T-Shirt Design Contest for the 2013 Fund Drive presents:

T-Shirt Design Contest for the 2013 Fund Drive


WRIR 97.3 LP FM announces its 2013 T-shirt design contest to complement the independent radio station’s upcoming 2013 Fund Drive. Now until February 10th 2013, WRIR will solicit designs from local as well as national artists. If chosen, the winner’s artwork will appear on the hundreds of T-shirts worn by WRIR supporters. The contest winner will receive WRIR’s top fundraiser package, and will be credited on-air and online throughout the Fund Drive.   

There is only T-shirt design contest each year! If you want the chance to have your art on the front of the nicest people in Richmond, be sure to send us your design by February 10th.


• The following 4 items MUST be included in your design to be considered: 

  1. “WRIR” 
  2. “97.3 FM”
  3. "Richmond Independent Radio” 
  4. "Spring 2013"

 The WRIR logo does not have to be on the design, but if you'd like to include it, the files you need can be found at the bottom of this post.

  • Your design can have a maximum of two colors.
  • You will be designing for the front of the t-shirt.
  • Entrants may submit up to 3 designs.
  • The design cannot violate any copyright laws or existing trademarks.
  • By submitting your artwork, you give us non-exclusive rights to use the image in the design of a WRIR T-Shirt as well as for other WRIR promotional materials.

 Entries will be judged according to the following criteria:

  1. Originality of the design
  2. Composition
  3. Overall Impression

Note:  The design should not focus on one aspect of WRIR’s diverse programming. We offer music, news and talk programming. A design with just an album on a turntable, or musical instruments, for example would be music exclusive, and will not be considered. 

All entries will be evaluated by a panel of WRIR judges whose decisions are final and binding on all matters. All prizes may not be awarded in the event an insufficient number of qualified entries are received that meet the minimum standards. The winner will be announced on air and on www.wrir.org at the start of the 2013 Fund Drive. 


Each entry must be accompanied with your first and last name, phone number, and valid email address. Your information will NOT be shared or sold to solicitors. Names will only be used to announce the winner or to acknowledge the contest participants.
