Get in on the creative end of the Phoenix PRIDE Shirt tradition. You don’t have to be a graphics alumni-phoenix-pride-t-shirt-contest-July2017or art major. Have an idea? We want to hear about it. Each year, we create a collectible, limited edition T-shirt that reflects UWGB spirit. Proceeds SUPPORT student scholarships. The design is selected by electronic vote in October and the winning designer receives a $100 gift card to a location of his or her choice, two tickets to Rock the Resch, and of course…being known as the awesome 5th Edition Phoenix PRIDE Shirt Designer!

-One color, front- or back-only design
-Include a reference to UWGB/UW-Green Bay
-Design should be relatable to UWGB alumni
-Submit artwork in a pdf file format by September 15 to alumni@uwgb.edu

An official logo is not required in the design, but can be requested by contacting Sue Bodilly, bodillys@uwgb.edu.

Terms and Conditions:

  • Contest is open to UWGB alumni, students and employees
  • By submitting a design, the designer is allowing UW-Green Bay full use of the graphic for the purpose of the 5th Edition Phoenix PRIDE Shirt campaign. The t-shirt may be promoted in any way UW-Green Bay chooses (i.e. UWGB websites, mailings, social media, etc.).

Voting:

  • All T-shirt designs will be published on the alumni website and alumni social media sites for voting purposes.
  • Voting will be open from October 1 – October 15.
  • Voting will take place online via a link that will be announced in late September and at alumni events taking place during the voting period.
