T-Shirt Salon Submissions

NSS T-Shirt Salon

DESCRIPTION: The T-shirt Salon is a judged exhibition of T-shirt designs related to caves or caving. All T-shirt designs must be representative of a caving-related or karst related organization (such as a caving club, grotto, section, or conservancy) or of a caving-related or karst related event (such as a caving club event, a grotto event, a section gathering, a meeting, a conference, or convention), or have a caving theme. T-shirts with designs on front and back may be entered as a single design or as two separate designs. The art work submitted must be entirely that of the artist, or, if a collaborative effort, permission must be received from all artists and/or organizations involved.

HOW TO SUBMIT ENTRIES: All entries must be mailed to the chair to arrive by April 30, 2024. Items that arrive after the deadline will not be accepted for the current year’s competition, but will be automatically entered in the following year’s competition. For each entry, complete and print the entry form or contact the chair to obtain entry forms via post. Entries will be considered to have been donated to the NSS unless otherwise specified when submitted. Two T-shirts must be provided for all two-sided designs, for display purposes.

ENTRY FEES: The entry fee is $3.00 for the entrant's first entry and $1.00 for each additional entry. PayPal or credit card via the form below is the preferred method of payment. However, a check or money order made out to the NSS and sent to the Chair is acceptable.

JUDGING: A panel of judges will judge all entries prior to the Convention. At the entrant's option, T-Shirts may be submitted for display but not judging.

All entrants retain copyright and all moral and intellectual rights to their work. Credit will be included with all objects displayed. The NSS requests the following optional rights. Indicate your agreement with any or all by marking the box(es) on the entry form:


Checkbox 3  The NSS may use images of these works in publications and on Web sites to announce the winners of this competition, for not more than one year.
Checkbox 2  The NSS may use images of winning works in publications and on Web sites for the purposes of promoting future competitions, for not more than four years.
