Women in Lighting

The Brief

  1. The competition is open to all WIL and WIL supporters.
  2. The theme is equality, empowerment, inspiration and light.
  3. Please make your design inspiring, creative and bold.
  4. Your design can be a drawing/text/photo…
  5. Designs are for front of the T-shirt only.
  6. Your design can either go onto a white or a dark background - please select when you upload.
  7. Please submit your design via the WIL website.
  8. Only upload the design that would go onto the T-shirt.
  9. Please format your artwork as per the instructions below:

    High Res
    Make sure your images are high resolution (between 200dpi and 300dpi). For best results use PNG24 images around 2500 pixels by 3500 pixels (saved in sRGB colour space) up to a maximum of 4000 pixels by 4000 pixels.

    Transparent Background
    Save your files as PNG24 with transparent backgrounds, so they will print nicely.

    Colours may vary a little from on screen. Neon colours won’t be as vibrant. Teemill uses digital printing, hence Pantone colours cannot be 100% matched.

    If you upload a design, you must have obtained all relevant rights or permissions as per the T&Cs. Ideally it should be an original drawing, statement or photograph.

    Make sure your lines are at least 2mm wide. Microscopic text or hair-width lines may not resolve or may appear broken.

    • transparent png
    • sRGB colour
    • 2500 to 4000 px in length/width
    • no superfine lines
