In fifth grade I won a Christmas greeting card contest. I don’t remember what I drew, but I sketched something with my crayons and a week later I was called to the art teacher’s office to take a photo with my nice big trophy. I beat out all the other kids in the school district, including Jennifer, who was the most talented artist in my class. It was nice revenge because Jennifer had recently won the Young Author’s contest with her picture book. I had written a 20-page tome about the forbidden friendship between a fox and a bunny rabbit and won bupkis. I like to think the universe got its wires crossed and I ended up with her art trophy and she ended up with a certificate or plaque or whatever they gave the Young Author’s winner.
If you too have a desire to design greeting cards, you should enter Hallmark’s your Greeting Card Competition. They won’t give you a trophy, but they will give you $250 if you are one of the ten finalists. […]
