Designers must submit a 2-3 colour design (25cm x 30cm) for the centre chest of a white t-shirt (as pictured below).

This is a chance to get creative and express yourself. Whatever the concept of women in climbing inspires in you is what we want to see.

All garments will be made from ethically sourced fabric and printed with water based paint. 

Hangar followers will vote for their favourite design and the winner will receive a £250 cash prize.

They’ll also have their work displayed on our website, social media channels, and at our climbing walls all over the UK.


To take part, submit your design to [email protected] by Sunday 4 April, and we will select our finalists before hosting a public vote to decide the overall winner. A winner will be announced on Friday 9 April and the items will be available from Wednesday 14 April.


  • Submit a 2-3 colour design for a white garment
  • Artwork dimensions: 15 cm x 30 cm (letterbox)
  • Design must have lettering which reads 'The Climbing Hangar' incorporated into the design (but can be small and doesn't have to feature the official Hangar logo
