Vans is on the hunt for the University of Illinois’ best artists, creatives, designers, and sneaker heads.

UIUC has been selected as one of the schools to participate in Vans’ Collegiate Shoe Design Competition. Interested? All you have to do is e-mail a picture of your own original artwork or graphic design to the e-mail address vans@neatoagency.com by tomorrow — Wednesday, November 4th.

The top selections from U of I will earn a spot in the field of 30 finalists. These finalists will have their work showcased at an art gallery party in downtown Chicago on November 19th. The winner will take home a $500 Vans Gift Card!

$500 is one helluva game changer for someone’s sneaker collection. And it could be you taking home the grand prize. So submit your work now!
