DODGEVILLE, Wis., Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The leaves are falling, soon the snow will be flying – and that means the holidays are in the air. Just in time for the gifting season, Lands' End today announced its first e-Gift Card Art Contest where three talented winners will have their holiday-themed art made into an e-Gift Card, plus win $500. The most popular e-Gift Card Design from the three will be the grand prize winner, winning a $1,000 Lands' End Gift Card for themselves plus $1,000 for a charity of his or her choice. The official entry form can be downloaded now at www.landsend.com/eGiftCardArtContest. The contest runs through Oct. 22.
"Gift cards and e-Gift Cards are a 'can't miss' holiday gift – but we also know some gift card givers want to make their gift card a bit more personal. That's why we offer a host of artwork options for e-Gift cards along with new enhancements this fall such as uploading an image, recording an audio message or selecting e-Gift cards that include animation and video," said Mike Holahan, vice president multi-channel marketing, Lands' End. "We look forward to seeing all the holiday art submissions from all the talented artists out there and selecting one winner for the newest e-Gift Card design."
Calling All Artists
The e-Gift Cards Art Contest is open to U.S. residents ages 18 and older beginning Oct. 1. Lands' End recommends all artwork be designed and submitted horizontally on an 8 ½" x 11" single piece of paper or via email with digital resolution no less than 72dpi and no more than a two megabyte file size. Winning artwork will be transferred to a Lands' End e-Gift Card with dimensions of 3.375" x 2.125".
Three first-prize winners will be selected in three art categories: hand-drawn or painted art, photograph and digital image. Each will receive a $500 Lands' End Gift Card and have his or her artwork made into an eGift Card. From there, the most popular design will be selected as the grand prize winner to receive a $1,000 Lands' End Gift Card and $1,000 for a charity of the winner's choice.
Whether customers shop last minute or late at night from their phone, tablet or home computer, Lands' End e-Gift Cards always fit, will never lose value and will never expire. E-Gift Cards are available for order at landsend.com and are sent via e-mail & text. An e-Gift Card generally arrives in the recipient's inbox within a few minutes.
A Lands' End e-Gift Card can be applied to any Lands' End purchase, including all merchandise, shipping charges, taxes or special services like monogramming and gift boxing.
