The Willamette Humane Society (WHS) launched a T-shirt design contest for the group’s annual WillaMutt Strut, which will be virtual on June 6. 

Between now and May 5, artists can create a design and submit it to the WHS team at [email protected] with the subject line “WillaMutt Strut T-shirt Contest Entry.” The winner will be announced May 10.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the WillaMutt Strut, Willamette Humane Society’s annual fun run and dog party. This event is also WHS’s second-largest fundraising event of the year. The special black T-shirt will be provided to participants, and the winning design will be printed in silver on the front of the garment.

Artists should submit a high-res (300 dpi) PDF, JPEG, or Adobe Illustrator file. Hand-drawn entries will not be accepted. No compensation (aside from bragging rights and five T shirts) will be provided.

In addition to a special T-shirt, WillaMutt Strut plans include My Dog will Eat That and My Cat will Eat That contests. Ticketed participants can also submit a snap of their mixed-breed pup for a chance to win the 2022 WillaMutt crown. And ticketed participants will have the opportunity to attend a virtual party also slated on June 6.

Tickets for the WillaMutt Strut are on sale at humanehero.whs4pets.org.
