This competition is open to anybody over 16 years of age. The open competition, will take place from now until MIDNIGHT on FRIDAY 16TH MAY 2014, where the Warriors Festival Committee will accept entries to the competition via email.

If there are a large number of entries, the committee will whittle down to the final designs and these will be posted on this Festival Facebook Page where members of the public can like their favourite design. However, the final selection will ultimately be made by a panel of Judges, who will take the public vote into consideration as one of the criteria for selecting the winning design, otherwise the decision will be made solely by the Judges.

The winner will have their design printed on the back of all the 30th Annual Warriors Run Runners Shirts and on all Walkers T-Shirts as well (approx 1000 units). They will also receive a complimentary entry to the 2014 Race, a specially designed one off trophy from the Festival Committee and have their name and design published on the Festival Website and all social media pages.
