Online PR News – 11-May-2010 – – Adventure clothing brand WOMbat is giving wannabe fashion designers across the country the chance to get creative and win the chance to have their very own t-shirts sold on the UK’s high streets.
Between June and December the Cheshire-based firm which sells everything from mens hoodies to organic jewellery will pick one competition winner a month. That person’s t-shirt design will then be professionally made-up, printed and sold online and through WOMbat’s shops in England and Wales.
In line with WOMbat’s efforts to make its range of clothing as ethical as possible, the designs will be printed on Fairtrade cotton. As well as seeing their t-shirts on sale in UK shops, each competition winner will get a £100 WOMbat voucher.
WOMbat’s Victoria Tingey said: "We know the people who wear our clothes love the outdoors, love adventure and love ethically sourced products. We’re asking them to put all that passion down on paper and come up with a t-shirt design that will really appeal to our customers.
"You can find inspiration on top of a mountain, at the beach or in a cave or pothole – it doesn’t matter. We just want people to draw on their love of life and adventure. The more individual and personal the design are the better."
No one at WOMbat is particularly keen on rules and regulations, so they’ve been kept to a minimum. Full terms and conditions are available on the company’s website, but the basics are that designs must be original and entrants must be over the age of 18 and a resident of the UK or Ireland.
You can download a t-shirt template through WOMbat’s website and completed designs can either be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or handed in at one of WOMbat’s stores in Chester, Cambridge, Abersoch or Bristol.
Entries are now open and the winner of the first draw will be announced during the first week of June.
