Annual SEASSI T-Shirt Design Contest

Every year, SEASSI runs a T-Shirt competition, showcasing the talent of our students and producing a creative way to represent SEASSI!

After the winning design has been chosen, SEASSI students, staff, and other interested folks may purchase the T-shirts if they would like one.

Submission requirements:

  • Submissions can be hand drawn or created using various design programs such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. If your design is made on a computer, your submission must be in one of the following formats; pdf, psd, or tiff.
  • Images must be high-resolution, at least 600 dpi of the final size of the design. (in other words, when you zoom in, it should not look pixelated). In past years, SEASSI T-shirt designs have ranged in size from 8-11″ wide and 8-12″ long.
  • Design may be either in black/white or up to three other colors, which may be either lighter or darker. Keep in mind that the more colors, the higher the cost, so one to two-color designs are preferred.
  • Designs should represent “SEASSI 2023 UW-Madison”
  • Design can use some words from any of the languages offered at SEASSI: Burmese, Filipino, Hmong, Indonesian, Khmer, Lao, Thai, and Vietnamese. If you would like to incorporate different scripts/texts from one of the SEASSI languages but do not have the font readily available, please contact us at
  • Designs can be placed on up to three places: front and/or back and/or top sleeve. Keep in mind that the more locations, the higher the cost, so one to two locations designs will be easier on our wallets!
  • Designs should be submitted no later than 2:00pm Central Time on Friday, July 7th, via email to
  • Participants MAY enter more than one design


  • Voting will take place between July 7th and July 11th via a Google Form (sent out by email). The winner of the contest will be announced around July 12th. We’ll take orders for t-shirts tentatively from July 12th-18th; schedule subject to change so keep an eye on your email!
