If you’re an aspiring artist aged 14 and under, now’s your chance (the operative word being NOW) to show off your creative chops and help less fortunate kids around the world. An annual tradition since 1992, Pier 1 Import is again teaming up with UNICEF for the granddaddy of all greeting card contests.
All budding artists need to submit their original artwork - inspired by the theme “Peace on Earth” – by MAIL, and the deadline for entries is this FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4. You can download an entry form here or pick one up from your local Pier 1 store.
Once you’ve completed your masterpiece, mail it (don’t forget postage) to:
Pier 1/ UNICEF Greeting Card Contest
Pier 1 Imports 100 Pier 1 Place
Fort Worth, TX 76102
The winning design will be printed as an official UNICEF holiday card - sold at Pier 1 Imports' stores nationwide - with 100 percent of all proceeds going to the US Fund for UNICEF. The winning artist will receive a $5,000 scholarship and his or her school will pocket $500 worth of art supplies.
Don't just sit there - get on with it!
