Thank you for your Submissions

We've received many amazing entries this year in our 2024 WVC Annual Conference T-Shirt Design Contest.

Your creativity really shined, and we appreciate you taking the time to illustrate and design the shirts among your busy schedules. We're now reviewing all of the submissions based on the criteria below:

The most creative design: should be original and showcase the theme in an imaginative and engaging way.

The most scientific design: should demonstrate a deep understanding of veterinary medicine and its complexities.

The most anatomical design: should showcase a detailed and accurate representation of the anatomy of an animal.

Please note, if your design is selected, you'll be notified the week of Aug. 14 and your design will be featured on our WVC Annual Conference t-shirts.

Remember to join our WVC Annual Conference waitlist for the latest on all things WVC, including registration open.

Special shout-out to Leonard the Painting Dog!

We were so impressed with the design submitted by Leonard the Painting Dog that we made an exception to our rules, and allowed him to participate in our contest.

Leonard is a 3-year-old Border Collie who lives in Fairfax, Virginia. He is a trickster extraordinaire, but one of his favorite pastimes is painting! His artwork has been featured in galleries all over the US, in London, and most recently he even worked on a collaboration piece that was sent to Bangkok, Thailand to Belinda Carlisle of the Go-Gos!*

We were particularly impressed with Leonard's creative approach to our theme of 'It's Time To Vet Differently' - talk about painting outside the box!

Way to go, Leonard!
