For the last 26 years, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has held the John C. Garand Match, a unique event where participants use vintage “As-Issued” M1 Garand rifles over a course of fire with 10 shots prone slow-fire, 10 shots prone from standing rapid-fire and 10 shots standing, all at 200 yards. It's a favorite among the century-old National Matches fired at Camp Perry each year. The year 2024's Garand Match has a wearable twist: a t-shirt logo contest!
Whether you’re a Garand rifle enthusiast or simply someone who loves to be creative, you’re eligible to enter! The contest opens Jan. 15 and runs through end of day on March 15, 2024. The winning logo will be displayed on the 2024 National Garand Match t-shirt and other marketing materials at the annual National Matches at Camp Perry this summer--with the winning artist receiving a $500 gift certificate from the CMP. Top designs will be chosen by CMP staff members, with the overall winner chosen by YOU through a voting system (one vote per person).
To enter, submit your artwork in a JPEG, PDF or Vector (.ai or .eps) format to Sara Rozanski, CMP Highpower Rifle Coordinator, at [email protected]. Please include your name, email and phone number. All participants must also fill out an Artwork Release form that will be issued after submission. Please contact Sara with all other questions regarding contest details. Good luck!
