Newtown Locals T-Shirt Design Competition

  • Black Star Pastry 277 Australia Street Newtown, NSW, 2042 Australia (map)

To honour the strong focus of the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre to support local residents at risk of homelessness, this year we’ve themed the t-shirt comp design around “The Great Australian Dream” of owning your own home … something for many of us living in Newtown and the inner west is just that, a dream.

Submission details:

  • Artwork must reference The Great Australian Dream with a local tangent.

  • T-shirt Design must say Newtown Locals - get creative with your type.

  • Your work doesn’t need to be an illustration, it just needs to be original.

  • It must be black and white - set up the file for a white background.

  • Outline all fonts.

  • Files must be set up at A3 portrait (210x297mm) at 300dpi. Vector files are preferred.

  • Please submit a press ready PDF, a 72dpi jpeg in RGB and your illustrator file if you created it this way. (If you don’t know how to do this email us and we can give you a hand).

  • Deadline is Midnight, Friday September 22nd 2017.

  • Winners announced at the official Launch Party Thursday 5th October at Young Henrys, where the first run of t-shirts will be for sale.
