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.


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!

Please note: designs including the NASA logo will not be accepted.

  • 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Princess Awesome store credit and a $50 Spoonflower credit.

Princess Awesome

Clothes That Rule. Like She Does.

Princess Awesome is a company founded by women - mothers - who want girls to be able to express themselves through their clothing. We are committed to making clothes that girls want to wear, and that parents want to see on their daughters. Our guiding principle is to listen to what girls like to wear, do, and play, and to make that available to them - so girls can wear all that they are.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can enter?
This contest is open to ALL Spoonflower community members who are 18 years of age as of Tuesday, January 15, 2019. All submitted designs must be the original work of the entrant. Please do not use stock images or base your design on the work of another artist.
How many designs can I enter?
You can enter only ONE DESIGN in this contest. Designs entered in previous Spoonflower contests or public designs previously uploaded to Spoonflower are not eligible.
Can I share my entry on social media and make it available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace before voting opens?
The spirit of the Design Challenge is to give a creative prompt that inspires designers to create a new design that speaks specifically to the theme we have selected. Spoonflower is seeking an exclusive set of designs, so all designs should be new to Spoonflower. We absolutely encourage sharing your process and finished design on the web and you can make your challenge entry for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace, but to ensure that your work is eligible for the challenge, we ask that it is not an existing design from your public portfolio that has been previously uploaded to Spoonflower.
Who will judge the contest?
All designs will be eligible for public voting, and the popular vote determines the top 50 winning designs. The first place winner will be the fabric design with the most votes.
Who can vote?
Anyone can vote (when voting opens on Thursday, January 17, 2019), but only one set of votes may be submitted per individual. Email addresses will be collected from voters. Duplicate votes are filtered using fraud detection software and not counted toward final totals. Designers will be disqualified for incentivizing or compensating votes.
What if I don't want my design to be purchased by other people?
By participating in this contest, you are granting permission to make your design available to the public for voting and you are granting permission for Spoonflower to make your design for sale only if your design finishes in the top 50.
Am I giving up the copyright of my design by entering it?
You are not giving up ownership of your design, but by entering your design in the contest, you give us the non-exclusive right, should your design finish in the top 50, to make it available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace per the customary terms of the Spoonflower Marketplace. For any sales generated in the Marketplace, you will receive up to a 15% commission. You will always be credited for your design and you are free to continue to sell it on your own, now and in the future.
