Announcement: Virtual Skewered! Design Contest

Although pestilence travels across our lands, join the Shire of Roxbury Mill in a design contest to celebrate the best of their annual summer Skewered! event. Artists can compete by submitting designs that they feel capture the Shire’s annual event, to be used on t-shirts and tote bags for genuine Skewered! merchandise. The designs will be displayed on the Shire website and voted on by the Atlantian populace; two winners’ designs will be selected and will be available for purchase online. Children are encouraged to submit designs for Skewered! stickers that will be voted on by the Atlantian populace. The children’s sticker winner will also be available to purchase. 

Even though we cannot gather together to stab and poke our friends this year, we hope that Atlantians will take this opportunity to be creative, support their artist friends, and create a t-shirt to be the envy of the kingdom! In addition we encourage the children of Atlantia to create a design for decal stickers to show off their creative side. The deadline for submissions is June 6th, after which designs will be publicized on the Shire of Roxbury Mill website and voting will become available via a Google Forms link. Winners will be announced live virtually on June 20th, and merchandise purchase links will become available.
