Smithsonian Winter Card Contest

The Smithsonian is an inspiring place, full of talented and creative people. Here’s your chance to share a bit of the wonder of working here with our friends and colleagues across the globe.

Secretary David Skorton and Dr. Robin Davisson are asking the Smithsonian community for help in designing the traditional Smithsonian winter greeting card. Be creative and use your imagination to capture the essence of the Smithsonian in an artwork, animation, photograph, or song that can be transformed into an e-card. Submit your own design or team up with your colleagues. A panel of staff judges will help the Secretary and Dr. Davisson identify the best designs from which to choose.
The creators of the selected design will be credited on the card and will be invited to discuss their design at a special event with the Secretary and Dr. Davisson.

Everyone in the Smithsonian community is encouraged to participate and all submissions are welcome, with one proviso: We’ve all seen pictures of the Castle in the snow. Dare to be different!

Please submit your original design or composition as a digital file to no later than Oct. 13.

Submissions should be high resolution, and files should be no more than 10 MB in size.
