T-shirt slogan contest:




Design 1: Aparna Kar©
Even before I am born, I will be killed....
Even before my mother hears me cry, it will be quietened
Maybe because I am too tiny to be significant. Or maybe because I am more of a daughter to them than a child.

Stop sex determination and female foeticide
Save the girl child


Design 2 by Saikat Bose

Script your own slogans and post as comments. While you are allowed to post your fav slogans on more general topics, the contest is only for the ones with a social message.

After a considerable number of entries, the winner will be decided by a poll .

47 comments:

You don't know who said...

" I hate t-shirt slogan competitions"

saikat said...

hmm dunno whether i should state this or not..but what appu meant was tee slogans which has a social impact..appu do correct me if am wrong

it'll be a real delight if we all can stick to that...

wotsay ...

Aparna Kar said...

@saiki
Yes I did..but participation seems more prolific when allowed more general slogans :(
Let slogans be posted on miscellaneous topics... but we'll restrict the contest to the ones with a social message.. whatsay?

saikat said...

aye aye appu :)

but whats the prize *dreaming*

general slogan:

1)On the Front
Staring Cost: 100$ per Second

2)On the Front
I came I Saw I Shopped

On the Back
My Dad Went Bankrupt

tc..

Aparna Kar said...

@saiki
How about a date with me ? ? *wink wink*
Is it lucrative enough? :P
Lol I guess, friends wouldn't need a contest for it and strangers wouldn't care :D

How about my book and a movie from my personal collection. Shipped anywhere in India :)

I am honest... par yaar, u already have my book, so if u win- u will only get the dvd/vcd of THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (one of my most fav movies of course) :D

Aparna Kar said...

P.S. I am serious :)
Spread the word. I just did :D

saikat said...

marketing on ;)

abt the date with you...*wink* now no one gonna win it from me :P

lucrative *phew* just spell it :D

neeways shipping ur book is the best idea..*thumbsup*

we need more participation here...and abt the unwanted space..just see if you have put some extra para breaks or line breaks in the html code...i dnt think there can be any other reason...loading the same in my blog to check the code error

waise it was a nice idea after all :D

tc...

If a guy has to read your lengthy slogan on your T-shirt he will take about 15 seconds or more (depending on the size of the fonts). I tried to read some such slogan on a gal's T-shirt and thought the better of it.
How about this one?
Front: Stop gawking at me
Back: I am already hooked

saikat said...

candid rightly said...these are more of a banner kinda slogan or a print ad kinda...will create something crisp soon

arun said...

I am yet to get my copy from you...

Aparna Kar said...

@candid
LOL
I can understand your plight. But we have free T-shirts for the following day. Some which say things like:

1."My Eyes Are Up There.", with an arrow pointing up.
2. Wish these were brains.
3. Brains And Boobs. Best Of Both Worlds.
4. I don't fake it.
5. Things here appear bigger than they really are
6.If You Don't Eat 3.14159265, I'll Pass You By.
...
The possibilities are endless- keep adding to them. :D

Aparna Kar said...

@anand
For irony's sake? Huh?

Ok .. Let's make it:
T Shirts with slogans (with a red circle and slash through it)

saikat said...

'searching for a caption..i left it back home'

'The last time someone read this line he actually died'

'Seeing is Beleiving...You are seeing God'

omar said...

curtz said...

'I saved a LIFE today
I donated BLOOD today

WHAT DID YOU DO'

Aparna Kar said...

And talking of AIDS.. Here's something that happened in New Delhi on Sunday during the ongoing Seena Taan Ke campaign by the Truckers Corporation of India Foundation .
Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty

saikat said...

this is called leading by example of what not to do ...

candid diary said...

I found many sites for T-shirt slogans by googling ‘T-shirt slogan’. Two are:- http://www.humoroust-shirts.com/tshirt-slogans.htm and http://www.humoroust-shirts.com/cool-tshirts.htm

Aparna Kar said...

@saiki
I don't think kissing spreads AIDS! Hugging definitely does not.
This man believes India is his second home and has devoted countless days and dollars to fight AIDS.
What a shame that the media has decided to make a ruckus out of a trifle while he has done better things that are buzzworthy.
Anyways he looks a bit a drunk to me, and if he has done it consciously ( w/o the idea of protests of course) then the gimmick really worked.

At least ppl got to know of the campaign bcoz of a kiss!!!

tusnin said...

1>
Front: This T-Shirt changes colour every one hour
Back: I am an Indian politician


2>
The increasing number of divorces tells me Cupid is getting older and losing its precision at archery.

3>
Realization comes after you are royally screwed

4>
Front:
I was a tiny trouble for my parents.
So they got rid of me.

Back : Stop female foeticide

saikat said...

@ Tusnin: good ones *thumbsup*

@ Appu: You know sometimes negative publicity works..actually it brings out some publicity/awareness after all

when i wrote..lead by example of what not to do...what i meabnt was that...after the incident..the sole pic got more importance than the whole event...5 yrs down the line ppl will remember especially maybe all those truck drivers for whom it was meant...that 5 years back i saw some firangi gora hug shilpa shetty infront of us on stage..but will they remember on what occassion was it...

now whenever they will remember this day..the first recollection will be this incident..instead of the real message that richard gere wanted to portray...

i geneuinely respect that guy sheerly coz of the energy he has for this cause...maybe what he did was just to show that hugging and kissing dint spread aids...but then what came out..was what exactly i wrote in one line...

maybe its just the india mindset..which caught this activity and gave it more importance than the event...but second thoughts..does not the media show what its readers want to see..

after the three hour ordeal called meeting...dont think i can make any more sense.

tc...

tusnin said...

Print ad:

1. Booze, dope, shared needles and unprotected sex..
May seem like Heaven
But is the one-way ticket to Hell
Have a choice. Prevent AIDS

2. Be Positive
Always carry a condom

saikat said...

@ appu: modifying the second one a bit,

Be Positive But Dont Turn HIV +

Always Carry a Condom

also in the first ad how does booze n dope (non needles) lead to aids...aint it a bit misleading

now for a not so social tee caption :D

' #@$% $#@ ---> It doesn't mean anything '

Aparna Kar said...

@saikat
Too much of booze -> irresponsibility -> unsafe sex -> retrovirus -> AIDS
Is the pathway clear now ?:P
And it seems I can hardly say anything against alcohol here!!!

arun said...

@aparna...

Too much booze -> mid euphoria state -> sleep...

Way to prevent aids!
