Call for Creatives

Iowa Public Radio is looking for a fresh new design from an Iowa artist to be used on our 2024-2025 member t-shirt, mugs, stickers and more!

This is your opportunity to show us what IPR looks like to you.

Some details:

- The design we are looking for includes elements that represent Iowa Public Radio: curiosity, belonging, community, innovation, storying telling and shared experiences.

- Designs with 1-3 colors are optimal for shirt printing.

- Artists may submit more than one design

- IPR and the winning artist will enter into an agreement for licensing and parameters for use

- Runner-up submissions may be selected for a mug, calendar, sticker or future design

We are an independent non-profit advised by a volunteer board representing — and committed to — serving all of Iowa. Read more about our mission and our values.

Top Award: $600 and featured on IPR's 2024-2025 member t-shirt

Other Awards: $100 if selected for alternative print purposes

Designs will be chosen based on how well they fit the project objectives, their ability to fit within IPR's printing constraints and overall creativity.
