TSHIRT COMP [1920 X 1080].jpg

About the theme

This year we’re celebrating 40 years of Newtown Festival, so it seemed only fitting to make it our t-shirt comp theme. We’re asking you guys to get creative on this one and embrace this special day established by The Newtown Neighbourhood Centre 4 decades ago - No copyright material (Disney characters or commercial references) & NO CAKES allowed!

  • Artwork must reference 40 Years of Newtown Festival.

  • T-shirt Design must say Newtown Locals - get creative with your type.

  • Your work doesn’t need to be an illustration, it just needs to be original.

  • It must be black and white - set up the file for a white background.

  • Outline all fonts.

  • Files must be set up at A3 portrait (210x297mm) at 300dpi. Vector files are preferred.

  • Please submit a press ready PDF, a 72dpi jpeg in RGB and your illustrator file if you created it this way. (If you don’t know how to do this email us and we can give you a hand).

  • Deadline is Midnight, Thursday October 18th 2018.

  • Winners announced at the official Launch Party Thursday 25th October at Young Henrys, where the first run of t-shirts will be for sale.

  • Submit all entries to hello@newtownlocals.com
