Hofstra Roller Hockey jersey design contest!

ECRHA  March 18th, 2009 at 8:32PM  April 27th, 2009 3:01PM
Hello Hofstra Roller Hockey fans! As many of you know, the past two years have been a little rough on the standings, so for next year, we're looking to totally change our image. We are creating a contest, open to anyone- students, faculty, staff, people off the street- to design our uniforms for next season. Here's how it works:

1. Find a jersey template. You can get one by clicking this link: http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2620/86/33/18901031/n18901031_34647416_2199261.jpg
2. Design away. You can use Photoshop, Paint, crayons, magic markers, tattoo ink- whatever you have laying around that will best get your idea across
 -Current Hofstra logos can be found at http://www.sportslogos.net/team.php?id=698
 -While we can't give out the Hofstra font (which you can see on uniforms here  and here), just put something close, and we'll adjust it
 -Please make sure to stay in the color spectrum- royal blue, athletic gold, and white. Our gloves and helmets are black, so it can be in there as well, if you want.
-These uniforms will be sublimated, so there's no restrictions whatsoever on design. Unlike cut-and-sew designs, sublimation is printed directly on the fabric, like a giant sheet of paper, allowing for limitless creativity with the design.
3. Save the file as a BMP or GIF
4. E-mail it as an attachment to [email protected] Make sure to include your name and contact information

That's it!

The prizes:
The winner of each the home and away jersey design will receive a customized jersey of their design. If you are a current player, that saves you some cash when we buy them next year. If you're just a fan, you get yourself a pretty valuable collectable for getting to play around with some hockey jersey designs.

Basic rules:
-ALL entries must be received by 5:00 PM EST on Sunday, April 5, 2009
-We are looking for a home AND an away jersey. You don't have to design both, but you're more than welcome to
-Home jerseys must be light in color- white/off white, yellow, gray, etc.
-Away jerseys must be dark in color- yellow, blue, black
-You can send in as many submissions as you'd like, but please don't flood our inbox
-We reserve the right to alter any designs as we see fit, but we promise to still give credit where credit is due. We won't tweak it a tiny bit and claim it's different to scam anyone
-Prizes may not be substituted for anything else. And there's no royalties or anything involved. Once you submit the concept, it's either you win and you get your jersey, or thanks, but maybe next time
-Decisions made by the team are final. I'm sure everyone thinks that they have the best design out there, but we can only pick one.

Thanks for your interest, and we hope to see your design!

The four finalists for each the home and away sections of the home and away brackets of the contest are in. The options in the away bracket are entries five, fourteen, fifteen, and sixteen.
