EDL T-shirt contest winners 2022

The winner of the contest to design an EDL t-shirt  for 2022 is Dominika Maj from Poland. Congratulations!

"I’m a graphic design high school student (ZSE-T im. Cichociemnych, Gliwice / Poland). My goal was to create a universal theme, understandable to everyone, regardless of their origin. The light bulb symbol alludes to creativity and self-discovery through collaboration with other people. Knowledge of languages allows us not only to communicate, but above all to develop. Participation in the competition was a great opportunity for me to prove myself and create something on my own - for everyone."

The second winner of the contest to design an EDL t-shirt  for 2022 is Oana Cătălina Neag from Romania. Congratulations!

"I made this design thinking about the diversity we have in Europe both in language and culture. Through the three different shapes which I animated with different expressions, I tried to evoke the idea of conversation and the fact that this day, the European Day of Languages, gives us the opportunity to realize that we are all Europeans, even if we have different "shapes" we all have something to learn from each other and the fastest way is through conversation."

Idea for school teachers: create a padlet for your class to show all designs. See this example from Cité scolaire du Couserans High school, Ariège, France.

We received many excellent creative designs this year – It is a shame we can only have one winner. Here are just some examples....

EDL T-shirt contest winner 2021

The winner of the 2021 EDL T-shirt contest is Tímea Svetková from Slovakia. Congratulations!

"As a student of graphic design, I wanted to make something creative and simple at the same time. One of my first ideas was to create a mascot, that would perfectly capture this competition and what other animal than parrot? Parrot for me represents an animal that can talk in every single language, if you teach him. Under his wings he unites languages and therefore for me it represents unity the most. This competition was a great opportunity for me to make something meaningful in a modern artform."

EDL T-shirt contest winner 2020

The winner of the 2020 EDL T-shirt contest is Catalina María Puebla Coenen from Spain. Congratulations!

"To make the design of this T-shirt, I was inspired by European languages which are symbolically lines that connect people by giving touches of glittering colours to our lives. I think the T-shirt fits perfectly with the philosophy of the competition."

EDL T-shirt contest winner 2019

The winner of the 2019 EDL T-shirt contest is Emilė Žandauskaitė from Vilnius Abraomas Kulvietis Classical Gymnasium/ Lithuania. Congratulation!

"This task was a completely new experience for me as I got acquainted with modern forms of art. As a result it encouraged me to keep looking for more as well as setting my creativity free. I drew what I felt and what seemed to be the best at that exact moment. I wanted to create something interesting and that could reflect the main idea of the contest. Winning the contest dispelled all my doubts about what I am capable of and I am truly happy about it."

EDL T-shirt contest winner 2018

The winner of the 2018 EDL T-shirt contest is Emily Van Cantfort from Belgium. Congratulations!

"I first studied graphic design and then started studying office management. As part of an assignment at a language exchange, we held our own competition for the best t-shirt design. I eventually won this, so I decided to also take part in the real competition. Luckily!"
