Today, Hallmark announces the winners in its recent card-creation contest, “Celebrate Him.” Greeting card hopefuls were invited to use original photography or illustration and original writing to create a birthday card that could be sent to any man. Entries could be sweet, silly or funny.
Contestants submitted their creations in April. The 23 winning designs will be sold on Hallmark.com starting this year in July. In-store winners will be announced and featured in Kroger stores in June 2014. 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 or illustrations and writing that worked well together and could be sent to all types of men. Participants could enter a total of three cards. Entrants were encouraged to check out the Hallmark Contest Facebook page for tips on this contest.
