The design will form part of Carte Blanche Greetings, Wishing Well Studios branded offer with the 1st place winner seeing their card published. The winner will also receive £200 worth of Amazon vouchers and the chance to join the talented illustrators and designers at Carte Balance in their West Sussex studio for some work experience. Carte Blanche are also offering prizes of Amazon Vouchers and published designs for 2nd and 3rd Place winners.
 
Marketing Manager Grace Elphinstone says “The greetings card industry is a real hotbed for creative talent and the UK has a fantastic culture of giving and receiving cards, with it still being a 1.7 billion a year industry. 18-34-year olds buy more cards than any other generation which is a positive trend for the future. It’s fantastic to work with local education providers to give their students an opportunity to learn more about our company and brands and to provide opportunities for talented people to develop an interest and career within the flourishing greetings card industry”
