The Waikiki Roughwater Swim Committee is searching for the perfect design for its Waikiki Roughwater Swim participant and volunteer t-shirt.

The 49th annual 2.4-mile event will be held at Waikiki Beach on Oahu on September 1st.

The design may be about 12 inches by 12 inches centered at shirt back and include the phase ’49th Waikiki Roughwater Swim’ as well as 2018 (the year but not the date),” explains race director Kaia Hedlund. “Wrap around art may also be considered. The WRS 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 or Waikiki or Ocean or Swimming motif

The 2017 winning design may be viewed at www.wrswim.com. A US$300 cash prize will be given to the artist who submits the winning entry that must be submitted no later than May 16th to Kaia Hedlund at kaiawrs@gmail.com.

The winning design will be determined in June 2018.

The design for the 49th Annual Waikiki Roughwater Swim t-shirt should incorporate the ‘spirit’ of open water swimming in Hawaii as well as the magic of Waikiki. A simple, classic design is preferred,” explained Hedlund. “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 [dolphin], Honu [green sea turtle] and the Humuhumunukuapua’a [triggerfish] which are seen along the course.”
