T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST

UNAVSA-16 Media committee is excited to announce that our T-shirt design contest is now open!

Your design should incorporate this year’s conference theme, “Beyond the Horizon: Y[ours] to Discover”. This theme reflects our organization’s mission of bridging the gap between our Canadian and American constituents while exploring the various aspects of Vietnamese culture across the North American continent. UNAVSA believes “Your” journey of self development begins when you take the first initiative, to leap out of your comfort zone, and have meaningful intent to reflect on personal experiences and explore how it contributes to your individual and cultural identity. By achieving these ideals, the greater community can harness the immense potential to create positive change in the world. “Our” journey begins when we come together as one, a collective.

Have fun and let your creativity go free!

Conference staff, UNAVSA alumni, attendees and all are encourage to participate. The design must be submitted in one of the following formats: PSD (Photoshop), AI (Adobe Illustrator), jpeg, png, or pdf. The dimension of the design must be no more than 9″ wide by 12″ high as it will be printed on the front of the conference t-shirt. Multiple submissions are accepted and encouraged. The deadline to submit t-shirt design(s) is on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 11:59PM PDT. Late submissions will NOT be accepted.

The designs will be reviewed by our conference staff. The winning design will be determined by the creativity of the design and how well it incorporates the conference theme and the host city (Vancouver). The winning designer and design will be announced on Friday, May 31, 2019.

The winning designer will receive a free registration ticket to UNAVSA-16 conference, recognition in our conference program booklet and on all of UNAVSA social media handles (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Conference Blog and Website).
