High Line T-Shirt Contest

FHL is holding a T-shirt design contest. The winning design will be worn at an upcoming City Council hearing, and later available in local NYC stores. Full details after the jump.

If you're not familiar with the High Line project, it's aim is to convert a retired elevated railway to public green space. We've covered it here a few times before.

Friends of the High Line T-Shirt Design Contest

Win Two Tickets to FHL’s Summer Benefit: July 13, 2005

Friends of the High Line is looking for a design for new T-shirts. The shirts will be worn by members of the public who want to show support for the High Line at an upcoming New York City Council hearing. Following the hearing, the shirts will be sold in local stores. Some guidelines:

• We’re looking for a bold design that will make High Line supporters clearly visible in a crowd.

• Although not required, we’re looking for a clear, concise message of support integrated into the design. For example, text could identify wearer as a “Friend of the High Line” or include other language indicating support.

• We intend to print the design on a grass-green T-shirt, but we will consider designs intended for printing on white T-shirts.

• Unorthodox designs are welcome.

The top four designs will be displayed on our Web site. The winning designer will receive two tickets to our Fifth Annual Summer Benefit on July 13 ($1,000 value).

Submissions must be in either Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator (digital files if submitted via e- mail; digital files on disc if submitted by postal mail). Submissions should be accompanied by designer’s name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address. Submissions must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11, 2005. The winner will be notified by Wednesday, May 25, 2005.
