Start 2013 with the Graceful Envelope Contest!

Dear Members and Followers,

Recently found, so you may be interested in it.

As you begin 2013 with new projects and renewed creativity, you are
invited to deliver your artistic vision -- on an envelope!

That's the challenge of the Graceful Envelope Contest, conducted by
the Washington (DC) Calligraphers Guild and the National Association
of Letter Carriers. There is no entry fee.

The 2013 theme, A World of Change, asks calligraphers to create a
Graceful Envelope that represents some change from the past or a kind
of change you might like to see in the future. Winners will be chosen
based on artistic hand lettering, creative interpretation of the theme
and effective use of color and design, including incorporation of
postage stamp(s).

Visit http://www.calligra phersguild. org/ for contest rules and to see
past winning envelopes. The deadline is Monday, February 26.

Happy lettering!

Lorraine Swerdloff
Contest coordinator for the Washington Calligraphers Guild
