Now that The NewStandard has broken new ground in journalism, want to help us set a trend in fashion, too?
The TNS T-shirt design contest offers you a chance to show off your skills and create a logo that our news junkies can wear with pride.
We know our members signed up to support our journalism mission. Now itâ€™s time to offer an extra incentive. What better way to let our readers spread the word about independent media than to offer a one-of-a-kind, limited-edition T-shirt to people who sign up as contributing members? Weâ€™ll also reward our long-time fans by giving shirts to current members who increase their donations.
Our requirements are pretty straightforward. The design just has to say "The NewStandard" and include our web site: www.newstandardnews.net. The rest, including more verbiage, we leave to your artistic discretion. But keep in mind:
The design will be screen-printed on sweat-free, union-made, cotton Tees
The logo can be any size, but will appear on the front of the T-shirt only
Designs can be spot printed in up to six colors, but the cost of printing will be a consideration in choosing the design
You can enter up to three designs
TNS will assume the copyright to the chosen logo
In true democratic fashion, weâ€™re going to post the design candidates on our site and let our readers help choose the winner.
So whatâ€™s in it for you? First, youâ€™re helping The NewStandard continue to publish. Second, your artwork will become part of the TNS "brand" and be worn wherever our readers go. And finally, regardless of whether your design is selected, weâ€™ll post your bio and website in the contest entrantsâ€™ page of our website.
The design submission deadline is
January 15 The deadline has been extended to Jan. 30 to accommodate requests for late entries. Please send all submissions as high-resolution JPEG files to Tshirt at newstandardnews dot net. Be sure to pass this announcement on to any artists you know!
