Design Guidelines and Parameters:

The purpose of this contest is to design artwork that will be made into merchandise by the RivetGear team and sold in our Shopify store, both online and in person, with proceeds going to Riveters Gameday Operations such as tifo, smoke, facilities rent, and other operating costs for our organization.

The artwork should convey excitement and/or positivity regarding the 2022 NWSL Championship victory.

The artwork can include either the Riveters primary or secondary marks.

The artwork must be appropriate for all ages.

The artwork must be an entrant's own original artwork, have not been copied from others, and must not violate the intellectual property rights of any other person or entity. For this reason, RivetGear cannot accept entries that include the use of the words or images of the Portland Thorns, NWSL, NWSL trophy, player or coach names or likeness or other images that belong to others.

Electronic entries can be submitted as JPEG or AI files. For quality production purposes, the winning entry must later be made available in scalable vector graphic format. Contestants are advised to avoid t-shirt designs that require more than 5 colors to aid in keeping production costs low.
