For the Birds T-Shirt Design Contest

Michigan Audubon

Michigan Audubon connects birds and people for the benefit of both through conservation, education, and research efforts in the state of Michigan.

Calling all artists and designers! 

Michigan Audubon is looking for bird-centric, ecologically-themed shirt designs that inspire a love of birds and the spirit of conservation. 

Imaginative and abstract designs are welcome, but accuracy of specific bird species is preferred if/when species are illustrated. Original artwork only.

Use your wild talents to help us create something great to spread the bird-loving word!

Winners will be announced in late September on Michigan Audubon's Facebook page. Artwork will be featured prominently on the Michigan Audubon website and in our official member magazine, the Jack Pine Warbler. The winner will receive a complimentary membership to Michigan Audubon for one year for his/herself (or a gift membership for a friend), as well as two free t-shirts of the winning design.

Your art and these shirts will directly support conservation programs that benefit native birds in Michigan.

Submit your design to on or before September 10, 2016.
