Spencer Pride

2016 T-Shirt Design Contest

  • by

IMG_1654We are happy to announce our 5th annual Spencer Pride Festival T-shirt Design Contest!  Results from our prior years have resulted in fabulous designs for our “Free to Be” & “Focus on ALL Families” themes, among others.    Each year we found the creativity of the submissions to be fantastic.  Often, those fabulous designs made choosing just one a challenge!

We look forward to seeing the fabulous contest entries for 2016.  This is a special year for us, as we will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary Spencer Pride Festival.  We want the shirt to be the best we’ve ever had and we know – given then amazing talent of our supporters – that we will be looking over some amazing designs.

The winning design will receive a free 2016 Spencer Pride Festival t-shirt and will be recognized on all of our social media platforms for their talent.  We also recognize the designer on the shirt itself, ensuring that everyone knows who the creative talent was behind the design!

This contest officially starts today (January 17th) and will run through midnight on February 28th.   Anyone can submit a design and there is no limit to the number of submissions per person.  It’s important that the design incorporate the newly announced 2016 festival theme: “A Decade of Diversity.”

Designs must be submitted electronically via e-mail to  The full contest rules appear below.

Get your creative juices flowing and get started on your design!
