Tiger Day 5K – T-Shirt Contest

Everyone knows that the best thing about participating in a 5K – is the T-shirt!  So, before we can start planning our teams and lacing up our running shoes, we need an awesome T-shirt design!

Send us your T-shirt designs, and if your design is chosen, your artwork will be printed on our 2nd Annual Tiger Day 5K T-shirts!

Staff will select the top three finalists, and then we will put the designs out for a vote!  Good Luck!


The winner of the Tiger Day 5k T-shirt design contest will receive the following:

  • Private Tour or Virtual Private Tour for up to 20 people.
  • A symbolic sponsorship (not adoption) of a tiger of your choice.
  • One Tiger Day T-shirt featuring your winning design!

How To Submit Your Design

  • T-shirt designs must be submitted by June 1, 2021
  • Design entries should be sent via email to Events@CarolinaTigerRescue.org in one of the following formats: jpeg, PSD, or PDF.
