A call to local artists for Dock Street West Philly T-Shirt Design contest

Posted on 06 March 2012

Dock Street’s West Philly T-Shirt contest is still on and West Philly-based artists are encouraged to participate. You can submit your design through Saturday, March 17. The winner will be announced on March 28.

Apart from seeing your friends and neighbors wearing a tee with your work of art, you can win free beer for a week – 14 drink coupons or two beers per day!

The design can be based around the brewpub, a specific beer or Dock Street beers in general.

Here are the rules:

1. Any West Philadelphia-based artist/illustrator/designer can enter.
2. All entries must be black and white.
3. Art must be submitted electronically (.pdf, .ai, .jpg, .png, .tiff, .gif)
4. There are no entry fees.
5. Submissions will be judged on creativity, style, printability and representation of Dock Street.
6. Dock Street Staff will vote on top 3 and announce on March 20. Once they’ve selected the top 3, they’ll open the voting on their website, Facebook and Twitter and at the brewpub on March 28.
7. The winner gets their artwork printed on a run of Dock Street tees and receives 4 t-shirts for their trophy case, free beer for a week (14 drink vouchers) and a bottle of one of Dock Street’s limited release beers. And of course, bragging rights!

    how about in big letters “exploiting west philly workers since 2006” and pictures of all the disgruntled ex-employees

    Nothing like exploiting artists for monetary gain with very little reward. Leave it to Dock Street to cheap out again.
