Annual T-Shirt Design Contest

Calling All Artists!

Each year we hold a design contest for our annual t-shirts, which are distributed in LGBTQIA+ History Month (October). Below are the criteria. Contest winner is determined by the Rainbow Center staff.  Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are closed. 

  • The message must highlight some theme related to the LGBTQIA+ community.
  • Please consider that each new ink color used on the shirt increases printing costs for the Rainbow Center.
  • We may ask for edits to meet our budgetary and design needs from the winning artist.
  • The design will be only on the front of the t-shirt.
  • The winner can obtain up to 5 free t-shirts (sizes small to XXXL). It is understood that the UConn Rainbow Center owns the right to the t-shirt design;
  • The final draft must be submitted in vector, jpeg, or png format.

Please see the gallery of t-shirts from past years in the Rainbow Center for inspiration.
