You have one more day to enter the West Seattle Art Walk‘s West Seattle Bridge T-shirt design contest (first mentioned here two weeks ago).

We would like all artists to consider the following as they create their designs:
*Capture the essence of the situation
*Raise awareness about the importance of the bridge closure to our community

We recognize that art is a very personal expression and you may have mixed emotions about the Bridge closure. While we do not want to inhibit creativity, we do aim to find a balance among sentiments conveyed in the designs that will appeal to our community, with a suggestion of:
Designs can be all illustration, all text, or a mix of both. One submission per artist.
Please note: While we welcome all submissions, artwork needs to be family-friendly to qualify for voting and selection.
More details here; the form for submitting your design is here. The community will get to vote on the qualifying designs to choose the winners! Then the T-shirts will be sold to raise money both for the merchants who sell them and for the nonprofit West Seattle Junction Association.
