Kansas City, Mo. (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Hallmark today announces the winners in its recent card-creation contest, “Watch What You Say … Again!” Greeting card design and writing hopefuls were invited to create a funny birthday card to send to anyone, but with a new twist! Entrants weren’t allowed to use certain words – Old, Special or Party.
Contestants submitted their creations in November. The 24 winning designs will be sold on Hallmark.com beginning Jan. 9. In-store winners will be announced in May 2012 and will be featured where ever Hallmark products are sold starting in June 2012. Winners each receive $250 and could win an additional $250 if their cards are chosen for in-store sales.
Hallmark judges looked for cards with funny images and writing that worked well together and could be sent to many different people. Participants could enter a total of three different cards, two entries for anyone birthday and one entry for belated birthday.
This is Hallmark’s 29th consumer-created card contest. The winners are from 14 U.S. states and a providence of Canada. Also in this contest, one entrant created two winning cards. Here are the winners in Hallmark’s “Watch What You Say … Again!” competition:
Tega Cay, S.C.
Jacksonville Beach, Fla.
New Orleans, La.
Garden City, Mich.
De Ruyter, N.Y.
Lago Vista, Texas
Vernon, British Columbia, Canada
Also this week, Hallmark announces the opening of the latest card competition – “¡Qué Funny Birthday!” Consumers are invited to create muy comico (very funny) birthday cards with a Latino style in the image or words. Entrants are encouraged to check out the Hallmark Contest Facebook page for tips on this contest. Submissions will be accepted Jan. 9 through 29.
