Design a Holiday Greeting Card for Our $10,000 Contest!

October 1, 2009

If you’re a graphic designer who starts planning for the holidays in the summer, then ’tis the season for PsPrint’s $10,000 Holiday Card Contest! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Festivus – for the rest of us! – PsPrint’s $10,000 Holiday Card Contest is open to graphic designers, students, PsPrint fans and customers.

Designers: This is your chance to whip up a winning holiday design rather than settle for the ho-hum boxes at the store. And did we mention the chance for a share of $10,000 in prizes and printing services? PsPrint will post all contestants’ greeting card designs on our Web site, where customers will be able to vote for their favorites. And you can get in on the competition, too, as we encourage you to advocate for your own design – urge your friends to vote for you! Facebook your entry! Tweet it! In other words, find as many ways possible to link back to your entry. Prizes will be awarded in two categories: Best Design and Most Humorous. That’s right; you can submit as many as 15 design entries in two categories, just in case your mind is brimming with ideas. Start thinking of your holiday card design now, because beginning Oct. 15 contestants will be permitted to submit their images for holiday greeting cards. Your design will then be showcased on our PsPrint's blog site along with those of other contestants, and online voting will commence. Contestants may submit holiday card entries through Oct. 30. Finalist voting will begin a few days later, on Nov. 2, and will continue through Nov. 16. Winners will be announced on Nov. 18. Each grand prize winner will receive a $2,000 gift card from Apple, HP or Amazon, plus free printing of 1,000 greeting cards. Runner-up winners will receive $200 gift cards and free printing of 250 copies of their cards. Any questions? Then check out the rules for PsPrint’s $10,000 Holiday Card Contest. Good luck!

Dear PsPrint,
Regarding the judging of the contest, may I suggest having a panel of judges to vote on the final cards? At least this way, there is a sense of fairness in voting for the winning card rather than relying on a popularity vote.

Thanks for your interest in our contest! We decided to go with a popular vote by our customers because we want to encourage entrants to promote their design as well as trust the general public to vote. Anyone can promote any entry, so that helps to level the playing field.

On the flip-side, we at PsPrint will decide upon the winner of the grand prize -- that counts as a panel of judges, right?
