The Dark Knight Rises

The Fire Rises! A few weeks back we posted about an official t-shirt design contest, being hosted by Design By Humans, for The Dark Knight Rises, that will be judged by Christopher Nolan and producer Emma Thomas themselves. I, of course, expected there to be a massive amount of entries, both good and bad, and with only a few weeks left, the Design By Humans website has updated with a public gallery and voting for all of the current submissions. You can find the full gallery here and check out a few of our favorite designs below we found from all of the entries so far. A few of these are quite impressive, I want to wear them now!

For more info or to still submit your own design, visit the Design By Humans website. The contest is still open for entries until April 11th, so keep submitting if you've got a great idea, though now you know what you're up against. Don't forget, while this is being judged by Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas, the prizes include a total of $13,000 in cash and rewards. There are great designs with Bane and Batman, but what about Catwoman? I hope more excellent artwork comes in soon, there hasn't been one I've seen yet that I instantly think should win. Also, one of my favorite lines from this entire series is "Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up" which is why I had to include that one, too. Your favorite designs so far?

The second one is the best. IMO the rest are pretty generic.

You really think #9 looks "generic"? It's the most realistic IMO. #2 amazing too, though.

This was before Alex only had the first 5 or so. I like the new ones a lot actually. Especially the Bane ones.

Dalton Weaver on Apr 5, 2012


these are great! but i like the front and back one with the quote "why do we fall? so we learn to pick ourselves up."

Sooner32 on Apr 3, 2012


I like the one that's showing on this article...

jah p on Apr 3, 2012


I would buy the one with the "Why do we fall?" quote.

RFabry on Apr 3, 2012


Wow! Tough choices, I'd probably go with #2 or #4

MakeLevelTheRoad on Apr 3, 2012

Dpramroop on Apr 4, 2012

Philip J. Fry on Apr 3, 2012

Quanah on Apr 3, 2012


The Bane one is best. #2

Jay on Apr 3, 2012


Second and Fourth.

Xerxexx on Apr 3, 2012

Leo on Apr 3, 2012


2 and 4

stfugtfo on Apr 4, 2012


2 is winning by a HUGE landslide in the votes!!! (i think it deserves to win)

Dhfan805 on Apr 4, 2012

Moutchy on Apr 4, 2012


I would be most likely to wear #5.

Mlsyong91 on Apr 4, 2012

BinaryChaos on Apr 4, 2012


2 and 5

Armeetapus16 on Apr 4, 2012


#2 looks amazing. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

SuicidalOptimist on Apr 4, 2012


i like #4

Mr. Tibbs on Apr 4, 2012


I like the first one as I can pretend it's from The Dark Knight Returns and not one of Christian Bale's grumblefests.

Chris on Apr 4, 2012


more t-shirts needed

John Luo on Apr 4, 2012


See above, I added six more of the coolest ones I could find!

Alex Billington on Apr 4, 2012


The new one with the red bat on Bane's chest is quality. I'd buy that.

Normstar2k on Apr 4, 2012


Here is my favorite.

Banana on Apr 4, 2012


Catwoman is the best

JD on Apr 5, 2012


The second last one is such a beautiful, iconic image. I could see an image like that on the cover of the trilogy box-set they'll inevitably be releasing in the coming months or so.
