Bloomsday 2021 T-shirt Design Contest

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

The Lilac Bloomsday Association is now accepting designs for the coveted 2021 Bloomsday Finisher T-shirt. Deadline for submitting designs is Friday, October 16, 2020, and the Lilac Bloomsday Association will pay $1,000 for the design selected. Entries may be submitted at the Bloomsday building.  

The design can have up to 6 colors.  Artist can recommend a shirt color, although the final decision on that will rest with Bloomsday. The words Lilac Bloomsday Run (or Bloomsday), Spokane, Washington, 2021 (or ’21), and Finisher must be incorporated into the design.

Design(s) should be mailed or delivered by October 16th to Lilac Bloomsday Association, 1414 N. Belt St., Spokane, WA 99201.  Please note the following:

  • Designs should be no larger than 13 inches high and 11 inches wide.
  • Artist’s name, postal address, email address and phone number must be on the back of each design.
  • We discourage artists from submitting PDFs or other electronic files.  We recommend submitting designs in as polished a HARD COPY form as possible.
  • Artwork cannot be returned.

Artist of the design selected for the 2021 finisher’s shirt will be notified by early November. Please note that because of Bloomsday’s tradition of not revealing the T-shirt color or design ahead of time, the winner will not be able to reveal that his/her design has been selected.  This is Spokane’s best kept secret.  Failure to observe this provision will result in forfeiture of all money paid to the artist by the Bloomsday Association.

Questions regarding this process can be directed to Race Director Jon Neill, jon@bloomsdayrun.org, phone (509) 838-1579, ext. 11.
