Empower Missouri T-Shirt Design Contest

What’s this?

Here’s the thing – Empower Missouri needs T-Shirts. We want our staff and volunteers to be able to wear a t-shirt with pride knowing that their helping us fulfill our mission to advocate for the well-being of all Missourians.. But there’s a problem – none of us are artists. If anyone on staff designed the shirt, it would probably just be our logo. So instead, we’re taking submissions now through Sep. 2nd for artists to submit their idea for how our T-Shirt should look. On Sep. 3rd, we’ll post all the submitted designs, and our followers will vote on the best one. Whichever gets the most votes wins!

What can I win?

Quite a few things! For starters, the artist whose design gets the most votes will win a $250 cash prize. Their art will then be printed onto our new t-shirts, which we will sell on our website and at our events. The artist will get a free T-Shirt with their design on it as well.

The artist whose design gets the second-most votes will win a $100 gift card. So even if your T-Shirt doesn’t get chosen, you can still win a great prize!

What are the rules?

There are a few specifications for how to submit the design (below), but other than that, we really want you to just let your creative juices flow. We’ve provided a media kit here, which has our logo and our brand colors and fonts, but you don’t have to use them if you don’t want to! Their only there for guidance and if you feel the need to include them.

We also want you to feel free to include your artist signature or your tag in the design. We want you to be getting credit for your work!
