2020 Graceful Envelope Contest Call for Entries

This year's theme: Double Vision

Deadline is 2021 [date will be announced]

Transform an ordinary envelope into a work of art! The 2020 theme is inspired by the year itself. Only once a century does the year double up! On an envelope, capture something that’s double—whatever you see in your personal Double Vision. Make sure your submission reflects the artistic hand lettering and imaginative use of color and design that have been the hallmarks of the contest. And, of course, incorporate postage stamp(s) into your creation.
