TSHIRTdesign20152016extended deadlineKCSB-FM 91.9 invites artists everywhere to participate in our annual t-shirt design contest for the 2015-2016 school year!

We are accepting design submissions now through Tuesday, August 4th, Monday, June 1st, 2015. Anyone can participate, and the winner will be awarded a cash prize of $250.

The two winning designs from the 2014-2015 school year are included in this post for your inspiration. Feel free to devise your own theme or slogan — or repurpose previous tag lines, which can be found HERE or elsewhere on this website.

Think about concepts that encompass 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 reference (CLICK HERE).

A jury of KCSB’s student leaders will select no more than six entries for a vote by KCSB programmers at our summer 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.
  • Email your submissions to general.manager@kcsb.org, or bring your artwork to KCSB’s
    main office beneath Storke Tower (Room #1055) by 5pm on Tuesday, August 4th.

(We reserve the right to utilize runner-up submissions in other KCSB-FM promotions.)
