Each year we hold a contest for the next t-shirt design for our annual Visibility and Awareness campaign. Below are the criteria. The submissions are accepted and a winner is determined by the Rainbow Center staff.  Deadline has passed for 2017 and the winning shirt is now displayed in the above gallery.

  • The message must highlight diversity & inclusion, particularly gender and/or sexuality;
  • The design must be simple enough to be in white ink, printed on colored t-shirts. However, all designs will be considered;
  • The design must include 1998, the year we were established within the theme (see examples);
  • The UConn Rainbow Center website must be included at the bottom of the design;
  • The current year of copyright must be included on the design;
  • The winner can obtain up to 4 free t-shirts (sizes small to xxxl). It is understood that the UConn Rainbow Center owns the right to the t-shirt design;
  • All who submit a design will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Dunkin’ Donuts giftcard, one entry per person;
  • The final draft must be submitted in camera-ready jpeg format.
  • Deadline for submissions will be Friday, September 8, at 5pm.

Please see the gallery of t-shirts from the past in the Rainbow Center. It serves as a historic display with inspiration and winning designs.
