To celebrate the start of our second decade, we want the official 2019 museum t-shirt to have a special design.

Capture the theme: The Rapid Advance of Computing

Entries will be selected by our expert panel and the winner will receive:

  • 4 t-shirts for friends and family featuring your winning design
  • 1 year free entry to the Museum
  • a selection of TNMOC goodies for the winning designer
  • and if you are a student, a free visit for your class to The National Museum of Computing.
