan. I was also art-oriented, so when saw the contest in The Valley News, I drew a design. I never submitted it, but for some reason I saved it.” (Continue reading)

After a one week delay, today we announce the winner of the “Design An Ambulance” contest. There were, unfortunately, not as many entrants as past contests — perhaps due to the esoteric nature of the design — but I want to thank all those who . . . → Read More: Design An Ambulance Contest – Winner & Participants
