2010 Turkey Trot Artwork Design Contest (Ending 5/22)


I know everyone just answered out loud “YES, PLEASE”. Soooo, if you’re an aspiring graphic designer and think you can design a killer logo, then read on because from right now until MAY 22nd you have the opportunity to submit a design for the 2010 Turkey Trot and have the chance to win a year of FREE ThunderCloud Subs (and the chance to see your design plastered all around town).

Every year on Thanksgiving Day, the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot–a 5 mile run, one mile walk, and Kids K–takes place benefitting Caritas of Austin (an organization that provides a service continuum for those experiencing poverty). Since 1990, the Turkey Trot has raised over $1,000,000 for the charity, and this year will be the 20th anniversary and largest predicted Trot ever. Oh ya, and the whole event is sponsored by ThunderCloud–the Austin sandwich staple that’s been around since 1975–(hence the great grand prize).


The 2010 ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot logo will be used on all merchandise and marketing including shirts, race forms, posters, website and print ads. To the extent of any inconsistency in the website or advertising associated with the Contest or other Contest materials, these Official Rules prevail.


The objective of this whole contest is to create original art to use for the 2010 ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot to benefit Caritas of Austin.

ALL artwork must include both the ThunderCloud Subs logo and the Caritas of Austin logo

ALL artwork must be original to the entrant and submitted as a JPG or PDF file, or original illustration. Art can be line art or illustration but not to include photos. Art must be four color process.

ThunderCloud Subs reserves the right to make or request specific changes from the artist to his respective art.

2. If you work for ThunderCloud, an affiliation associated with the contest, or if you’re a contest judge (or judge’s family member) then… sorry… can’t enter.

3. You have to be at least 18 years old to enter OR have a parent/legal guardian’s permission

And, now you’re asking, HOW EXACTLY DO I ENTER? Well… Either e-mail your entry to T_Cloud@austin.rr.com or snail mail it to ThunderCloud Subs Art Contest, 1102 West 6th St., Austin, TX 78703, Attn: Art Contest.

    A year’s worth of Thundercloud subs would be such a win. I know Jimmy John’s had a similar promotion through Facebook that garnered a lot of attention. Hopefully there are lots of submissions for the Thundercloud Turkey Trot contest. Best of luck to the people who submit!
