Graceful Envelope Contest
Every year the Washington Calligraphers Guild holds a Graceful Envelope Contest. There is currently a call for entries for the 2011 contest. The theme for the 2011 contest is “Time Flies”. All entries must be posted by April 30, 2011. This contest is open to all calligraphers.
Our guild has just finished a year of making decorated envelopes and exchanging them within the group. These have been a lot of fun and we now have a group of people experienced in creating beautiful envelopes. In honor of the Graceful Envelope Contest the Peninsula Scribes guild is holding our own Graceful Envelope Contest. Everyone in the guild is asked to bring an envelope to the April meeting (April 8th) that is designed as they would do for the Graceful Envelope Contest. Everyone is encouraged to then send their entry to the Washington Calligraphers Guild.
More details about the contest are available at the Graceful Envelope Contest site.
At this site you can see the winning entries from previous years. They are very inspiring.
