General Rules of the Contest

Deadline for all designs is January 16, 2019.

Pin designers MUST be active/registered/dues paying WTSA members

Artwork must be submitted electronically to statepins@washingtontsa.org. Please use JPEG or EPS formatting only. 

The pin design should reflect all of Washington State and TSA.

ONLY ONE DESIGN MAY BE SUBMITTED PER PERSON.  Please do not submit different variations of the same design or multiple designs.

The designs will be selected in February. The winning designers will be invited to the State Conference to receive their cash prize and to be recognized by the state association. The pin design will be manufactured and be available at the State Conference and traded at the National Conference.

PIN GUIDELINES:

  1. A maximum of 5 colors is suggested.

  2. The pin size will not exceed 1.25 inches after it is made. Please take into consideration the reduction in size and understand that very small detail in your design would not be seen.

  3. Pin design submissions must be sent with dimensions of 5'' x 5''.

  4. Pins must have the TSA or WTSA logos on the pin and the year (2019).

  5. Pins cannot pertain to any copyrighted material.

  6. Washington State pins are collector pieces and have tremendous trading value at the TSA National Conference.

  7. Many state associations go to great lengths to design a pin reflecting their state and its individuality. In designing this year’s pin, remember the uniqueness of our state and our quality of life.

  8. Pins designs must be created on a computer. Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, or similar programs are preferred.
