T-Shirt Contest

UPDATE: The winner has been chosen. Learn more here.

One of the features of the last few Islandora Camps is the camp t-shirt given to all attendees. Every camp has its own logo. This year we'd like to reach out to you, the Islandora community, to design that t-shirt-worthy logo. In exchange for some prizes, of course.

Entries will be put up on the website for voting by camp attendees and a winner will be selected and announced June 11, 2013.

The Rules:

  • Camp Registration is not necessary to enter; anyone with an interest in Islandora is welcome to send in a design.
  • Line art and text are acceptable; photographs are not.
  • You are designing for the front of the shirt for an area up to 12 x 12 inches. Your design must be a single image.
  • Your design may be up to four colours. The t-shirt colour will be determined in part by the winning design.
  • By entering the contest you agree that your submission is your own work. The design must be original, unpublished, and must not include any third-party logos (other than the Islandora logo, which you are free to use in your design) or copyrighted material.

The Prizes:

  • One free registration to Islandora Camp PEI (or a refund if you are already registered)
  • One free registration to the Open Repositories 2013 conference (July 8 - 12 in Charlottetown)
  • Two extra t-shirts with your awesome logo
  • Bragging rights

How to Enter:

  • Please submit the following by email to conferences@islandora.ca:
    • Your full name
    • A brief explanation of your logo idea
    • Your logo entry as an attachment. Minimum 1000 x 1000 pixels. High-resolution images in .eps format are preferred. We will accept .png and .jpg for the contest, but the winner must be able to supply a high resolution VECTOR art version of their entry if it is selected as the winner.
  • Entries will be accepted through June 1, 2013.


  • Multiple entries allowed.
  • Submissions will be screened by the Islandora Team before posting to the website for voting.
  • All entries must be submitted by June 1st, 2013.
  • Voting will be open online from June 4 to June 7.
  • Voting will be restricted to community members registered with the camp website (camp registration not technically required, but we'd prefer you only sign up if you're strongly considering registering for the camp.)
  • By submitting your design, you grant permission for your design to be used by the Islandora project, including but not limited to website promotions, printed materials and (of course) t-shirt printing.
  • We reserve the right to alter your image as necessary for printing requirements and/or incorporate the name and date of the camp into the final t-shirt design. You are free to include these yourself as part of your logo.
  • The Islandora Team reserves the right to make the final decision.
