Calling all creative spirits: Fernie Pride is hosting a T-shirt design contest ahead of the Elk Valley Pride Festival in September this year.
“It’s the inaugural T-shirt design contest,” said Fernie Pride coordinator, Courtney Baker.
The winning design will appear on T-shirts and other merch as part of the 2022 pride festival.
“It’ll be nice to have a new face on the festival with some new merch,” said Baker.
The contest will be open to all ages, and to folks from all over. “We’d love people from the valley to submit work.”
There’s no set theme, and designers are free to come up with what they like. The creator of the winning design will receive $150 and a whole lot of Fernie Pride swag – not to mention their design will be everywhere, and they will get tremendous bragging rights.
While the 2022 Elk Valley Pride Festival is still a ways away, Baker said they were looking forward to the 6th-ever festival.
While they had fingers crossed it could be more in-person this year, some of the features introduced over the last two years were here to stay.
“Even if things are 100 percent open, we’ll likely stick to a hybrid format with some items appearing online (as well as in person) because the audience can be so much bigger,” said Baker.
All the regular and popular events will be back – like rainbow reads, bike decorating, the bike parade, and more.
The 2022 Elk Valley Pride Festival will be held in September this year.
