Request for proposal for a T-shirt design


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


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 be printed in the front of the shirt and will incorporate the following text: Malverne 5K, 2015.
