The National Retail Federation recently launched a contest that challenged participants to design a holiday card, which will be sent out to more than 20,000 NRF members worldwide. More than 130 designs have been submitted and 10 designs have been announced as finalists, seven of which were designed by current students at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Finalists include FIDM Merchandise Product Development Student Isaac Bevere (three designs), and FIDM Graphic Design Students Eileen Gano (two designs), Sara Berkes (one design), and Patrick Lee (one design).
Facebook users may vote for their favorite design up to three times per day through November 1, 2013. The top three winners chosen will receive $1,000 and a trip to New York to attend NRF’s Big Show in January. In addition, their name, photo, and college name will be on the back of the card.
