Iwith.org greetings cards competition: opening!


From the Iwith.org portal, your designs will be used to create virtual Christmas cards that will be sent all over the world. The initiative is guaranteed by the massive success of our previous competitions.

Think you’ve got a creative spark for designing Christmas cards? Want to show off your skills?

Then you’re in the right place! Iwith.org has launched its digital Christmas card contest. Send in your designs and we’ll make sure that they electronically circle the globe in aid of a good cause.

Competitors from previous competitions have entered more than 7,000 designs to the Iwith.org portal, which have been sent to more than 100,000 websites. Imagine the exposure your work could have if you enter a Christmas card design. In addition, the winner will be interviewed and the report will be published on our website.


Requirements of competition

Candidates without age or residence limit are invited to participate, sending a maximum of 3 original and new designs, non awarded in other competitions. Iwith.org doesn’t take responsibility of the veracity of the data: the authors that present their card to the competition are the only responsible for its authenticity and originality.
