Howdy, fellow J-School students!

The SPJ is officially launching the class of 22-23 hoodie design competition and would like your ideas!

A well-designed hoodie will not only save us from the dire cold, but will also be ‘the only official’ merch from the J-School.

Students can create their own hoodie designs and submit them to by 24 October 11:59 PM. Once we have received all submissions, we will send another email for the student body to vote on their favorite design.

If you are submitting a design, here are guidelines to adhere to:

  • The design should not be obscene or offensive to anyone. 
  • It must be an original design created by the person submitting it (no outsourcing).
  • It must have the words Columbia Journalism School or Columbia Journalism.
  • If you use the crown, it must be the official Columbia crown, with no words on top of it.

Please submit your design by emailing it to 

The deadline for submitting the design is 24 October at 11:59 PM. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
