Win Tickets To Up the Creek – 30 Year Reunion T-shirt Design Competition

Up the Creek 2020 Presented by Jägermeister, will be taking place on 6 – 9 February 2020 on the very same spot where it all began – the banks of the Breede River outside of Swellendam. Creekers are invited to celebrate the 30 Year Reunion at the River, with over 50 bands performing across 4 stages, including some epic throwback acts that have rocked the stages over the last three decades. As always, the fest will be filled with great music, good food, short queues, and a whole lot of gees.

With just over 2 months to go, the countdown to Up the Creek 2020 has begun, and in honour of the anniversary, the festival is giving you the chance to win tickets!

How can you be the lucky winner? It’s easy – all you have to do is design the official ‘Up The Creek: 30 Year Reunion at the River’ T-shirt. This is no ordinary festival T-shirt; it is the official T-shirt of the festival, which will be on sale to all Creekers.

The Brief:

  • Design only the front of the shirt (as the bands playing will be placed on the back)
  • Colour of shirt can be any solid colour
  • 4 colours maximum in design
  • Use the Up the Creek logo in your design (you can download the open files here)
  • Consider the market: 30 – 40 year olds

The winning design must be supplied in hi-res layer format for printing purposes.

How is the winner selected? All T-shirt entries will be judged by the Up the Creek Festival Team based on the following criteria:

a) Originality of idea and design (25%)
b) Whether the Up the Creek festival-goers will actually want to wear the T-shirt (25%)
c) If the T-shirt design meets the theme of the competition brief (20%)
d) It’s a democracy out here and public opinion counts! Public comments received (30%)

Decisions of the judges shall be final in all matters related to this Contest. Up the Creek will choose finalists from all designs submitted, and post the designs online for public voting.

Finalists announced via Between 10&5 (Online Article and via social media Channels) and via Up the Creek social media channels. 

Up the Creek reserves the right to make/request minor changes to enable printing

When is the deadline? All entries must be submitted to  and by 15th December 2019.

What can you win? The chosen design wins 2 x Full Weekend Tickets (6 – 9 February 2020) to the festival AND R1000 Howler credit to share (Howler credit buys your drinks at the bars and food). 3 x runner up designs win 1 x Full Weekend Ticket each.
