Design an artist T shirt; Earn Respect, Notoriety and Moolah! An artist fee of $200 will be awarded for the selected design. We hope the winning design will help to promote the Inc. and the work of our talented membership across our city.

In keeping with the Inc. logo the successful T shirt Design will use the colour scheme of red, white and/or black on a white or black   T shirt. In short: 1-2 colour design (red, white, or black) on either a white or black T shirt.
