{DESIGN CHALLENGE} Design a Birthday Card and Win $100 from Amazon and an HP Officejet 7500A Printer

by Jillian Leslie on

We've come up with a new Design Challenge... We're giving away $300 in Amazon gift certificates and an HP Officejet 7500A printer. Plus your design could end up on the HP Facebook page and in the HP Newsgram newsletter!

We'd like you to design the front of a BIRTHDAY CARD --  an all-purpose card that someone would download, print out, and send to their friend or relative on their birthday!

All you need to enter is a little creativity and a photograph. That's right, the birthday card you create must include at least one photo. It can be a photo of a birthday hat, a cake, a foot... anything. We want to see how creative you can be with a photo.

Here's an example...

And wait, I didn't even tell you the coolest part... The most popular design will be featured as a free download on the HP Facebook page and in the HP Newsgram. If any company understands printing and printables, it's HP, so they're excited to see what our creative community can come up with!

Here are some other basic rules:

  • Each person may enter up to three birthday card designs
  • Card designs must be entered by 11:59pm (PDT) May 13th
  • We ask that you submit a JPG, PNG, or GIF of the front design of your card, and there will be space to type in any text for the inside of the card
  • The semi-final round will occur on the Catch My Party site from May 14th - May 20th, where our readers will vote for their favorite three designs
  • The three finalists will each receive $100 Amazon gift certificates
  • The final round of voting will be held on the HP Facebook page and in the HP Newsgram
  • The designer who creates the winning design will also receive an HP Officejet 7500A worth $199.99 provided by us, and will have their design be featured as a free download in the HP Newsgram and on the HP Facebook page
  • The winner will be notified by email and be required to sign a release for their design
  • All entrants must own the rights to the photo(s) they use
  • Entrants must be at least 18 years of age
  • This design challenge is sponsored and administered solely by Catch My Party
Happy designing!! We can't wait to see your cards!!

    What would be the benefit of having the design as a free download on the HP site if the photo is of someone else's child? Am I missing something?

    Chrissy you are uploading a template, the user should be able to replace the pic with their own

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. The goal is to use a photo in a creative way. It can be a photo of a party hat or a cake... anything. So it's not a template for someone to replace the pic with their own. It's about using a photo as part of your creativity.
