Abilene Gives Contest

February 11, 2022

We're looking for a fresh t-shirt design for Abilene Gives 2022! 

Abilene Gives is a 24-hour day of giving to support local nonprofits. It's powered by the Community Foundation of Abilene and is happening May 3, 2022. To have some fun with a fresh t-shirt design, we're hosting a contest open to local college students studying and/or practicing graphic design.


Incorporate the Abilene Gives logo. It can be embellished and used in just about any capacity (within a container, with extra pizzazz, etc.), as long as the main logo is present and identifiable.

Incorporate the Community Foundation of Abilene logo or words along with "powered by" or a similar phrase. This does not have to be large nor coincide with the Abilene Gives design. It just needs to be present anywhere on the shirt.

You may use color or keep your design on the greyscale. If you use color, please incorporate the Abilene Gives branding colors and/or similar shades. If you envision your design being used with a particular shirt color, you may indicate so.

Submissions, Judging, & Awards

Submit your entry via email to by 5 p.m. March 1, 2022.

Submit two high-resolution versions of your design -- one showcasing only the actual artwork; the other showcasing its placement on a t-shirt. Vectors preferred.

Submissions will be showcased on social media to allow a few days of public voting and input. Then, a committee will review the designs and public feedback and choose a winner.

The 1st Place winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card, $100 towards the participating nonprofit of her/his choice, and a t-shirt with the final design. 2nd and 3rd Place winners will each receive a t-shirt and $50 towards the participating nonprofit of her/his choice.
