Ready, set, design! Sock It to Me has put out a call for entries for its 12th Annual Design-a-Sock contest, from now through September 30, 2016 for submissions.

The first place winner gets $2,000 and their design will be manufactured on real socks; they’ll also receive 15 pairs of awesome Sock It to Me socks from their current line. The second and third place winners will receive $500 with 10 pairs of socks and $250 with five pairs of socks, respectively.

On the roster of celebrity judges are comic book creator Lucy Knisley, Atlanta Hawks star Mike Scott, The McCarthys‘ Tyler Ritter and feline activist Lil Bub along with several others with impeccable taste. The judges will narrow all entries down to their pick of top 30 designs on October 4, 2016. From there, voting gets opened to Sock It to Me fans for the final say.
