This first annual "Freedom, Strength and Love" T-shirt design search offers the winning artist the opportunity to have her/his artwork showcased on Palomaya's limited edition T-shirt sold exclusively on palomaya.com, participate in the Palomaya Summer 2010 photo-shoot and receive national media exposure.
"We're excited to launch the first annual "Freedom, Strength and Love" T-shirt design contest," stated Lorena Musselman, founder and owner of Palomaya. "The limited edition T-shirt will celebrate the work of a Latino artist, and raise awareness of the need to contribute to the organizations that are making a difference in the lives of Hispanic women and children."
The first annual "Freedom, Strength and Love" T-shirt design contest, seeks unique and one-of a kind designs that cater to the bicultural Latina and convey the "Freedom, Strength and Love" movement. Design can illustrate one of the following theme topics:
-"Freedom, Strength and Love" incorporated in one design
-Either "freedom," "strength" or "love" as a design topic, or
-Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos.
The one-of-a-kind design must include:
-An artistic or cultural connection to Latin America AND the USA
-The "Palomaya" brand name
-The "Palomaya" logo
-"Freedom, Strength and Love"
Designs that depict or interpret the following will not be considered:
-Lewd or vulgar language.
-Language that is hateful, defamatory, slanderous or libel
-Language that promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or promotes discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, age or any other basis protected by Federal, State, or Local Law, Ordinance, or Regulation.
-Language that is unlawful, in violation of or contrary to the laws or regulations in any state where the Submission is created.

Based on Lorena Musselman's shared gift of "Freedom, Strength and Love," Palomaya designs are uniquely created to remind Latinas of who they are ÔÇô and to show them how special they are.
Each T-shirt is designed with the goal of reconnecting bicultural Latinas with both their Latin and American roots, cultures and traditions, so they mare share them with their loved ones ÔÇô especially those of younger generations.
Palomaya was launched earlier this year, together with its commitment to contribute 15% of its proceeds to charities and non-profit organizations that focus on helping local communities.
