Think Act Vote and UK-based ethical fashion label, Komodo have launched a t-shirt design competition with the goal of inspiring people to engage in politics through fashion. The campaign coincides with the coming election in the UK and Katharine Hamnett -- the Katharine Hamnett who created the first slogan tee in the '80s -- will select the top design. She says, "Thousands of people have died and are dying all over the world for the right to vote. It is one of our most precious possessions. Use it before we loose it."

The only proviso is that the design must include the words "Think Act Vote". Submissions can be uploaded to the Think Act Vote website before the deadline of 12
noon on Sunday 7th March. An online public vote will determine a shortlist of 10 designs. The winner will be decided by the Think Act Vote judging panel, made up of some of
the best-known faces in ethical fashion and design, including ethical hero Katherine Hamnett, celebrated illustrator Daisy de Villeneuve and the original 'anti-preneur', Cyndi Rhoades.
The t-shirt will be produced by Komodo and will be available to purchase online and in selected shops across the UK. Runners-up will feature in a beautifully produced lifestyle book alongside a creative anthology of people's responses to one simple question--designed to get people thinking about the positive choices we can make for our future--'What's the future you would choose?'
