Want to make $1000? Design the 2016 Bloomsday shirt!

60,000 people could be wearing your shirt! And you get $1,000! 60,000 people could be wearing your shirt! And you get $1,000!
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Do you want to contribute to one of Spokane's most famous events and take your rightful place in Spokane history and have your art immortalized on a t-shirt until the end of time like Steve Kutsch, Randy Beers, Steve Merryman and Brian Henderson? Of course you do!

The Lilac Bloomsday Association, in cooperation with The Inlander, is now accepting designs for the 2016 finisher T-shirt. Deadline for submitting designs is Monday, September 21, 2015, and the Lilac Bloomsday Association will pay $1,000 for the design selected. 

The design can have up to 6 colors (there will also be a one-color imprint of the sponsor logo on the sleeve). Artist can recommend a shirt color, although final decision on that will rest with the Lilac Bloomsday Association. The words Lilac Bloomsday Run (or Bloomsday), Spokane, Washington, 2016 (or ’16), and Finisher must be incorporated into the design. In addition, since 2016 will mark the 40th Bloomsday, some recognition of the 40thrunning should be included in the design.

Artists should keep in mind that the design must be able to transfer well in the screen-printing process.

To see designs and colors of past shirts, click on History/ Highlights/Stats, T-Shirt & Poster History on the Bloomsday website (bloomsdayrun.org).

Design(s) should be mailed or delivered by September 21 to Lilac Bloomsday Association, 1414 N. Belt St., Spokane, WA 99201. If delivered in person to the Bloomsday office, please call first (838-1579, ext. 11) to make sure the office will be open. Alternately, designs may be delivered to The Inlander at 1227 W. Summit Parkway, Spokane, WA 99201 between 8:30 and 5:30, Monday through Friday. 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.

Please do not send CDs.

We discourage artists from submitting PDFs, because all electronic submissions will be printed on an inkjet printer for review by the committee, and these don’t display well. We recommend submitting designs in as polished a form as possible.

Artwork cannot be returned.

Artist of the design selected for the 2016 finisher’s shirt will be notified by mid-October. 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 until the first person crosses the finish line on May 1, 2016.

    NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Out of a senseless tragedy, many relatives of the 26 children and educators killed five years ago at Sandy Hook Elementary School have sought ways to find meaning in advocacy.
