Vi-Tee Contest Finalists
Earlier this year, the VRF announced a unique giveaway in which we asked community to design the T-shirt that will be handed out to vitiligo support groups before the World Vitiligo Day. We have received twelve T-shirt designs and have narrowed it down to the final two. Let’s take a look at the finalists. Last year's dancing silhouette logo returned to compete against newcomer:
The winning design will be chosen by the Board on March 12, 2014, based on several criteria: the real creativity and 'wow' factor, while holding true to simple aesthetic that involves a great deal of thought and work. Winner will receive ten customized T-shirts, not to mention the satisfaction of seeing 1500 people wearing her or his artwork. Thanks for all your awesome submissions and discussion!
UPDATE March 18, 2014: The Board votes for the winner
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
