Calling all artists! Design the Malverne 5K’s official t-shirt


The Malverne Educational and Fitness Foundation (MEFF) is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Malverne 5K this October and to prepare, is asking artists to submit designs for its official t-shirt.

The artwork must be original, use 2 colors that will stand out on the white T-shirt, and 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, 2014.

All designs should be submitted in 500x500 pixels .jpeg format to Jan Kasal, contest coordinator, at info@malvernerun.org . Additional questions can be directed there as well. Deadline for submission is August 25 at 8:00 p.m. The artwork will be displayed on malvernerun.org website and will be judged by run participants. Their votes will determine the winning artwork.

The winning design will be announced on September 3 on malvernerun.org. The submissions that were not selected in prior years can be resubmitted. The author of the winning artwork will be asked to submit the artwork via email in editable Adobe Illustrator file format with text converted to outline. The artwork will become a property of the MEFF and the author will be rewarded $100.

The MEFF is a non-profit organization supporting educational and fitness projects in the Malverne Union Free School District.
