graceful envelope contest
- Calligraphers and artists from around the world are invited to participate
in the 11th annual Graceful Envelope Contest, conducted by the Washington
(DC) Calligraphers Guild under the sponsorship of the National Association
of Letter Carriers. The contest is open to all ages, with two separate
categories for children.
This year's theme is ANYTHING BEGINNING WITH P. "P" is for post office,
penguins, peaches and so much more... so give P's a chance as you design an
artistic envelope around anything that begins with the letter "P." The
deadline for entries is Monday, April 18, 2005. There is no entry fee.
Entrants are encouraged to incorporate the theme in a creative and artistic
way while using hand-executed calligraphy or fine lettering to address the
envelope. Inventive relationships between the postage stamp(s) used and the
envelope design are also encouraged.
