T-Shirt Ideas – Writing Contest #37

We’re looking for T-Shirts for the world’s first Narnia convention, LionCon, which will be held in Southern California in June 2008. Narniaweb, Narniafans, and The Lion’s Call are putting it together, and we need a really great shirt idea. It can be funny. It can be serious. It must be fabulous! So we’re gathering ideas through a contest. Your entry, or a variation, might make it onto the shirt! Give us your best shot! (Remember that Prince Caspian will be coming out just before, so Caspian-themed shirts may be timely.) NOTE: You may not use the words ‘Narnia’ or ‘Aslan’ in your entry. NOTE: All entries become the property of Honor Conventions Inc. Entrants understand that the winner will receive no reward for participation.

Here are a few examples, but please submit yours as separate entries. A picture of a wardrobe with a tag that says ‘expired’. Underneath, the words ‘Wardrobe not working? That’s why there’s LionCon!’ A letter from Professor Kirke, calling all Friends of the Lion to gather together.
