The 2024 Blueberry Festival T-Shirt Design Contest

We are looking forward to the 2024 Wild Blueberry Festival and welcome submissions for the T-shirt design contest. The winner will receive, in addition to bragging rights and four free T-Shirts, a $100 cash prize.

The winning design will be used for the Machias Wild Blueberry Festival 2024 T-shirts. These shirts have become collectors items for some folks!

The design will also be used for a United States Postal Cancellation stamp that is available during the festival, and for one month after the festival at the Machias, ME post office.

Designs should be simple and catchy to capture the fun of attending the festival.

  • Include the following words: Machias Wild Blueberry Festival
  • Incorporate the year 2024 and the words Machias, Maine. Those elements can be small and inconspicuous.
  • Keep in mind that this t-shirt needs to appeal to a very diverse population.
  • Designs can be a drawing, painting, or copyright-free digital artwork. Digital artwork should be at 300 dpi.
  • The design should fit into a 12″ x 12″ space.

The 2023 winning design was created by artist Elsie Burgess of Jonesboro, Maine.
