Are you a professional designer? A budding student designer who has a fresh take on fashion? Well the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is looking for you. The WICB has launched a competition for designers to produce new kits for the 2015 international season. The Board is seeking new designs for the men’s One-Day International and T20 teams as well as the Women’s team. “The West Indies limited overs playing kit is iconic and one of the most recognisable and loved in the cricket world. This competition presents a unique opportunity to designers in the Caribbean to compete and possibly have their design be worn by the West Indies Men’s and Women’s teams and showcased around the world on live international television coverage,” WICB Marketing and Communications Manager Imran Khan said. “This is in addition to the prestige which will come with having been the first independent designer to design the West Indies team kit by way of an open competition,” Khan added. “The winning designs could be worn by all the superstar West Indies players and we are looking forward to a hugely competitive process and a plethora of designs from seasoned and aspiring designers alike,” Khan explained. The competition is open to all designers of all ages who are citizen of or resident in any WICB jurisdiction. The deadline for submission is August 29 and full details on how to enter and the terms and conditions for the competition are available at www.windiescricket.com/kitdesign. (PR/SAT)
