2017 T-shirt theme design contest

Request for proposal for a 2017 T-shirt theme design


The MEFF is a non-profit organization supporting educational and fitness programs in the Malverne Union Free School District, NY. One of the foundation’s fundraising activities is the organization of a 5K run/walk in October. Each year, the MEFF asks the public to submit a T-shirt design related to the 5K run. The public votes on submissions and the artwork that has received the most votes is selected. The contest is open to any artist who will submit artwork following the guidelines.


The artwork must be original, use 1 color that will stand out on the orange T-shirt. It must be suitable for the traditional screen print (no gradients). The artwork will incorporate the following text: Malverne 5K, 2017. The design will be printed on the front of the shirt.

Rules and Timeframe

Please, submit the artwork in .jpeg format to Jan Kasal, MEFF president and contest coordinator using the Contact tab above. Use the same contact, if you have additional questions. Deadline for submissions is by 8 p.m. (ET) on September 8, 2017. We will display all the submissions (jpeg) on this website. Runners, their families, and friends will evaluate the artworks and their votes will determine the winning artwork. We’ll announce the results on this website on September 20, 2017. The artwork will become a property of the MEFF and we’ll reward the author with $100. The artists are welcome to resubmit their artwork that was not selected in previous years.

You can review designs from previous years.
