    Thank you to all who have submitted artwork for our tee shirt contest! I knew you would come through! Whew!

    I made a mistake though, and I am sorry. If you are considering creating artwork for this year's contest, could you please add a noticeable heading/headline to your artwork stating 10th Annual International Barefoot Running Day? I think it’s important to note that we’ve been doing this for a full decade. This heading can be placed wherever you wish on your final design. Thank you!


    I'll be honest... I fret asking for people to step up to submit artwork for this year's IBRD; past years have been lacking great interest in this area.

    BUT, and reluctantly, here goes...

    If you have ANY sort of graphic arts skills/abilities, PLEASE consider creating artwork for 2020 IBRD. The winner will receive a tee shirt of their choice with their winning artwork on it from our Zazzle store and a pair of minshoes of their choice huarache kit from Xero Shoes as well.

    2020 IBRD™ TEE SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST IS ON!

    WE NEED YOU!

    The 10th Annual International Barefoot Running Day™ will be held on Sunday, May 3, 2020!

    It's that time of year again! Time to start the 2020 IBRD Tee Shirt DESIGN phase of our 2020 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 2020 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 2020 IBRD Tee Shirt Contest. Not only will we put the winning design on the official 2020 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 2020 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 2020 International Barefoot Running Day, the IBRD web address (www.TheBarefootRunners.org/pages/IBRD), the date of the event (May 3, 2020).

    The winner will receive lots of kudos from their peers, a 2020 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!

    Is the contest only for members of BRS? My cousin is a graphic designer. She might be willing to submit, but she's not a barefoot runner.

    Not that there have been any rules in place about who can take part, traditionally, we've only had BRS members to submit their artwork. With that being said, it would only take her creating an account on the site to become a member. We don't spam or sell our members' data/info, so she would not have to worry about any invasion of her privacy. Would you please ask her if she would be up for it? I'm sure she's well worth compensating, as all who volunteer are, but we wouldn't be able to pay her. Thank you so much. Please let me know.

    Hi Sly! ;)

    Being a Linux user, I use "The Gimp" which is an alternative to Photoshop and is available on Linux/Mac/Windows.
    It's free, but certainly not as powerful as a recent Photoshop (The last Photoshop I used was Photoshop 7 (7.0, not CS7!), so a rather old one). It kind of works like Photoshop but some things are handled in a different way, so it may take some time to get used to it.

    Note : I just googled "Photoshop 7", it seems this old version is now legally available for free.
