Fandemicon T-shirt Contest

Do you have a great idea that will look awesome on our Fandemicon T-shirts? Here is your chance to get it in print! We challenge you to design our next Fandemicon T-shirt! The winner of the t-shirt design contest will receive a t-shirt with their design and a $50 Michael’s gift card.

Be creative! The design is up to you, so as long as it fits within our guidelines. Shirt base color is yours to determine! We are looking for an original design, so no copyrighted materials.

The design should be for the front of a t-shirt, not front and back.

Designs may be submitted in digital format to the email fandemicon@gmail.com with the subject “T-Shirt Design Contest” by Wednesday, August 14, 2020. Multiple designs may be submitted, up to 3 per person.

Facebook voting will take place for the library’s top designs Saturday August 15 to Friday August 21. The winner will be announced during Virtual Fandemicon on Saturday August 22 at 1:05pm on the Utica Public Library’s Facebook page.

Your design must incorporate the words or logo for Fandemicon and the Utica Public Library.
