Yesterday was World Oceans Day!! For our first community competition in this collaboration with Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), we are giving one lucky member of the Adopt Me community the chance to design their very own Adopt Me x WDC charity tee! 🐬

This physical tee will be sold for ONE MONTH ONLY by WDC as a piece of official, limited edition Adopt Me merchandise. 100% of the profits will go to WDC to help them continue their vital conservation work and campaigns all over the world.

If you would like to enter this competition, please attach your design in an email (preferably in .png) and send it to by Monday 14th June at 23:59 UTC and we will announce a winner on our social media.

The winner will also receive:

  • A goody bag full of WDC merchandise
  • Adopt Me X WDC t-shirts, one in your size and one for a friend
  • A one-year WDC dolphin adoption
  • Mega Neon Narwhal
  • Mega Neon Dolphin
  • 10 Ocean Eggs!

Two runners up will also win a one-year WDC dolphin adoption, a Mega Neon Narwhal, and a Mega Neon Dolphin!


All designs must be original artwork and must be submitted as a .png or .jpg file.

Entries must be submitted by 11:59 BST on Monday 14th June 2021 to class as a valid entry. Entries received after this cut-off point will not be considered.

All submitted information will only be used for the purposes of the competition to allow us to notify winners and runners up, and will not be used by Uplift Games or WDC for any other purposes. It will, at all times, be handled in accordance with the General Data Protection Act (GDPR).

There is no upper or lower age limit for entering the competition and it is open to potential entrants from all countries. Entrants below the age of consent in their country of residence can only enter with the consent of their parents or guardian who must submit the application on behalf of the minor.

In the interest of fairness, entrants may only submit one design.

The designs do not need to feature the WDC, Uplift Games and/or AdoptMe logos however entrants can choose to include these if they wish, and you are granted a limited, revocable, royalty-free licence to use such logos solely for the purposes of your entry into this competition and to the extent permitted by WDC and Uplift Games.

Where designs show whales or dolphins, entrants must ensure that they are represented in a respectful way and that the designs do not include whales or dolphins in captivity or being harmed in any way, in line with WDC’s policies on Stopping Whaling and Ending Captivity. Designs deemed to not meet this criterion will not be eligible to be considered for the winner or runner-up prizes, as will any using derogatory or offensive imagery or language.

By submitting a design, you agree that should this be chosen as the winner WDC, and Uplift Games will adapt and utilize this design on t-shirts to be manufactured and sold for the purposes of raising funds for WDC’s conservation work and campaigns. You therefore grant WDC, and Uplift Games an exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free and irrevocable right and license to reproduce, copy, display, distribute, adapt, modify, edit and use the design for the purpose of manufacturing and selling the t-shirts and waive any moral rights you may have in and to the design. You also acknowledge that, other than the prizes outlined, no financial or other compensation will be paid to you and that WDC and Uplift Games are able to freely use this design for these purposes.

The winner and runners-up will be decided by a panel made of WDC and Uplift Games staff. The panel’s decision is final. Due to the number of entrants, we anticipate we sadly won’t be able to provide feedback on individual designs.

We reserve the right to manage the competition and entry eligibility at our reasonable discretion so as to ensure fair operation of the competition. Not complying with these terms might result in exclusion from the competition and your entries being removed.

These terms shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales, and the parties submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
