Winter Card Contest

Cuyahoga DD invites individuals with developmental disabilities who live in Cuyahoga County to help with the design of our annual holiday greeting! We are looking for artwork that depicts winter and/or the holiday season that we can use on greeting cards and electronic greetings for individuals and families we serve as well as our community partners. The winning artist will win $100, and a short artist’s biography will be included anywhere their art is used. Get out those paints, pencils, markers, or cameras and THINK WINTER!

Here are the rules:

  • Create your entry on 8.5 x 11 to 11 x 17 paper, or send in a photograph.
  • Please do not represent any one holiday. Stick with winter scenes or symbols that represent the season or create an abstract, colorful design.
  • Attach the artist’s information form carefully to the back of the art or include artist information in email.
