Results of the IWSG t-shirt competition

We are pleased to annouce the results of the first IWSG T-shirt competition! We had a wonderful range of designs sent in and thought it was a tough decision, the ExCo Judging panel voted that Chris Heward’s “Vanellus” design was the winner!
This design can be found on both a standard and fitted style of t-shirt and on a tote bag. Chris will be getting one of these t-shirts himself and has won a year’s members to the IWSG.


Chris Heward created this design for our winter 2021 IWSG t-shirt contest and won! He was declared the outright winner and we thank him for his faboulous design.

In second place is Alex Dodds with her “Hidden Waders”, a wonderfully clever design that the judging panel really liked too. Again this design can be found on standard and fitted t-shirt as well as a tote bag. Alex will be winning a copy of her design on a tote bag as runner up.

This is the running up design by Alex Dodds and shows her lovely use of perspective to hide a world of waders into the outline of another.


There were so many lovely designs in this completitions that we’ve decided to also put up three other designs that were Highly Commended by the panel. These are (in no particular order): Shawkat Khan’s “Wader Group”, Camilo Carneiro’s “Whimbrel” and Marc Giles’ “Plover Lover”.

From left to right, winners of our inaugural t-shirt design competition run during the winter of 2021-2022: ‘Whimbrel’ design by Camilo Carneiro, ‘Wader Group’ by Shawkat Khan and ‘Plover Lover’ by Marc Gilles.
