MD/DE/WV T-shirt contest

Design Deadline extended ONE LAST TIME to February 4!

Calling all writers and illustrators—lets work together to make our region some awesome T-shirts!

How it works:

WRITERS come up with a pithy, funny, clever, tongue-in-cheek or oh-so-true T-shirt slogan that has to do with, writing, drawing, art or creativity. You may submit up to 6 slogans. Email your slogan ideas to by October 1, 2018, please type T-SHIRT CONTEST SLOGAN in the subject line. You can create slogans meant to be displayed on front and back, or just one side. Remember, this is a T-shirt and we are a children’s organization so, make it short and sweet, and keep it clean!

THEN our judges will choose their top 3 favorites.

The Slogan Winners are:
Eat, sleep, write, repeat. – Alana Tyson
So many manuscripts, so little time – Julia Hatch
Illustrators color outside the lines – Alana Tyson

ILLUSTRATORS – once the top 3 slogans are chosen, it’s your turn! Create art and typography for each slogan that would be printed on a T-shirt. You may submit up to 6 designs to by February 4 please type T-SHIRT CONTEST DESIGN in the subject line. Remember, this is a T-shirt so the illustrations or designs must be graphic and eye catching. You can design both the front and back or just one or the other. We will need room to place the artist and writers name as well as the regional logo.

Finally, our 6 winners (3 slogans and 3 designs) will receive FREE T-shirts and have their name printed on all the T-shirt Designs.

Everyone will have the opportunity to order a T-shirt of their very own to pickup at the March 2019 conference.
