Everyone at our operation office would like to thank all the readers who enjoy T-1 WORLD CUP, and the 24 participant designers from around the world.

Here's how we decide the winner of T-1 WORLD CUP.
T-shirts designed by 24 designers from 13 countries will be sold from June 9th 2006 (Fri) to July 10th 2006 (Mon). The t-shirts will only be sold through the Internet, and only during this period. The design which sold the most will become the "T-1 WORLD CUP Champion T-shirt", and the designer of the champion t-shirt will be the "T-1 WORLD CUP Champion". The numbers sold will be calculated through the sum of the 4 sizes sold for each design.
There may be multiple winners should there be a tie in the most numbers sold.
Cancels after the sales period will be excluded from the calculation to select the winner. However, should there be an intentional cancel of orders of the parties involved, the winning contestant may have their championship taken away.
Please read this page for more information on purchase/cancel of t-shirts.

Anyone can purchase the t-shirts from our T-1 WORLD CUP website if you can view our website and can proceed with the order system without trouble.
The t-shirts will be sold for approximately one month, from June 9th 2006 (Fri) to July10th 2006 (Mon). Delivery of goods is scheduled around August 2006, since the t-shirts are made after this sales period.
