…and as of today, April 1, we are now accepting your design submissions for the official PrideFest souvenir t-shirt of 2014!

Between now and April 29, 2014, we will be sharing your designs on our Facebook page, and the image with the highest number of votes will decorate this year’s LIMITED EDITION festival t-shirt!

How does the contest work?

  • Consult the Official 2014 Contest Rules.
  • Complete the Official 2014 Contest Entry Form.
  • Email your submission, including entry form and image, to info@pridefest.com
  • All submissions will be added to the PrideFest Milwaukee Facebook as they are received.
  • Our community will vote on their favorite design until 11:59 p.m. on May 5, 2014.
  • On May 6, the winner will be announced and notified.
  • On June 6, the winning limited edition, limited run souvenir t-shirt will go on sale — at PrideFest Milwaukee 2014!

Please note that you are designing a image to be used on a single-sided, centered screen-printed, short-sleeve standard t-shirt.  We are unable to accept designs that require customized shirt styles.   Looking for inspiration?  Check out the 2013 Souvenir T-Shirt Contest Photo Album.

We can’t stress this enough:   ALL ENTRIES MUST INCLUDE A COMPLETED AND SIGNED ENTRY FORM.  We can’t accept your design without it.

Only a limited number of T-shirts are sold each year, so get yours on Friday night!

Show Your Pride in our 2013 photo contest!

Were you at PrideFest Milwaukee 2013?

Did you take photos of your Pride family at this year’s “reunion?”

Share YOUR pride and joy in this year’s Show Your Pride photo contest!

Here’s how it works:

  • Post your own, original photos to our Facebook wall
  • Tag friends and family in the photos
  • Add the caption “Show Your Pride 2013”

We will be collecting photos until midnight on Sunday, July 21.   Our Board of Directors will review all photos  and chose three winning contestants.   Photos will be considered for five specific criteria, including cinematography, emotion, uniqueness,  diversity, and how well the image reflects the spirit of PrideFest Milwaukee.  The number of “likes” a photo receives from the community will earn bonus points!

Three photos will be drawn on Monday, July 22 — and each winner will receive:

  • Two weekend passes to PrideFest Milwaukee 2014
  • $50 VISA gift card to spend at PrideFest 2014
  • …and your image will be part of our “marquee” banner that will appear on PrideFest 2014 advertising!

Check out our contestants from PrideFest 2012 at our Facebook photo album.

So come on, let’s see your Pride!  This contest is officially ON!


And the winner is…
