Reds and Majestic announce official "T-Shirt of the Fan" contest
Artists, clothing designers and fans who have wanted to design their own Cincinnati Reds apparel are finally getting the opportunity.
Majestic Athletic (the official uniform of the Reds), the Reds and MLB.com are teaming up to introduce MLB's first fan designed T-shirt contest.
Fans are invited to submit their ideas, whether a sketch, saying or work of art to: www.reds.com/FanShirt
Entries must be submitted by July 22 for consideration.
Later this month, Reds fans will vote on their favorite design which will become the "Official Reds T-Shirt of the Fan." Voting is scheduled to begin July 23.
The winning artist will see their work come alive, be honored on the field at a Reds game and win a Reds prize pack.
"We are excited to extend this opportunity to our fans in hopes of encouraging them to express their passion for the Reds through their own personal design," said Lauren Werner, Cincinnati Reds Senior Director of Business Development.
"At Majestic, we are making it stylish for fans to show the pride they have for the Reds," said Jim Pisani, President of Majestic Athletic. "Either at the ballpark or around town, there's no better way to show off that pride than in an official Reds T-shirt by the fan."
