Brewers Looking for Aspiring Designers for Fan Shirt Friday
The Milwaukee Brewers are calling all aspiring fashion designers with the announcement of the “Fan-Shirt Friday Design Contest.”
On select Fridays throughout the season, fans who arrive at Miller Park receive a custom Brewers-themed T-shirt. This year, one of the shirts will come from a fan design. This marks the first time in the four-year history of Brewers “Free-Shirt Fridays” that fans will have an opportunity to submit their best ideas, with the winning Brewers-themed design distributed to the first 20,000 fans on Friday, June 16 when the Crew takes on the San Diego Padres.
Interested fans can go to brewers.com/fanshirtfriday to download the T-shirt template and carefully review the instructions. Participants must submit their design online by Friday, December 16. Once all of the submissions are reviewed, a panel from the Brewers will narrow the pool down to three finalists. Finalists will then be announced on Monday, January 9, 2017. At that point, Brewers fans will be able to cast their vote for their favorite design by going to brewers.com/fanshirtfriday. Once the fan vote period closes on Friday, January 20, the results will be tabulated, and the winner will be announced at Brewers On Deck on Sunday, January 29.
The winning artist will not only have the honor of having their artwork made into a promotional item for the first 20,000 fans, but will also receive an assortment of additional prizes. Prizes include 50 T-shirts featuring his or her winning design as well as a signed and framed photo of a Brewers player wearing the shirt. In addition, they will receive four Field Infield Box tickets to a 2017 Brewers home game and the opportunity to watch batting practice on the field prior to the contest.
