Drumroll please…. after a few days of public voting and much internal discussion, we’re proud to announce that Rob Metke of San Diego, the man behind “I Give A Hoot,” has been crowned Grand Prize Winner of our Inhabitat T-Shirt Contest!

Congrats to Rob for his thoughtful, wearable, and super-cute design that will grace the shirts of Inhabitat readers worldwide. Rob will receive the much-desired $150 Gift Certificate to Branch, and his design will be printed up immediately by T.S. Designs. We’d also like to honor our 2nd, 3rd, and Juror’s Choice designs…

2nd Prize: Jonathan Sabutis, Savannah, GA

3rd Prize: Katharina Winter, Nürnberg, Germany

Juror’s Choice: Joel Smith, Philadelphia, PA

Our first batch of t-shirts will feature Rob’s Grand Prize “I Give A Hoot” design for those of you who love to sport the cuteness front-and-center, as well as Jonathan’s “Tree/Root/Lungs/Heart” design, for the more sophisticated and less owl-inclined (gents). And stay tuned for future announcements about additional printings- we’re hoping to expand the t-shirt production to include some of the other finalists’ designs as well.
