AKT Design Contest

Seeking Creative Designers!



Our previous WKC merchandise campaign was a hit with supporters! The designs were well liked by our supporters and till today, are still lovingly worn by many. :) During the WKC in Tokyo, our supporters in their eye-catching red tees were very easily sighted among the stands at the Nippon Budokan! :)

Now we are inviting you to submit designs for a fresh batch of fund-raising merchandise in support of our AKT Team members preparing for the 11th ASEAN Kendo Tournament in Bangkok come July 2016. The squad has already commenced training for the event.

We invite all submissions (unique designs/logos) for the following merchandise:
1. Tsuba
2. Tenugui
3. Sports towel
4. Sports water bottle

Contest Rules & Submission Guidelines

Design Considerations:
a) Design should convey a sense of youth and vigour
b) Representative of Singapore (without using the actual flag)
c) words "11th AKT 2016 Team Singapore"
d) a special logo can be designed as well (eg. WKC men-lion logo)

Perk:
Winning designers will receive the item that they designed as a prize!
