Creative Circus annual T-Shirt Design Competition

Enter the 1st Annual Creative Circus T-Shirt Design Competition for a chance to win cash and to have your design featured on official Creative Circus apparel! The winning design will be printed on a limited edition run of t-shirts that will be available to purchase on campus and online.

Current students (including Summer @ the Circus students) and alumni can submit designs. Judges will select the top three finalists, showcase them online and allow voters to choose their favorite design. The Creative Circus community scores each design & the best of the best are printed and sold.

Rules: Designs should be placed on a transparent background. Designer can decide to use the Circus logo if desired. Original artwork is encouraged! All designs must be large and high-resolution enough to print. Voting will take place via Facebook.

The designer must submit his or her own original artwork only. Any non-original logos, photos, or images used in the design must be used only with the express, written permission of the source and also grant The Creative Circus unlimited, free use of that logo, photo, or image.

T-shirt designs must be submitted by 8/06/17 to The Creative Circus via email to: kimberly.bianco@creativecircus.edu. Please use “T-Shirt Contest Design Submission” as your subject line.
