Hallmark judges looked for cards with funny or unique photos and writing that worked well together and could be sent to anyone.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
Hallmark today announces the winners in its recent card-creation contest, “A Very Tacky Christmas.” Greeting card design and writing hopefuls were invited to create funny holiday cards featuring photos of holiday tackiness – a kitschy homemade gift, holiday food disaster, gaudy decor, or over-the-top Christmas fashion. Entrants were encouraged to check out the Hallmark Contest Facebook page for tips on this contest.
Contestants submitted their creations in March. The 13 winning designs will be sold on Hallmark.com beginning May 7. In-store winners will be announced in July and will be featured in Hallmark Gold Crown® stores and Walmart stores for the 2012 holiday season. 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 or unique photos and writing that worked well together and could be sent to anyone. Participants could enter a total of three different cards.
This is Hallmark’s 32nd consumer-created card contest. The 13 winners are from 9 different states. Here are the winners in Hallmark’s “A Very Tacky Christmas” competition:
San Jose, Calif.
Defuniak Springs, Fla.
West Chester, Ohio
New Haven, Mich.
Also today, Hallmark announces the opening of the latest competition – “Thanks, Mom.” Consumers are invited to write a sweet, sincere, or funny letter, short story, or poem with the theme “Thanks, Mom” to your mom or someone who’s been like a mom to you. Winning submissions will be compiled into a book. Submissions will be accepted through May 20.
