President's Holiday Card Design Contest

September 1, 2022

Dear Carolina students,

We would like to showcase the creativity, talent and spirit of University of South Carolina students on our 2022 holiday greeting card. Current students from any USC campus are invited to submit their ideas for the cover art on the card we will send this December to 4,500 recipients, including our university community, alumni, donors and friends. 

Three winners will be selected - one grand prize of $500, and two runner-up prizes of $250 - and the grand-prize artist will have their art featured on the front of the card and be credited on the back of the card. The three winners will be invited to the President's House for a special recognition.

Your original artwork should depict one or more of these themes: USC life; South Carolina; winter; or triumph over challenges. You get to decide how best to illustrate our Carolina winter break spirit.

Full contest details can be found on the Holiday Card Design Contest website. The deadline to submit your original artwork is Monday, Oct. 10, 2022. Good luck! 

President Michael Amiridis and First Lady Ero Aggelopoulou-Amiridis
