We can't wait to see the designs you have put together for this contest. The following steps outline everything that you need to do to make sure that your submission is considered for the competition!

1) Design Your Submission

The judges will be looking for cards that encourage an “Attitude of Gratitude” within the work place. Some technical requirements for all images are:

If you're struggling for a starting place think of a recent occasion at work were some appreciation was well deserved but never got shared. What kind of card could have been used as a starting point to express that message?

2) Email Your Submission to

After you’ve created your amazing designs you need to make sure you get them to us in the right format. Every submission should be sent as a separate email (you can submit as many as you’d like) and each submission needs to include:

  • Your full name

  • 1-3 prose suggestions for the inside of the card
  • The company you work for
  • Your shipping address (In case you're a winner!)

3) The Judging Begins on Sept. 5th!
