KANSAS CITY, Mo. (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
Today’s pets are more than just loved, they are part of the family. With that dedication in mind, Hallmark today announces the winners in its recent card-creation contest, “All About Pets.” Greeting card hopefuls were invited to use a photo and original writing to create fun, sweet, or silly cards to say happy birthday, congratulations, or thank you to a fellow pet-lover.
Contestants submitted their creations in October. The 38 winning designs will be sold on Hallmark.com starting in December. In-store winners will be announced and featured in Kroger stores in June 2013. 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 photography and writing that worked well together and could be sent to all types of pet-lovers. Participants could enter a total of four cards—two birthday, one thanks, and one congrats. Entrants were encouraged to check out the Hallmark Contest Facebook page for tips on this contest.
This is Hallmark’s 38th consumer-created card contest. The 37 winners are from 22 different U.S. states and two provinces of Canada. One winner won two different card entries. Here are the winners in Hallmark’s “All About Pets” competition:
