Art Design Contest ($300) for 2012 Greeting Card Fundraiser

The Phoenix Club of Nashville, a local non-profit that supports the Boys and Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, is currently seeking artists to participate in our annual holiday greeting card fundraiser. This campaign relies on donated work from local artists that capture the spirit of the holiday and/or our city. 100% of the proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee.

Last year’s campaign raised over $50,000. In addition to supporting a worthy cause, our artists receive favorable publicity and exposure. Each card will have the particular artist's citation (logo, website, trademark, company or school) as they want it to appear. In addition, the artists' work will be displayed on our website, which shall include the citation and an artist's bio. The artist will receive visibility with the clients and friends of our charitable customers (leading corporations, banks, and marketing, public relations, and law firms). We typically sell 30,000 to 40,000 units per year.                                                                                                                                     

If you are interested, please submit your artwork to me by January 31, 2012 at jtmeador12(at)hotmail(dot)com. Let me know if you have any interest or questions.
