Here’s the Creative brief set out on their website:

“Hard rock legends Black Sabbath have dominated the world since they formed in 1968 and have been widely “credited with creating heavy metal”, according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The success of their first two albums – Black Sabbath and Paranoid – marked a paradigm shift in the world of rock. Not until Black Sabbath upended the music scene did the term “heavy metal” enter the popular vocabulary to describe the denser, more thunderous offshoot of rock over which they presided.

In celebration of Black Sabbath’s long-awaited reunion tour and the European extension, Black Sabbath are inviting aspiring designers from around the world to submit their best graphic artwork as inspired by the catalogue of music from the original Black Sabbath lineup, including the provided “Loner” video*. One artist, as selected by Black Sabbath, will have their artwork produced and featured on a t-shirt to be sold on the European leg of their tour.

*Submitting artists are asked to take inspiration from Black Sabbath’s music but should focus the creative direction of their design on fresh, new material.”
