Tunnel 2K Velocity Design Competition

Be part of this year’s exciting Tunnel 2K Velocity race night at the Tyne Tunnels!

We’re looking for talented young people to design the official race night t-shirt.

The winning design will be available for sale on the night, and the lucky winner will win one of their t-shirts, signed by the 2013 Tunnel 2K champion.

If you’re under 16, and think you’ve got what it takes to create something that captures the unique, high adrenaline, under water, challenge of Tunnel 2K Velocity, then get creating now and send us your best efforts!

The T-shirt design competition is open to under-16s, with a set of four VIP tickets to the event up for grabs and a £100 high street gift voucher for the winning entrant.  The winning design will be printed onto T-shirts as official event merchandise, with a special signed T-shirt autographed by this year’s T2K champion being presented to the competition winner.

There are no limitations on the design, so long as it can fit onto the front of a T-shirt. The winning entry will best capture the essence of the exciting race night, showcasing what people can achieve through sheer muscle power and mental strength.

Children up to the age of 16 can submit their entries via Instagram @tt2kvelocity or by emailing tt2kv@tt2.co.uk  Alternatively hard copies can be posted to TT2kV, TT2 Limited, Tyne Tunnels 2, Wallsend, Tyne & Wear, NE28 0PQ.
