Artists Erasing Hunger - Overview, Entry & Upload Forms


284,000 PEOPLE / YR ON LI

THAT'S 65,000 / WK 




    Artists Can:

    1. Help Raise Money for LI Cares

    2. Showcase Your Talent & Earn Money From Your Artwork

    3. Encourage Adults & Students To Volunteer And Enroll In The LI Cares Volunteer Corps


    BELOW IS A SUMMARY OF HOW IT WORKS (Full Details In Entry Form)

    • The program runs from March 15 - June 15, 2018 so don't wait to start designing.
    • Artists create a design utilizing the Love The Island logo for placement on a T-Shirt (with a range of male / female, color, location options - see below) 

    • T-Shirts will be sold to the public on the Love The Island site for $35 with FREE shipping at: 
    • For each T-shirt sold:
      1. $5.00 goes to the Artist
      2. $5.00 goes to LI Cares (Love The Island will donate a minimum of $1,000 to LI Cares by 12/31/18 regardless of the number of shirts sold.)
    • T-Shirts will be "produced to order" with a requirement that orders must collectively reach a minimum # of 24 T-shirts / design during a 3 week PRE-ORDER PERIOD to be produced. If the 24 minimum orders is not met, buyers who who pre-ordered a T-shirt with their credit card (no funds will be taken until the minimum is reached) will have the orders cancelled (and the Artist and LI Cares will not receive $5/shirt).
    • NOTE: The Artist should spread the word to their individual and group networks of friends, family, followers etc. to encourage purchase to reach (and exceed) the 24 minimum order, but the Artist is not responsible for placing the order, collecting money, producing or distributing the T-Shirts. Love The Island will handle processing orders, screening the T-Shirts and delivery. Just create a great design and promote it. (It's a perfect concept for artists with a lot of followers or student artists looking for experience with an easy way to earn money for their artwork, as well as, groups such as schools, associations, clubs, teams, organizations, family reunions etc.)
    • Your design can take several forms.The following visual shows 4 different examples:
    • You can select whether you want your design to go on up to 8 of the 16 options below. You can offer a mix of colors and both genders, but for production purposes you can only select front OR back for all:
    1. A Men's and / or Ladies T-Shirt
    2. With up to 4 T-shirt color options for each gender
    3. And whether you want your design on the front OR the back of the T-Shirt (you can only have one location - Front or Back - for all 24+ shirts)


    SELECTION CRITERIA (Summary - Full Details In Entry Form)

    • Final selections will be at the sole discretion of Love The Island. We are not required to place a design on our site. All decisions are final. 

    OWNERSHIP OF MATERIALS (Summary - Full Details In Entry Form)

    • By submitting their designs the Artist agrees that Love The Island will own the rights to the designs as they include the LTI logo. However, the Artist and LI Cares will always receive advanced notice and similar compensation if the Artist's design is used for sale of an additional run of T-Shirts or for use on other products.
    • The Love The Island Logo cannot be used for any other purpose or given to any other person or entity for reproduction or the Artist and offending parties could risk legal action.
