I never realized how great of a canvas for design hats can be until I checked out the entries in the New Era XC Design Competition. This competition gives young designers the chance to win £10,000 by creating the best original New Era hat design.

Contestants are given a box with a blank hat and some markers. Clearly all these students needed was their imaginations because the hats of the New Era XC Design Competition are unlike any hats ever seen before. Check them out in the gallery above and read more to learn about this creative cap competition.
