    2017 IBRD™ TEE SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST IS ON!

    WE NEED YOU!


    The 7th Annual International Barefoot Running Day will be held on Sunday, May 7, 2017!

    It's that time of year again! Time to start the 2017 IBRD Tee Shirt DESIGN phase of our 2017 IBRD Tee Shirt Contest!

    The International Barefoot Running Day T-shirt design contest has begun! The contest idea was inspired by the threads with awesome barefoot sayings and some great foot print designs added to the Zazzle store shirts.

    In order to get the word out about 2017 International Barefoot Running Day and give us some awesome shirt choices for this wonderful event, we are going to have a contest. If you've got design skills, then we'd like to see what you can come up with! Please also feel free to submit past designs that did not win...we'd like to see them again, since so many of them were excellent!

    What is your vision of International Barefoot Running Day? What does IBRD mean to you? How would you represent IBRD to the world? If you can envision it in design, perhaps you can share it with us.

    If you have skills, and we know you do, please consider putting together something for the 2017 IBRD Tee Shirt Contest. Not only will we put the winning design on the official 2017 IBRD Tee Shirt, but we will use your graphic in our advertisements to get the word out about IBRD. We will begin accepting your submissions right away. We will collect them and then present them to the BRS members at the end of February, but we may extend the deadline if needed. We will vote on these designs immediately. The winner will be announced after the voting is over, about a week or so later, and then we will place the winning design in our Zazzle store. There, you will be able to purchase tee shirts (they have micro tech shirts too!) and other merchandise with the winning design on it. Remember, these are the OFFICIAL 2017 IBRD tee shirts and will be worn all over the world, and the winning design will also be used in ways to bring more attention to the day.

    The BRS shirt should contain 2017 International Barefoot Running Day, the IBRD web address (www.TheBarefootRunners.org/pages/IBRD), the date of the event (May 7, 2017), and if you can fit it just right and it doesn't detract from the artwork, the BRS logo (or leave the BRS logo off). Feel free to submit more than one design.

    The winner will receive lots of kudos from their peers, a 2017 IBRD Tee Shirt with their own winning design on it, and a pair of Xero Shoes (www.XeroShoes.com) YOUR CHOICE! AND...the runner-up will receive a DIY huarache kit! Thank you Xero Shoes for your generosity once again!

    Please email your designs to me at BarefootTJ@TheBarefootRunners.org. Along with the design, please attach all original artwork and fonts used to the email. Keep in mind when designing the graphics that the resolution should be high enough to put on a tee shirt. Two thousand pixels is the minimum width needed. It's understandable that for the sake of designing you may shrink them to fit on whatever template you make, but we'll need the large graphics when putting them into the Zazzle store.

    Let the games begin!

    Looking forward to seeing the great designs I'm sure will be submitted! I have an IBRD shirt from every year so far - can't wait to add to my collection! (Note the 2015 shirt in my avatar pic)

    Maybe skedaddle will let part of his artwork for my autism challenge be a part of this contest?

    Okay then. The sooner we know that, the sooner we can post the BAC press release in the Front Page news section. Even though it's already in the Barefootedness forum.
