Designers – get your entries ready! PsPrint’s latest design contest will award more than $15,000 in prizes and free printing to the best holiday card and poster calendar designs. Start thinking about design ideas now, because in one week, on Aug. 24, you’ll be able to start entering your images in six categories: For holiday card entries the categories are Best Design, Humor and three “local flavor” categories – designs inspired by one of the cities that PsPrint calls home – the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago and the East Coast. The last category focuses on Best Design for a poster calendar. Deadline for entry submissions is Sept. 7. Once we receive all the contest entries, we will post the designs in a gallery on our website, and voting will begin. Alert your friends to your entry – post on Facebook, pin it on Pinterest, tweet your design! Semi-finalist voting is Sept. 10-19, and finalist voting is Sept. 21-28. We will announce the winners on Oct. 3. Of course, you want to know all about our fabulous prizes. First through third place in each category will be determined by the designs that receive the most votes. Third place will receive a $100 gift card from Amazon, second place earns a $250 Amazon gift card, and the first-place design in each category receives a whopping $500 gift card to Amazon. A PsPrint panel of judges will deem one design for each category a Grand Prize winner, and they will each receive a $1,000 Amazon gift card. In addition, every winner will receive free printing of their winning designs. Want more information?
