icon do that

More Rotto artistic angles.

The Rottnest Channel Swim wants a design for next year’s event and it’s worth $500.

“Regarded as a collector’s item by swimmers and support crew the iconic long sleeve shirt has been produced since 1994,” the Swim’s site gushes.

(Hmm. Do these shirts really have the characteristics of an icon? It was discussed at Curtin Uni yesterday. Rotto Bloggo accepts the word no longer applies to just Russina religious images – but the Swim shirt?)

Anyway, the winning design will be on 4000 shirts and will win the designer serious Rottnest cred.

The winner also gets the cash, or two VIP passes on Swim day, or a choice of team, duo or solo entry, and a salutation in the yearbook.

You can only use four colours and it must be printable in block colour.

You can't have a quokka in your design.

The Swim people get to own the copyright, and they will use all or part of it.
Get a move on: entries close at the end of the month.


  1. Dude, I feel sorry for you cause you consistently update this site and its obvious that no one reads it. You have no comments, man. I dunno what your motivation is, but you have a lot. SO I just want to recognise that. Even if nobody else will.

    Keep on truckin'.

    I read it! Not everyone feels the need to pass comment on everything.
