>> The fax number for information about Norwegian Cruise Line's "aloha" hull design contest is 001-49-4961-81-4304. An incorrect number appeared Tuesday in an article on Page C1. Applications also can be obtained by e-mail from Also, while the hull design contest is open to all Hawaii artists, an accompanying aloha-shirt design contest is open only to current students of the University of Hawaii art program. The article said incorrectly that it was open to all residents. Applications are at the art department.

Talk about a large canvas.

Hawaii artists and designers are being asked to come up with a logo for the sides of a 77,000-ton ocean liner. The art would appear above the waterline on the Pride of Aloha, which is capable of carrying 2,400 passengers.

Norwegian Cruise Line Inc. said the ship, which is scheduled to go into service in Hawaii in October 2004, needs a new design. The winner of its contest to design Pride of Aloha's hull art will get $10,000 and a cruise for two around the islands.

NCL also is looking for an aloha-shirt design for its Hawaii-based crews. The winner in that competition will get $2,000.

The contests are open to all Hawaii artists of any age or experience.

Those interested in the hull-art contest can get details and entry forms by e-mailing or faxing 001-49-4961-81-43. The entry deadline is Oct. 31.

Entry forms for the aloha shirt competition are at the art office of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

NCL recently displayed a rendering of the hull art for its new 2,100-passenger Pride of America. That logo is a red-white-and-blue representation of the Stars and Stripes and the American Bald Eagle, which flares along the wide white sides of the ship.
