Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
Hallmark today announces the winners in its recent card-creation contest, “Kids & Critters”. Greeting card hopefuls were invited to use original photography and writing to create fun, sweet, or silly “Birthday” and “Just for Fun” greeting cards that combine two of the cutest things on earth – kids and pets.
Contestants submitted their creations in February. The 12 winning designs will be sold on Hallmark.com starting today. In-store winners will be announced and featured in Hallmark Gold Crown stores in July. 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 people. Participants could enter a total of two cards. Entrants were encouraged to check out the Hallmark Contest Facebook page for tips on this contest.
This is Hallmark’s 41st consumer-created card contest. The 12 winners are from 11 different U.S. states. Here are the winners in Hallmark’s “Kids & Critters” competition:
West Bloomfield, Mich.
San Jose, Calif.
