2023 Holiday Card Design Contest

September 5, 2023

Dear Carolina students,

The First Lady and I would like to showcase the creativity, talent and spirit of our University of South Carolina students on the cover of our 2023 holiday greeting card, which will be mailed in December to 5,000 recipients, including members of our university community, alumni, donors and friends.

Current students from any USC campus are invited to submit their designs for consideration in this contest.

We will select three designs that best illustrate the spirit of Carolina, using one or more of this year’s contest themes: USC life, South Carolina, winter, and college life. One grand-prize artist will receive $500 and have their design featured on the front of the holiday card and be credited on the back of the card. The two runner-up artists will each receive $250. Ero and I will also host all three winners at the President’s House for a special recognition of their designs.

Full contest details can be found on the Holiday Card Design Contest website. The deadline to submit your original artwork is midnight on Monday, Oct. 9, 2023.

Good luck!

President Michael Amiridis and First Lady Ero-Aggelopoulou Amiridis
