The 2012 Graceful Envelope Contest

Posted on: 15 Feb 2012

Entry deadline: April 30, 2012 
Please read all of the information below if you are interested.

Calligraphers everywhere are invited to participate in the 2012 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. There is no entry fee.
This year’s theme, “D-liver D-letter D-sooner D-better,” — The letter D.
With that letter in mind, your challenge is to create a Graceful Envelope around anything that begins with D. You could choose Daisies or Dragons, Dentistry or Dancing, Dreaming or Discoveries – any “D” word your heart D-sires.

The postmark deadline is Monday, April 30, 2012.
Address the envelope artistically to:
