    2019 IBRD™ TEE SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST IS ON!

    WE NEED YOU!



    The 9th Annual International Barefoot Running Day™ will be held on Sunday, May 5, 2019!

    It's that time of year again! Time to start the 2019 IBRD Tee Shirt DESIGN phase of our 2019 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 2019 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 first place...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 2019 IBRD Tee Shirt Contest. Not only will we put the winning design on the official 2019 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 early in March, 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 (yes, we're pretty relaxed around here), 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 2019 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 2019 International Barefoot Running Day, the IBRD web address (www.TheBarefootRunners.org/pages/IBRD), the date of the event (May 5, 2019).

    The winner will receive lots of kudos from their peers, a 2019 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 Steven and Lena from 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.

    Looking forward to another awesome IBRD!

    I had a feeling this day would come. We've run out of time, and we haven't received one IBRD tee shirt design submission. We will have to try using a past runner-up design with the artist's permission. If this can't be done, we will have to forego a design and a tee shirt to represent IBRD this year. sigh

    TJ, what about using last years second place selection for this year? I would hate to see a year go by without a new IBRD shirt.

    Thanks, Dutchie.

    Ken Bob and I are already considering this option. I've contacted a past contributor to the contest. If she doesn't respond, then we'll select another one. The thing is, the design will have to be changed to this year's date, and without the original vectored file and/or software used to create it, it will be difficult to do.

    I can't get a hold of the second place winner from last year, and I've tried several times over the past few months regarding other things I've been needing to ask him about (Skedaddle). Besides, let's say I could. How do I go about changing the date on this design (or any design)? I have no graphic software, nor would I know how to use it (not my thing).

    Using previous years runners up etc... sounds like a good idea to me -subject obviously to the very good technical point you made TJ about needing to change the date part!
    -think I’m quietly concerned about skeddadle -haven’t heard from him since he last posted saying he was having health problems :(...
    Have u maybe tried contacting Paul Beales? I know he backed off from chapter president duties, but I seem to recall that he had some design skills (could be wrong of course!). Perhaps he’d be able to help show us how to ‘tinker’ with a ‘vectored’ file -whatever that might be (am so way out of my depth on techy stuff...:hilarious:...)..

    We have had one submission just hours after you and I spoke about this last. I'm afraid it's too small (74K) a file to print on tee shirts though, but we're working on it.

    I am really worried about Sked. I've tried several times to contact him but no reply. Did he say what specifically his health problems were?

    I also hope Skedaddle is okay and just off-board. I always enjoyed his posts.
    As far as IBRD shirts go, I have no graphics design software nor the proper skills to use it - otherwise I would be glad to help.
    I would be very sad to see no tee shirt for this year. :( I have one from every year dating back to the first IBRD in 2011.
