This opportunity could truly launch someone’s design career, while giving them a unique platform to be recognized.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
Invitation Consultants.com, the online destination for party and wedding invitations and social stationery, is calling all up-and-coming designers to create invitations for our 2nd Annual Design Contest. The company is seeking individuals nationwide to enter original works for a chance to win cash prizes up to $1,000, and have the piece featured and sold on the company website.
This is the second design contest that Invitation Consultants has held. The first produced more than 100 entries and of those entries, more than 20 designs were selected to be featured for sale on the company’s web site.
Designs will be reviewed and judged on four areas: originality, creativity and use of both color and space. The contest is open to any designer - entry-level or skilled. Entrants may also choose what style of design they want to submit, as Invitation Consultants offers everything from birthday and wedding invitations, to fun and quirky pet announcements. Artists can showcase their own area of expertise and design in a distinctive invitation, based on what truly interests them. Last year’s winner, Mary Beth from Austin, TX designed a baby shower invitation – which is now being sold in three varieties on Invitation Consultants.com.
“We are excited to provide unknown creatives the opportunity to have one of their original designs showcased for thousands to see and purchase," said Allison De Meulder, CEO of Invitation Consultants, Inc. “This opportunity could truly launch someone’s design career, while giving them a unique platform to be recognized.”
Alongside Invitation Consultants, an accomplished judging panel will select the winning designs. The judges are: Maria McBride, Wedding Style Director at Brides magazine, Margaret Wong, co-founder of Project Wedding, Stacie Francombe, founder and CEO of Get Married Media, and Heather Peel and Emily Hamilton, the founders of Invitation Buzz.
The contest began on Tuesday, April 20 and will end on Tuesday, July 20, 2010 at 10 AM EST. The winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 3 on the website. The winners will receive cash prizes, including $1,000 for first prize, $500 for 2nd prize and $250 for 3rd prize, and their designs will be available for purchase on the Invitation Consultants website. Winners will receive a commission of 5% on each sale of their invitations. More information about the contest, rules and regulations, and how to submit designs, can be found at here.
