Nicolas Heller, he of the Best New York T-shirt contest and other recent initiatives, has announced a new competition for charity: Best New York mask.
Submissions are being accepted through July 12, when Heller and judges Asa Akira, Chloe Sevigny, Gizmo Vintage and Snoeman will narrow the pool down to 16. After a public vote, two designs will be produced and sold, with the proceeds going to a COVID-19 charity.
Submissions must be on a black or white background
Designs can involve one to three colors
Entries must be submitted via Instagram. Post your design and tag @NewYorkNico and @Bongiornio (who Heller is collaborating with on the initiative), as well as the hashtag #BestNYMask.
Here are a few of our personal faves so far from the pool of entries.
