THE 2019 DESIGN A TSHIRT COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED.
Thank you to all of you who entered.
To find out who won our 2019 competition click here.
The competition is open to children and young adults with two entry levels: 4 – 11 years, and 12 – 18 years.
What’s the deal?
We want you to design a bright and eye-catching design for a Mammal Society t-shirt that features one or more UK mammals. Ideally the mammals would be those from our Red List (see poster). For a full list of UK mammals click here.
The two winners will see their designs appear on our Teemill t-shirts and will receive their design on a their very own t-shirt too!
The theme for your t-shirt design is #MammalsMatter.
Why this theme? The Mammal Society has identified that some of Britain’s mammals are at risk of becoming extinct. We want you to help us make people aware of this and let them know how they can help us to conserve them. From the smallest bat to the prowling wildcat, all of Britain’s #MammalsMatter.
To see a poster about the mammals we are particularly concerned about click here.
The two winning designers will receive their design on their very own Teemill t-shirt and get to see their design featured on our Teemill store for other people to buy and proudly sport!

Tips and Guidelines
Make it BRIGHT – paint or coloured pens are best to really make your design POP!
Make it BOLD – bold designs look great on tees.
Keep it SIMPLE – very complicated designs don’t always translate well onto a t-shirt.
Stick to the THEME – only UK mammals & you might want to include the theme title (no need to add our logo as we can do this bit).
