Fashion retailer ‘fishes’ for an artist to design its new charity T-shirt

Clothing brand Weird Fish is searching for a new artist to design its next limited edition T-shirt for The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (rspb).

Weird Fish’s first artist T-shirt was created in 1993 and the company has gone on to sell hundreds of different fishy designs. Known and loved for its quirky and bold T-shirt designs, the company is now offering artists the chance to create a new design with instant impact for the rspb.

Entrants need to submit at least three of the six design ideas created in the last competition, which are; The Redshank Redemption, Wuthering Kites, Raiders of the Lost Lark, Purple Crane, Jurassic Lark and Cranespotting. Designs must be submitted by midnight on Wednesday May 25. Weird Fish will then select the winning design to be made into the new rspb charity T-shirt, with the opportunity for the winner to join the team of Weird Fish artists, and create designs for future seasons.

Weird Fish continues to support the rspb as its chosen charity. The rspb is the UK’s largest nature conservation charity, working to secure a healthy environment for all wildlife.

Entries can be submitted in JPEG, PNG or PDF and can be uploaded to Weird Fish’s Facebook, tweeted to @WeirdFishTweets, tagged on Instagram @Weirdfishltd or emailed directly to with the subject line ‘Find an Artist Competition.’

John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, added: Weird Fish makes clothes for people who enjoy nature and getting outdoors. Through partnering up with the rspb, we’re able to make a difference to the green spaces and surrounding communities across the UK, which is something our customers care about, too. We are keen to extend the opportunity for new artists to join our team and bring some fresh ideas to our legendary artist T-shirt range.”

The winning T-shirt will be produced from November 2016 and the chosen designer will receive £250 to spend online and may have the opportunity to join the Weird Fish team in a freelance artist position.
