Three Filipino designers had their work selected from more than 18,000 entries submitted all over the world for the 2019 Uniqlo Tee Grand Prix (UTGP) Pokemon Collection! HNLee, Dana Asahan, and CTRLD were selected for their Dark Pokemon, Jigglypuff, and Pikachu designs, respectively. Congratulations to you all and we look forward to more creations from you soon!
In other news, the Grand Prize winner of the 2019 UTGP Pokemon competition has been officially disqualified for breaching competition rules. The winning artist Li Wen Pei had previously sold the design as apparel on Chinese ecommerce platform Taobao, when Uniqlo’s rules clearly state that submissions must be new designs that have not been previously sold in any format.
