Calling all WOC-identifying artists! We’re in search of a rad graphic to celebrate our athletes competing toward Olympic dreams.

Oiselle’s current roster of sponsored athletes features powerful women of color challenging US norms in the distance events. In light of the USA Track & Field Olympic Trials this summer, and for the love of our athletes competing, we’re celebrating their determination, grit, and joy as they strive toward a 2024 US Olympic Team qualification. With your help, the winning design will be featured on the front of a black or white shirt and sold leading up to the USA Track & Field Trials. Proceeds will be donated to the Running Industry Diversity Coalition!

We are a By Women, For Women brand, and we’re excited to celebrate both the determined women on our team and the communities that raised them. We encourage female-identifying and gender expansive artists to apply.

Share with your friends and spread the word!

Inspiration

Track is a solitary pursuit, but success doesn’t happen in isolation. Each athlete lives a uniquely independent journey on the way to  the Olympic Trials starting line, representing miles run, mental and physical challenges overcome, and a lifetime of striving. Each athlete is an essential presence in the greater community of the sport: their lives intersect in a dance of highs, lows, and ambitions, and they support, motivate, and influence each other’s movement through life and sport.
