Want to see your design on our latest merch AND help support people living with motor neurone disease? Then make sure you enter our tea towel design competition!

The details:

Put your creativity to the test to create your tea towel design and email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (please share as a link, eg WeTransfer, Dropbox or Google Drive)!

We’re looking for a creative design that will be printed in (single colour) navy blue onto a natural cotton tea towel. All aspects of the design must be your original work. Your design should be able to fit a 370mm (w) x 500mm (h) rectangular area (total tea towel size will be 500mm (w) x 660mm (h)).

Files submitted should be PNG or high-resolution JPEG/JPG. 

Submissions should include a few words about yourself and your design, as well as your contact email address so we can let you know if you’re one of the top designs, or are the overall winner!

The winner:

MND NSW will select the top designs, which will then be shared on social media (and possibly in other publications, such as our newsletter and website).

The design that receives the most ‘likes’ on social media will be deemed the winner.

The winning design will be printed on a tea towel and will be launched as part of our “Drink Tea for MND” national event in August 2021. The tea towels will be made available for sale through our online store to raise funds for MND NSW to support people living with motor neurone disease and their families.

The winning designer will receive a tea towel featuring their design, and a marvellous merch pack from MND NSW. The winning design will be acknowledged through our social channels, E-News and website.

The fine print:

Entries are open to people residing in Australia. Entries close on July 1.

By entering you agree all design will remain the intellectual property of MND NSW. The designer will not receive royalties or monetary compensation for their design, or sales of tea towels their design appears on. The winner will receive a tea towel featuring their design and MND NSW merchandise pack, upon provision of their Australian postal address.

All aspects of the submitted design should be the designer’s original work. If the design is deemed to have been copied, breached copyright, or have used elements from another designer, it will be ineligible to be part of the top 10 designs, or be the winning design.

Alterations may need to be made to your design to suit printing processes (for example changes to file type, colour changes, or cropping/resizing of the design).

MND NSW retains rights to final decisions to select the winning design, and to change competition details (for example, entry closure dates) where necessary.

Details shared with us about you and your design may also be shared on social media and in other marketing, such as the MND NSW newsletter and website – please only provide details you’re happy to share publicly. Please note, provided details may be shortened or edited (for example to fit in a social media post). Your design will also be shared on social media for ‘voting’ purposes. Please note, your design may be altered to fit required image sizes or incorporated into a ‘mockup’ for voting, marketing and social sharing.
