At SaveAFox, we often receive emails from incredible artists and designers who want to offer up their skills and talents in order to help us create merchandise to fund the rescue. We are so appreciative of our follower base, and since reaching 300,000 this week, our team has decided to open up a tee shirt design contest to our Instagram followers! If you're an artist who has reached out to us to offer your work, we would love for you to enter! And if you don't consider yourself much of an artist, but still enjoy the merchandise in our FoxShop, then we hope you will join in and vote when it is time!
For our next tee, we are looking for creative, clean, appealing designs that feature a fox/foxes, as well as the words "SaveAFox" or "SaveAFox Rescue" in the design. Designs must be appropriate for all ages, and not include text or script other than the aforementioned. The rest of the creativity is up to you!
All entries received will be screened by the SaveAFox Team, and up to nine (9) entries will be selected to be featured in a multi-slide post on SaveAFox Rescue's Instagram account, where a winner will be selected by votes from our followers! This contest is open to participants of all ages, anywhere in the world.
The winner of the design contest will receive $100.00 (USD), two tees featuring their winning design, and their name, website, social media handles etc. will be credited according to their preferences in both our FoxShop and YouTube Channel Merch Shelf!
