RAW T-Shirt Design Contest

Do you want your artwork featured on RAW Artist’s branded T-Shirts distributed NATIONALLY?

Good news! We are now ACCEPTING ENTRIES for our 2018 T-Shirt design contest!


Who can enter: Any RAW Artist of any craft


Prize: Free RAW shows + blog feature


How to enter:

  1. Create your original design by November 6th in one OR both of the TWO categories: “Support Local Art” and “RAW Artists.”  You may enter ONE design in EACH category (although not required.)
  2. Post your design to your Instagram with the hashtag #rawartistsdesign2018 and tag @rawartists in your photo
  3. Make sure your design FOLLOWS ALL RULES outlined below. Design will be immediately rejected if it does not follow all rules.
  4. Tell your friends to VOTE (after November 6th!)


What to expect:

  • Once you post your design to your Instagram, we will compile all entries into one album on our RAW Artists Facebook page.
  • This is where the voting happens! The TEN photos with the most “likes” on Facebook will move onto the semi-finals! Make sure to tell your audience to vote for your design! Voting will continue through November 31st.
  • Once the top 10 designs are chosen by voters, RAW may or may not choose an additional “wild card” design (or two) to advance to the semi-finals.
  • If your design is chosen for the semi-finals, voters will again have the chance to express their support by “liking” your photo in the semi-finalists album we will create. Voting will continue through December 22nd.
  • The FIVE photos with the most “likes” will advance to the finals!
  • RAW Artists will choose the winner from the top 5 finalists.
  • Winner will be announced by January 1st, 2018!

  2. Design must either say “Support Local Art” and/or “RAW Artists”
