2016 Club T-Shirt Competition

Hi all,

We are currently taking in designs for the newest club t-shirt! The deadline was January 31, 2016, but we will extend it to February 12, 2016. That gives you some time to design the logo. The winner will have his/her logo plastered on the club t-shirt PLUS he/she will receive a club t-shirt free of charge! All entries will be displayed sometime during fencing practice in February (date to be announced later). It will be voted on by the general membership! Yay! We'll number all entries so no one will know who did what. That way, voting will be less biased.

Here are the rules and criteria for the contest:
1. It may either be a black and white logo OR a colour logo.
2. It must be a fencing-related logo for the club.
3. It must be an original design. No plagiarism please!
4. No profanity, offensive remarks or inappropriate content are allowed.
5. The logo may have a combination of words, images or both. It is up to the artist to decide what they want in the logo.
6. Jpeg files are allowed. Other files are probably allowed - please talk to us in advance.
We recommend you use free legit programs like GIMP or Inkscape for illustrating your design.
7. Please make the logo at a considerable size so it may be enlarged for the t-shirt (if necessary). We will most likely be printing them off on 8.5 x 11 inch paper so try to make it big and clear (at least clear enough on normal sized paper).
8. One entry per person.
9. Winning submissions will become property of the UBC Fencing Club.

I suppose that is about it for rules. Pretty much anything goes (just nothing offensive, please!) :) Please send us your logo design at the club email address: fencingubc@gmail.com

If you are curious what was done in previous years, you can always ask members who have been around longer, or check out facebook for some. We had a few shirts up from various years.  If you have any other questions, please drop us an email. :) Good luck to all who enter!!

Voting will happen on the same day as club elections on March 7, 2016!
