KCSB T-Shirt Design Contest Flier – CLICK TO ENLARGE

It’s time again for friends of KCSB-FM to create our 2014-15 t-shirt!

We are accepting design submissions now through our NEW EXTENDED deadline of Monday October 6th Friday, October 3rd. ANYONE can participate, and the winner will be awarded a cash prize of $250.

A jury of KCSB’s student leaders will select no more than six entries for a vote by KCSB programmers at our fall staff meeting, which will determine the winning design.

The art must be original and sized between 8 1.2″ x 11″ and 11″ x 17″. (Public domain graphics are allowed.)

Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, TIFF, or EPS files are preferred (300 dpi). Submissions must include “KCSB-FM 91.9” and “www.kcsb.org.” (“Santa Barbara” is preferred, but not required.) There is a three-color limit. (We reserve the right to utilize runner-up submissions in other KCSB-FM promotions.)


Here are a few thematic suggestions from KCSB programmers:

  • KCSB-FM 91.9: Radio That Listens 
  • KCSB-FM 91.9: It’s Not Just in Your Head
  • KCSB-FM 91.9: The Sounds of Santa Barbara
  • KCSB-FM 91.9: You Deserve to Be Heard
  • KCSB-FM 91.9: “It’s Alive!” – Live Community Radio 24/7/365

You can adapt these or repurpose previous tag lines, which can be found on our website. Last year’s winner, inspired by the “Radio With a Pulse” slogan, is pictured here.

Or you can create your own, with an eye toward encompassing KCSB as a whole (not just specific genres): our programming, activities, and an overarching sense of (noncommercial, independent) COMMUNITY-oriented radio.

We’ve also uploaded a small gallery of some past T-shirt design submissions for further inspiration (CLICK HERE).

Email your submissions to general.manager@kcsb.org, or bring your artwork to KCSB’s main office beneath Storke Tower (Room #1055) by our 5pm deadline on Monday, October 6th Friday, October 3rd. Please contact KCSB at (805) 893-3921 or email info@kcsb.org with any questions.
