Women in Lighting is calling on anyone feeling creative and positive in the WIL community. WIL wants to join in this global phenomena of inspiration and solidarity in 2020 by sharing positive messages through launching a T-shirt design competition.
“The T-shirt was originally designed to be a basic undergarment. But over the years, the world’s most ubiquitous fashion item has become a powerful political weapon. T-shirts are a great barometer of social change. They can shock, outrage, unite and challenge the status quo. They can also help to disseminate messages around the world.” Explains Sharon Stammers.
“With a T-shirt as your canvas, WIL invites you to express your creativity to create a special WIL T-shirt that share the values of our community. Using the themes of equality, empowerment, inspiration and light, we invite you to submit a design for this competition.”
The competition opens 17th August and the WIL website will be open for submissions. All the Terms and Conditions are on the website along with a form to submit your design. Submissions will close on 30th September. A panel of judges will pick 10 designs that will be made into T-shirts and housed on the WIL T-shirt shop. Any profits from the sale of these T-shirts will go to the US based charity Light Reach. Check for information on the judges on social media and for news about the competition as it proceeds.
