2019 Walk for the Animals T-Shirt Design Contest

Back by popular demand, we're reaching out to our community to design our unique 2019 Walk for the Animals T-Shirt! Each year the Walk for the Animals T-Shirt design is anxiously anticipated. Local artists have been asked to design the shirt in the past, but because of the popularity of last year's design contest, we're doing it again!

Local artist Maria Sapatta was chosen as our 2018 winner with this creative design...

Get those creative juices flowing! Just read the rules below and submit your artwork by the contest deadline to be eligible. 





The winning design will be printed on over 1,000 Walk T-Shirts that will be proudly worn by qualifying participants. (The shirt can only be earned by registering at Walk4theAnimals.com and raising a minimum of $150 for the Walk.) The winner will receive VIP Treatment on Walk Day including award and stage recognition, VIP Parking, VIP Tent Access for lunch and more. What better way to show your talent?



Here are the rules required for entry: 

  1. Shirt design must include dogs only. As much as we love our cats and other small pets, we discourage their participation in the Walk for their safety.
  2. All dogs portrayed in the design must be wearing a collar, tag and leash (if walking).
  3. Dogs cannot be shown in any negative situations that would be potentially harmful in real life.
  4. The Walk for the Animals, Spirit and VCA Animal Hospital logos must be incorporated into the design (Download on Walk4theAnimals.com, Prizes & Resources, Helpful Downloads). 
  5. Design setting should be in line with the Walk for the Animals event.
  6. We would prefer all art is submitted electronically in vector format with separated colors, but we can help if needed. Slight differences in orignal art may occur. Maximum amount of colors used is ten including white. 
  7. Winning artist agrees to sign a waiver to allow the Humane Society of Broward County use of their design, free of charge, for printing and promotional purposes. Artist will receive credit on all prints and posts.
  8. All designs must be submitted electronically to info@walk4theanimals.com by Saturday, September 22, 2018. Include artist’s name, address, phone number and email address. We will send an email confirming receipt. Submissions can be sent in jpg, png or pdf formats.

  9. Winning artist will submit a live, hi-res layered vector art file within 7 days of notification. Artist must agree to work with printer if slight changes are necessary for printing. If not received, an alternate winner may be chosen due to stringent print deadlines. (Remember: we can help!)

  10. All entries will be judged by an independent panel of judges and will be based on:
    • Design
    • Relevance to the Event
    • Adherence to the Humane Society of Broward County’s Mission Statement
  11. Winner will be contacted by phone and/or email and must agree to allow their photo to be used for promotion and recognition.
