Design & Shine: The ISHI T-Shirt Contest Awaits Your Creativity!

As the 35th International Symposium on Human Identification (ISHI 35) approaches, we’re turning the spotlight onto you, the creative minds of the forensic community. This is your chance not just to attend ISHI, but to showcase your design on the official conference t-shirt.

Unleash Your Artistry:

Craft a design that encapsulates the spirit of ISHI. Whether you draw inspiration from the meticulous art of DNA analysis or the broader strokes of the ISHI conference throughout the years or the hills of San Antonio, your design should resonate with professionals across the globe.


Here’s How to Enter:

  • Submit your design below following these specs:
    • Designs must be digitally created. No hand-drawn designs will be accepted. Design is for the front of the shirt only and must be created by using a maximum of three Pantone or CMYK colors.
    • Designs must be created in either Adobe (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop), Canva, or CorelDRAW
    • Artwork must be received as BOTH a vector (.ai, .eps., .pdf) AND a .jpg
    • Design resolution must be a minimum of 300dpi and fit into an 8″ square space


Remember, all eyes will be on the clock— June 16th is the cut-off date!


From Sketch to Stage:

A panel of judges from Promega Corporation and our ISHI Advisory Committee will select the top four designs, which will then be put to a community vote. If your design captures the hearts and minds of your peers, you’ll not only win free registration to this year’s conference but also the honor of having your artwork featured on the official ISHI 35 t-shirt.


Mark These Dates:

  • June 16: Submission deadline.
  • June 24: Top four finalists announced.
  • July 5: Voting closes.
  • Week of July 8: Winner revealed.
