MBSEF and SELCO say entries must follow these criteria:

  • Be the original work of the submitting artist, and be memorable, visible, and eye-catching.
  • Incorporate the race name in some form, as well as the date and year.
  • Be digital or, if created by hand, be easily transferred to a digital format. (To be easily transferred, a hand-drawn design must have bold, solid lines and shapes, with positive and negative spaces clearly defined.)
  • Be well-suited for the front of a T-shirt (12” x 14”)
  • Use no more than six colors
  • Be complete and ready for print.
  • Creatively represent each leg or sport of the race.
  • Represent the unique location or environment of the race.

The winning artist must be willing to work with the MBSEF race director to render a final form for production purposes. Once submitted, all entries become the property of MBSEF.

A committee will pick eight finalists which will be open to public viewing. Everone is invited to vote online at selco.org/ppp from Wednesday, Jan. 17 to Sunday, Jan. 21.

The winning entry will be announced on Tuesday, Jan. 23 on SELCO’s Instagram account.
