OK. Hope this descrition of what the contest is about is understand able. It making a post card. Includes a picture and writing. So no artist has an advantage over another. The goal of the contest is who can convey the theme given to you so that the words along with the picture allows me to believe that I am there. You don't have to a beautiful artist, but the written part needs to be formatted so it can be read easily.
THEME: I am wanting to visit someone over the December holiday, but know nothing of how your town/city/village celebrates their holiday season or you. Your going to Make me a postcard, You need to entice me with a description and a picture. Don't care if cartoon, fantasy picture, as long as the idea is real. If you want to have you as a mermaid or barbarian go for it. If you want you to be represented by an Antrho, go for it, But the holiday theme must be present in that picture. And it needs to represent where you live. Use the address on the sample or it may not come to me. Before you say you can't participate, look at the examples. All you need to do is seduce me into coming there for the holidays with both words and art.
The contest will be judged on both, not just one. Besides if you don't know how your town celebrates, google it. Darn it can't be that hard. Everything you want to know can be found on the internet, even the color of your socks you have on, if you know how to search. So come on don't give up before you start, that is just a cop out. Really want this contest to be unique and different.Any questions please ask

It has come to my attention that some people may not understand how to do this so have made three templates that you can use. One is adobe, one is png, the other is corel photo paint. Most of you use a graphic program. If not download one of these templates and use it then scan in the whole works. first one is corel photo paint, you just have to download it from my sta.sh from the link, no thumb sorry
