Hallmark is accepting entries for their teen line of cards, particularly birthday.
Create a card for a teen's birthday. It can be to a girl or a guy or one that works for both. Use photography, drawings or graphic design. Just make sure its a funny birthday card for someone 14-18 years old; applicable to many people; and cohesive (writing and images work well together).
You could win $250 and publication in the Hallmark line online. You could earn $250 more if they decide to distribute your card in stores nationwide.
Deadline August 22, 2010. Winners selected by August 31, 2010. Nationwide announcement made in October. Cards would be available in stores June 2011.
NOTE: If you are a YA author, this is a fantastic way to get your name known. Gives you a good chance to practice your YA speaking skills, too. AND . . . if opens doors to Hallmark for future card assignments.
DOUBLE NOTE: Hallelujah . . . my son graduated from Clemson University this weekend . . . no more children in college . . . time is my own for writing. Oh my gosh, I'm stunned. Don't know where to start first.
