Hallmark today announces the winners in its recent card-creation contest, “¡Qué Funny Birthday!” Greeting card design and writing hopefuls were invited to create muy comico (very funny) birthday cards with a Latino style in the image or words for a favorite chico or chica. Entrants were encouraged to check out the Hallmark Contest Facebook page for tips on this contest.
Contestants submitted their creations in January. The 14 winning designs will be sold on Hallmark.com beginning March 5. In-store winners will be announced in April 2012 and will be featured where ever Hallmark products are sold starting in May 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 photos or designs with Spanish and English language that worked well together and could be sent to bicultural family and friends. Participants could enter a total of three different cards, one in each category – For Anyone, For Him and For Her.
This is Hallmark’s 30th consumer-created card contest. The 14 winners are from 10 different states. Here are the winners in Hallmark’s “¡Qué Funny Birthday!” competition:
