Moon Landing with Princess Awesome | Entries due by January 15

We’re over the moon to announce that our friends from Princess Awesome are back! If you missed our first challenge with the children’s apparel company, catch up on all the details and see the winning design on one of their signature twirly dresses.

This time around, Princess Awesome is bringing along Challenger Center to celebrate a momentous occasion: the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon! On July 20, 1969, mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin were the first two people to land on the moon and to celebrate, Princess Awesome and Challenger Center are teaming up to create a dress commemorating the anniversary featuring this week’s winning design. While creating your moon-inspired pattern, be sure to focus on design elements that will inspire little girls everywhere to dream of space exploration. If you’re inspired by the night sky, the moon, and the technology that helped us reach it – show us what that means to you. We can’t wait to bring one of your designs to life so that the girls who wear it this summer – celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and dreaming of traveling to space – may one day find themselves there. Please note: designs including the NASA logo will not be accepted. Entries will be previewed at the fat quarter size: 21” x 18”. Submissions close January 15 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Voting begins January 17. Winners will be announced January 24. See official rules.
