If you've ever wished someone could walk a mile in your shoes, now's your chance. Vans has launched Global Custom Culture, a shoe customization contest that could put your doodles on the feet of thousands of people. Artists can download the template and then customize it digitally or print it out old-school style.
The competition is worldwide, but Vancouver participants can get expert hints (plus some collaborative inspo) from a Creative Workshop at the Granville Street Vans store. The workshop, held on this Saturday, September 14 at noon will be hosted by WKNDRS, a Vancouver-based skate brand known for their sassy pins and patches.
Three winners get $25,000 USD (that's 33,000 loonies, folks) plus an opportunity to partner with Vans to donate another $100,000 to a charity that champions creativity.
So open up photoshop or crack that crayon box—and doodle for those dolla dolla bills. Plus worldwide recognition and the pride of a job well-done, of course.
