Graceful Envelope Contest
The Washington Calligraphers Guild announces the Call for Entries for the 23nd annual Graceful Envelope Contest, conducted in partnership with the National Association of Letter Carriers. The contest is open to all ages, with separate categories for children. There is no entry fee.

This year’s theme—Pushing The Envelope—embraces two concepts at the heart of the Graceful Envelope Contest. The first encourages you to “push the envelope” by finding new ways to use hand lettering, graphic design and postage stamps to enhance your entry. It may be a small canvas, but you are capable of big ideas.

The Graceful Envelope Contest also celebrates the significance of writing, sending and receiving letters. So your entry should “push the envelope” by promoting the exchange of letters. Deadline for entering is Monday, March 27, 2017.
