The 2018 SHINE Bike Design Challenge

In partnership with the SHINE Mural Festival, we’re inviting the community to bring new bike basket artwork to our St. Petersburg fleet. Show your love for St. Pete and its internationally renowned mural scene by designing bike baskets that represent our city!

“Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world.” – Grant Petersen.

The challenge will be open to submissions until August 20, when a panel of judges will select 20 finalists to put to public vote. The five winning designs will be featured on Coast Bike Share baskets throughout the SHINE Mural Festival 2018!

    Q: Is there anything I can’t include on the design?

    A: The design must be the original creation of the entrant. Entries that contain discriminatory images, content, or inspiration, profane or offensive language, or third party copyrights, trademarks, content, or other images owned or controlled by a third party other than the entrant will not advance.

    Q: How will you notify me if I am selected as a finalist or winner?

    Q: Who is judging the competition?

    A: The panel of judges will be comprised of staff from the SHINE Mural Festival, Coast Bike Share, and Florida CraftArt.

    Good luck!
