T shirt Design Contest web


We’re searching for the Houston-area’s best young artists, ages 18 and under to help promote pet adoption!

Create a fantastic, unique design and it could be put on a t-shirt that will help fundraise for the care and medical treatment of the many homeless animals at the CAP Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center.


Contest Design Guidelines

  • Artists can use crayons, colored pencils, pens, markers, paint, or create digital artwork on a computer or tablet.
  • All submitted artwork MUST be original!
  • The design should promote pet adoption and show off your love, appreciation, or sense of humor for your favorite domesticated pet such as a dog, cat, rabbit, or guinea pig.
  • Maximum of 2 colors in the design. Black or White are colors too. Keep in mind that the t-shirt the design is printed on will have a color too that could be incorporated into the design. So for instance you might have an animal profile with the color of the t-shirt showing through the eyes.
