Many plants native to our area, including the beebalm (Monarda didyma, above) have appeared on the Conference t-shirt. Participants enjoy collecting the t-shirts from year to year.
Sponsored by the WCU Biology Club
You could win $300!
1) T-shirt designs should be submitted in final form by April 30, 2013.
2) Any plants, animals, and/or landscapes included in the design should be native to the Southern Appalachian Mountains.
3) Designs which include the words, “Cullowhee Native Plant Conference,” “30th Anniversary” and the year (2013) will be given preference. For more information about the Conference please visit www.wcu.edu/5033.asp.
4) T-shirt designs can contain as many colors and color shades as the artist chooses. However, artists should refrain from using large areas of solid color in their design as this greatly affects the wholesale pricing of the shirts. Also, artists should bear in mind that designs may be printed on dark-colored shirts. Dark objects in a design will be lost on dark shirts unless they have an outline of a lighter color. Designs that will print nicely on dark-colored shirts will be given preference.
5) The university, not the artist, will determine the final t-shirt color(s) but may consult the artist for input.
6) The winner must agree to license the work for use by Western Carolina University for conference related promotion and must also agree to accommodate minor changes as may be necessary to facilitate the print process.
7) The winner of the design contest will receive $300 to be paid at the end of June, 2013.
8) Send designs to: Sonja Himes, Dept. of Biology, WCU, 132 Natural Sciences Building, Cullowhee, NC 28723. Digital (pdf, jpeg) or hard copies of designs are acceptable. For more info, call 828-227-3653 or email email@example.com.
