UNIQLO has chosen the popular video game Pokémon to serve as the theme of this year’s UT Grand Prix T-Shirt contest. Twenty four designs were chosen for production out of the 18,000 entries. The top prize was awarded to China’s Li Wen Pei who created a graphic comprised of three Magikarp and one Gyrados using a “totem style” to signify the “evolution from weakness to mightiness.” In second place is Japan’s Mizukilobyte who placed a vision test on the reverse of the tee. Rounding out the top three is the Emily from the USA who transformed her “pikachill” design into a summery photo.

Winners were chosen by a judging panel that included  UNIQLO UT NIGO, CEO of The Pokemon Company Tsunekazu Ishihara, and managing director of Game Freak, inc. Ken Sugimori. The panel released a statement celebrating all those who participated:

“‘Pikachu‘ always comes to mind when we think about “Pokémon”. However, with Pokémon as the theme of the global t-shirt design competition “UT GRAND PRIX 2019”, both UNIQLO and The Pokémon Company were so delighted and surprised to receive all of your precious Pokémon memories turned into such amazing graphic T-shirt designs.

There were so many good T-shirt designs, and the submissions came from over 40 countries! We are so impressed with how you express your design mindset and techniques using the world of Pokémon as your inspiration.

We hope you enjoy the UTGP 2019 SPECIAL JUDGES’ SELECTIONS from all over the world and across all generations.”

The Pokémon UT Grand Prix T-shirts is available online and in UNIQLO stores now. Adult sizes retail for $14.90 USD and kids sizes start at $9.90 USD.
