The 46th Waikiki Roughwater Swim will be held on September 5th. “As in the past, we are looking for an awesome t-shirt design for the event,” says president Kaia Hedlund.

There is a $300 award for the chosen design. The Waikiki Roughwater Swim Committee is searching for the perfect design for the Waikiki Roughwater Swim participant and volunteer t-shirt.”

Design must be about 12 inches by 12 inches centered at shirt back and include the phase “46th Waikiki Roughwater Swim” as well as 2015 (the year but not the date). The Waikiki Roughwater Swim logo shown above may be used on the front pocket area; however, if the design works a pocket version of the art will be used. No more than five colors should be utilized in the design. Application will be used on both t-shirts and tank shirts as well as long sleeved dri fits for water safety.

Design should include a Hawai’ian/Waikiki/Ocean/Swimming motif and incorporate the spirit of open water swimming in Hawaii as well as the magic of Waikiki. A simple, classic design is preferred. Elements may include Diamond Head, the War Memorial Natatorium at the start, the Rainbow Tower at Duke Kahanamoku Beach at the finish, the clean clear water and the abundant sea creatures such as naia, honu and the humuhumunukuapuaa which are seen along the course.

Artists can submit digital art work no later than May 1st to: Kaia Hedlund at chairs@gmail.com. The winning design will be decided in June 2015.
