119453932 (1)by Ashley Wallace Jones Staff

Now that school is back in session, we know how focused you students are with classes and school work. That’s why when we saw a scholarship opportunity, that doesn’t require writing an essay we wanted to pass it along.

With a deadline of January 16, 2012, The 6th Annual Create-A-Greeting-Card $10,000 Scholarship Contest offers a chance to really show off your inner artist and also be entered to win a $10,000 scholarship.

Here are the rules:

Who’s eligible:
All high school, college and university students, who are enrolled at any time during the latter half of 2012, in an academic program designed to conclude with the awarding of a diploma or a degree and are between the ages of 14 and 35 years of age.

Original artwork only. Your entry can be digital images (Photoshop), original photographs, paintings, drawings or any other form your creation may take. Keep in mind, the final design will be produced in a 5 1/2″ x 7 7/8″ format. While you don’t need to submit your work in that exact size, it should be proportional to those dimensions. Entries should not exceed 16” x 23”.

Judging Criteria:
1. Aesthetic appeal
2. Quality
3. Creativity and Originality
4. Incorporation of design elements
5. Appropriateness for use as a greeting card
6. Attractiveness to The Gallery Collection’s corporate and consumer customers
7. Suitability as a design in Prudent’s Gallery Collection greeting card line

We wish you all the best of luck on the chance to win the 6th Annual Create-A-Greeting-Card $10,000 Scholarship Contest.
