2018 Waikiki Roughwater Swim Tee Shirt Design Contest

The Waikiki Roughwater Swim Committee is searching for the perfect design for the 2018, 49th Annual Waikiki Roughwater Swim participant and volunteer t-shirt.

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).

No more than five colors should be utilized in the design. Application will be used on t-shirts, tank shirts, long sleeved dri fits for water safety and gear from Hardcore Sport.
