Picaboo’s Holiday Card Challenge

Whether you are a designer by trade, passionate about it as a hobby, or a beginner just getting your feet wet – we want you! Picaboo is extremely excited to announce its first ever Holiday Card Challenge! We realize August is a little early to start thinking about the holidays, but we’re offering plenty of incentive as we turn to you, our wonderful and talented fans, to help us revamp our card collection.  No background in design? You’ll play a part too as it will be on our fans to not only create the designs, but to pick the winners as well! With more than $4,500 in prizes, commission on sales, and the chance to put your best work on display – there’s a lot on the line.

How do I participate?

Designers: Follow this link to download your submission kit. All designs need to be submitted by 11:00 pm PST on August 11th to be entered for a chance at a piece of the $4,500 in prize money. There is no limit on the number of submissions per designer so get to work!

Here is a list of the design requirements:

  • Use the card templates provided in the submission kit

  • Use any font that you have the rights to, but all text that’s customizable (eg. “From the Johnsons”) must use one of Picaboo’s

  • Use any of the stock photos included in the submission kit for your design

  • Create your design using only CMYK colors

  • The image you submit to the challenge must be a .JPG, .PNG, or .GIF less than 1MB in file size

  • There is no limit on number of submissions per designer

  • Winning designs must be submitted in Illustrator format



Picaboo is so excited to see what you guys come up with! We are working together to create a 2013 holiday card collection unlike any other – a collection by you, for you.  The Holiday Card Challenge is the perfect opportunity for designers of all shapes and sizes to share their work with the world and be rewarded handsomely for it. Now get busy!
