On The Cards

Yesterday we presented our On The Cards winners with their prizes at this years Progressive Greetings Live. The On the Cards competition has had sponsors from all over the Greeting Card industry, G.F.Smith, Paperchase, Sherwood Press, Greeting Card Association, House of Illustration and Progressive Greetings Magazine.

The winners travelled down to London to be shown around PG Live, receive their prizes and also talk through the next stage of the development of their designs.

Here's Victoria from Nottingham Trent University receiving her award from Mark at G.F.Smith & Reggie at Paper Rose. She won the Design and Illustration category for her slightly rude pun cards.

 Here's Danielle from DeMontfort University receiving her award for the Technology category for her range of "Selfie" inspired cards.

And finally here is Lucy from Nottingham Trent University receiving her award for Format and Technology for her "Dot-to-Dot Stitch" inspired cards

And finally here are all of our winners with Paperchase, Paper Rose & G.F.Smith.

A massive thank you to G.F.Smith & Progressive Greetings for showcasing the designs in the Lounge.

Well done to all who took part and here's to next years competition!
