Call to Artists

After nearly 15 years, Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge is finally updating its t-shirt design and we want you to submit your artwork!  Hakalau Forest NWR is collaborating with Hawai`i Nei to bring this exciting T-Shirt Design Contest to local artists.  We are looking for designs that embody the essence of Hakalau Forest and native species found there.
First place selection will be featured on our new t-shirts, while other submissions may be considered for future t-shirts, promotional items, and media. We are looking for original, two-dimensional submissions that translate well onto fabric such as: paintings, drawings, digital drawing/paintings, relief prints, photographic sketches/paintings, etc.  Artwork will be accepted now through June 15, 2019 and can be submitted on the Hawai`i Nei website at:
