Family Circle Cup T-Shirt Design Contest

October 23, 2007 04:48 PM
The Family Circle Cup is a tournament that believes in showcasing talent not just on the court, but off as well.  The fifth annual Family Circle Cup T-shirt Design Contest kicks off this week and is open to artists and would-be artists ages 13 and up.  The goal of the contest is to submit a design that truly captures the image and excitement of the 35th anniversary of this premier women’s tennis event.  The winning artwork will be featured on the tournament’s official T-shirt, which will be available during the 2008 Family Circle Cup scheduled for April 12-20 in Charleston, South Carolina.  The winning artist will receive exciting prizes as well as recognition both on-site during the tournament and leading up to the event on the tournament’s official website.
“The graphic arts community really gets behind this contest each year, and the quality of the designs keep getting better and better,” commented Elizabeth Skogman, Family Circle Cup Marketing Manager.  “In honor of our 35th anniversary, the winning design should not only be unique, but also capture the history and tradition that makes this such a special event.”
In addition to exposure for their artwork, the contest winner will receive a t-shirt featuring their design signed by many of the top tennis stars participating in next year’s tournament.  They will also receive a cash prize and two tickets to the semi-finals and finals of the 2008 Family Circle Cup.
The design of the t-shirt should reflect the image and atmosphere of the Family Circle Cup and also highlight the tournament’s 35th anniversary.  The contest is open to artists age 13 and up.  Designs can be drawn, painted, or computer generated.  The overall design should measure 12” x 12” and the words “2008 Family Circle Cup” and “35th Anniversary” must be incorporated with the letters being at least 2” tall.  Entries can be submitted by mail, e-mail, or hand delivered to the Family Circle Cup offices on Daniel Island.  All entry forms and designs must be received before Midnight on December 14, 2007.  The winner will be notified on or about January 4, 2008.  A complete set of official rules, as well as the necessary entry form, can be found on the tournament’s official website, or by calling (843) 849-5315 to request printed copies.
