Crowdsourcing Week 2013 is thrilled to announce the five winning designs for our “Crowd Design for Good” campaign that crowdsources art for fun and a great cause. Crowdsourcing Week partnered with 99designs and Kiva to empower developing communities around the world through a t-shirt design competition.

At Crowdsourcing Week, we believe we can co-create our future and solve problems through collaboration. Social empowerment and responsibility is embedded in our core values and we firmly believe that doing well and doing good does not have to be exclusive.

We solicited designs for a t-shirt competition, through our partner 99designs, centered on the theme of the upcoming Crowdsourcing Week 2013 conference in Singapore, June 3 – 7. The response was overwhelming! We received over 250 entries for the competition from designers who submitted some fabulous art that represents Singapore and crowdsourcing.

We are grateful to Jesse Thomas, the creative genius who picked the winning designs. Jesse is the CEO and Founder of JESS3, was picked by Mashable as one of the “Web’s Hottest Designers”.

So without further ado, here are the five winning designers (in random order).
