T-Shirt Design Contest

2019 Symposium

17th Annual Symposium on the Conservation and Biology of Tortoises and Freshwater Turtles

Calling all artists!

We're looking for a great t-shirt design to commemorate the upcoming 17th Annual Symposium on the Conservation and Biology of Tortoises and Freshwater Turtles. Entries will be accepted through Friday, May 10, 2019. If your design is selected, you'll receive not only a free t-shirt, but a one-year membership in the TSA and complimentary meeting registration! Additional details are available below. Thank you for your participation!

Guidelines

· Original designs only, please!

· Submit turtle-themed art for the back of the shirt only. The art will be centered on the back of the shirt.

· Do not include the TSA, TFTSG, or sponsor logos - we'll add those later in production.

· The design must be your own original, unpublished work and must not contain any third-party logos, trademarks, or copyrighted materials.

· No photographic images will be accepted.

· Please integrate the following verbiage into your design: 17th Annual Symposium on the Conservation and Biology of Tortoises and Freshwater Turtles, August 4-8, 2019, Tucson, Arizona.

· Art must fit inside a 14" x 14" square. The art itself should be at least 6" x 6"—if it’s too small, we won’t be able to use it.

· Art should be in one solid color (black). Do not submit shades, gradients, or transparencies of the color. We will be using the design on different color shirts, so the design may be printed in another color, to be selected by the TSA (based on what looks best on the shirt).

· Click below to upload your design by Friday, May 10, 2019.
