The Picture Perfect Holiday Photo Contest

happy-holidays-photo-card-blog
Everyone’s eyes were open, no one thought bunny ears would be funny and the sun hung at the perfect height in the sky. All the (metaphorical) stars aligned for the perfect family photo, and you’ve been anxious to send it to all of your friends and family ever since – in the form of a holiday photo card, of course.

Crane & Co. knows that feeling – when everything, you know, clicks. Which is why we launched a new collection of digital holiday photo cards that inspires the same bespoke luxury Crane & Co. is known for. The designs will make you feel warmer than a slice of just-out-of-the-oven pecan pie, and, they’re all on a thick, matte-finish private label paper that’s simply stunning.

It’s all very exciting. So exciting that we’re hosting the Picture Perfect Holiday Photo Contest. Entering is oh-so easy: Just email your perfect photo – the one you would love to see on your holiday photo cards this year – to photocontest@crane.com and our panel of esteemed judges will choose their favorite.

One lucky winner will receive 100 complimentary digital holiday photo cards (your design choice, of course). No need to say cheese, we think you’re smiling already.

What’s the criteria, you ask?

Your photo has to be appropriate for a holiday photo card. We thought it was a beautiful sunset, too, but we think grandma would rather see her granddaughter.

Your photo should be 1275 X 1785 pixels and in .jpg form.

You must be 18 years of age to enter.

One photo per person, please.

Please include a short (2-4 sentences) background story about your photo. Yes, your family is beautiful, but we want to know why you’re all wearing wet suits.

There’s more, which is all below in our Terms & Conditions. Pour a cup of tea and dive in.

Terms & Conditions
