Do You Have What It Takes? Call for Design Submissions


Help support survivors of crime and raise awareness for crime victims’ rights during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) by submitting a shirt design for our Run for Rights Surv5K!

As a community, the District of Columbia can help crime victims and their loved ones across our city stand with, and advocate for, survivors of crime. Join the Network for Victim Recovery of DC (NVRDC) for the Run for Rights Sur5K and Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 16th at East Potomac Park. This event is part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week 2016, a nationwide effort to raise awareness for crime victims’ rights and restore victims’ hope for healing and recovery. 

Are you a survivor of crime or know someone impacted by crime? Do you have a passion for creating art that tells a story?

Share your talents with us and help us raise awareness for crime victims’ rights! Submit a design to our Surv5K T-Shirt Contest and have your work featured shirts for race attendees.

Designs are currently being accepted in two different categories: crime survivors, for participants who have self-identified as victims of crime, and survivor supporters, for participants who want to show their friends, family members, or neighbors that they stand with victims of crime in our city. The winning t-shirt designs will be printed on shirts and worn by runners at the Run for Rights Surv5K on Saturday, April 16th.

Designs should embody the 2016 NCVRW theme and select from one of the two colors:

NCVRW 2016 theme: Serving Victims. Building Trust. Restoring Hope.

Colors: Medium blue and gold*

*Please note that designs can only be printed in a single color.

Join us in this great opportunity to raise awareness for crime victims’ rights and to support victims of all types of crime in the city. We look forward to seeing your designs!

Please send questions and submissions (pdf or photo) to: no later than March 28, 2016.
