London Courier Emergency Fund 1st birthday t-shirt comp
3.03.09 by Buffalo Bill
The London Courier Emergency Fund was set up after that terrible day in March last year which saw 2 London bicycle messengers run over by lorries. Thankfully, both Chewy and Effri survived and recovered, but the cash that was donated by, amongst others, readers of this web-zine/bog/thing, was pooled first to help the two guys pay the rent until they could earn again, and subsequently to help any London bicycle courier unable to work because of injuries sustained whilst working.
The fund was set up to raise and distribute those monies. It will be a year old in April, and to celebrate (and raise some more money!), it has been decided to commission the community to help us come up with an original t-shirt design to mark the date and put a lasting stamp on the achievements of our first year. The winning design will be used to print up a limited-edition run of shirts.
To give you a flavour, a favourite slogan of ours so far has been ‘LCEF – sorting out couriers since 2008′ but really you’ve got complete license to put forward anything you like. All we ask is that it has ‘LCEF’ somewhere in the design and obviously that it tips a nod to the world of cycling and courierdom. Anyone can enter a design and we can accept entries in any format you choose be it a digital file, drawn with crayons on a napkin or whatever you’re used to. Remember too that we already have an LCEF logo so we’re not asking for a new design on that front, we love the one we’ve got.
Entries to be in with us by the end of March with public feedback and judging to follow.
Entries can be e-mailed over using the form on the right or you can hunt us down and give us your design in person. Our numbers are also available here ^. Goes without saying that the winner gets kudos a free t-shirt ;-)
