Show the World How You See the Summit

Since 1995, we’ve heard stories and seen creative artwork that depicts your experience with The Global Leadership Summit. So as we celebrate another great season, we’re intentionally inviting you to submit your creativity through our first international t-shirt design contest.

Based on a recommendation from Summit faculty alum, Blake Mycoskie, founder of Toms Shoes, we are hosting a crowd-sourcing design contest with 99designs, Tuesday October 18th – Friday October 28th.

Use your creativity—visuals or words—to help depict what the Summit has meant to you. What image comes to mind when you think of this worldwide movement? Is there one visual or a collage of photos? Is there a word or a phrase that best describes your experience? If you’re not a designer, please comment below and share your story to aid the brainstorming process.

Then step up to get involved with the design of the 2012 Summit international t-shirt concept:

1. Share. Please help us connect with artists and creative-types by emailing, tweeting, facebooking, and blogging about this opportunity.

2. Design. This is your chance to show the world how you see and experience TGLS. Submit your t-shirt design at You’ll need to create an account and then search The Global Leadership Summit for contest specifics. To sweeten the deal, prize money will be awarded, including complimentary tickets for 4 to the Summit 2012.

3. Vote. Check back at 99designs each day for updates and to help choose your favorite t-shirt design. Who knows how we might be giving away t-shirts in the coming months?!

Here are a few of the words that our Summit team lives by (if it helps inspire you!), and be sure to check our Facebook page for stories from leaders around the world:

      The Global leadership Summit exists to transform Christian Leaders around the world with an injection of vision, skill development, and inspiration for the sake of the local church.

The Global Leadership Summit has become a unique two-day leadership development event that is unashamedly Christ-centered, intellectually challenging, and results-oriented, with a diverse faculty line-up that will create disequilibrium for the sake of transformation in the Church.

In 2011 over 160,000 people will share this experience in over 400 cities around the world.

Lead Where You Are has become our rally cry to inspire leaders in all sectors to serve others for the sake of the local church.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for helping us spread the word!

The winning design will be announced on Tuesday, November 1 (which also happens to be the In-Conference deadline for the 2012 Summit).
