SPOKANE, Wash. — The competition to design next year’s Bloomsday Finisher Shirts is now live!

The deadline to submit a design is September 16. The artist who submits the winning design will receive $1,000 and a lifetime of fame for designing one of Spokane’s most famous t-shirts.

“The Bloomsday Finisher Shirt is one of Bloomsday’s proudest traditions,” said Jon Neill, Bloomsday Race Director. “The design and color of the jersey is kept secret until the morning of the race. This secret, in addition to earning your shirt after completing the 12 km course, makes the t-shirt one of the most valuable possessions of Spokane.

The Bloomsday Finisher Shirt is Spokane’s best kept secret – and also one of the most treasured items in any runner’s wardrobe. Shirts are often displayed along fences and porches ahead of Bloomsday weekend.

Anyone can enter the shirt design contest. Bloomsday receives submissions from graphic artists, design studios, art students and elementary schools.

You can submit your finishing shirt design HERE.

Bloomsday 2023 is May 7. Bloomsday, founded in 1977, is one of the largest road races in the country. In 2022, nearly 30,000 people have registered for the race, including virtual participants. Bloomsday is held annually on the streets of Spokane on the first Sunday in May. 2023 marks the 47e functioning.
