  • (1888PressRelease) June 09, 2011 - Shirtlab, a leading personalised T-shirt design website, has collaborated with Volunteering England to offer a T-shirt design competition and also raise awareness of charitable causes which depend on volunteers. As part of the Volunteers Week celebrations, Nick Sharratt, illustrator of the Tracy Beaker books written by Jacqueline Wilson has designed a special Volunteers' Week t-shirt featuring the famous character.

    "The Volunteer's Week T-shirt design competition has put our new competition hosting system to the test and we've been delighted to see the T-shirt designs coming in," said Steve Beynon, MD and founder of Shirtlab. "We've been working closely with Volunteering England and are very proud to offer the unique charity t-shirt design by Nick Sharrett."

    When asked about the new competition hosting section of the Shirtlab website, Steve said; "Once the competition has been arranged with us, it's very easy for people to participate as it uses the same easy-to-use online T-shirt design tools as the rest of the site. What makes the new competition section so powerful is that it enables people to vote for their favourite design without the competition administrator having to count votes or trawl through email notifications," Steve explained. "Once a design has been submitted, it can be promoted very easily as there are buttons to post a link to it on Twitter and Facebook. Then competition entrants can easily involve their friends and ask for votes in their social networks," Steve concluded.
