Design our charity t-shirt competition

design a t-shirt competition

Calling all creatives!

Are you interested in fashion, art, or graphic design?

Passionate about Lyme disease awareness and/or supporting charities?

Then this competition is for you!

In readiness for Lyme Awareness Month and especially Wear Lime for Lyme day on Friday 7th May, we’re looking for a creative new t-shirt design for our charity that Lyme warriors and supporters can wear with pride.

The winning design will be printed on 100% organic white cotton t-shirts, in a UK factory using renewable energy and recyclable packaging. They will be sold via our Teemill store with all profits going to Lyme disease research that helps improve testing and treatment on the NHS.

We’re looking for a simple but impactful design based on any (or all) of the following themes:

  • Strength
  • Hope
  • Awareness
  • Support

How to enter

To take part, follow these simple steps:

  1. Brainstorm ideas around the campaign themes. We want the tee to have a positive message that celebrates the Lyme community.
  2. Create your design – it can be abstract or realistic, hand-drawn or graphic designed. It can be a text slogan or be a singular image – it’s up to you! It can include up to three colours, but the main feature MUST be a lime green.
  3. Submit your image to us email by Friday 26th March 2021. It must be either a high res (300dpi) PNG or JPEG file or vector (eps) file. Preferably a PNG24 file that’s around 2500px by 3500px. Include your name, number and social media handles if appropriate.

The competition is free to enter and you can submit as many designs as you like.

How the winner will be chosen

Caudwell LymeCo staff and volunteers will select the top ten designs. These will be whittled down to three via a social media poll, and the final winner will be chosen by our Trustees, ambassadors and LifeLyme members.

PRIZE: The winner will see their design sold as part of our awareness month campaign, and on our website thereafter. They’ll also bag themselves two of their designed t-shirts for free!

The t-shirts will be launched for sale in the lead up to Lyme Awareness Month in May, but will remain a staple of the charity’s clothing range for years to come.
