The Plant Cell 30th Anniversary T-Shirt Competition!




The contest is open to all, including The Plant Cell editors and ASPB staff. Participation in the contest constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of the following rules. There is no limit to the number of entries per person during the contest period.


  • Designs should be no larger than 12" x 12"
  • Submissions should be in VECTOR format (no bitmap or raster images/no photos). Adobe Illustrator or editable EPS files are preferred, with all fonts converted to outline. However, if you can’t provide a true VECTOR file, submit the art as a GIF, TIF, JPG, or PNG, and ASPB will recreate as vector art.
  • NO PowerPoint, Word, or Microsoft Publisher files.
  • Designs may be altered to ensure highquality printing.
  • Design submissions must include The Plant Cell logo (download logo here) and "30th Anniversary."
  • ASPB reserves the right to use all designs for future marketing purposes.


The winning design will be selected by a committee of The Plant Cell editors (herein “selection committee”). The choice will be based on design alone (designs will not be associated with entrant names until after a choice is made), and members of the selection committee agree not to enter the competition.
