The Valley Rock Gym (VRG) is a climbing gym and community space with a focus on climbing, community, education and wellness. Our goal is to create a space where people of all ages, identities and abilities can come to socialize, learn, move and grow - as climbers and as individuals.
Every year we hold a design competition that focuses on community and climbing inspired designs by way of a public contest. The top winner’s design will be placed on various merchandise including T-shirts but maybe also sweatshirts, stickers and/or hats.
There is no entry fee to submit a design. If you are under the age of 14, you may create a design but it must be submitted on your behalf by a parent or guardian.
SUBMISSION DETAILS and DATES
Designs can be submitted in any of the following file formats:
Colors: Max 3 colors (not including shirt color)
Sizing: Max width: 9 inches. Max Height: 12 inches
The design contest will be open from Friday February 2nd - Friday March 1st. No late design submissions will be accepted. Public voting on the designs will occur March 2nd - March 7th with the winning design announced Friday March 8th.
Submit your designs to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions will be reviewed by the VRG team to ensure that contest guidelines have been met. All designs will then be presented to the public to vote for the winner!
The top winner will have their design printed on t-shirts and possibly other merchandise. The top winner will receive a $300 gift card to Valley Rock Gym OR 5 months of a recurring monthly membership (winners choice) as well as a t-shirt and any other merchandise with their winning design.
Other designs may be selected for stickers. In this case, a member of the VRG team will reach out to the artist for permission. If accepted the artist will receive a $50 dollar gift card to the gym as well as a pack of 10 of their stickers to give to family and friends!
The shirts will be screen printed. In the simplest terms, this means each color (includes shades and overlays) will be on it’s own screen so your design should include no more than three colors.
