Louies deadline extended

International card awards now open through to January 18


THE deadline for entering the 2019 Louie Awards has been extended to next Friday, January 18.

The America GCA run the International Greeting Card Awards Competition, otherwise known as the Louies, with 32 categories in five sectors, Greeting Card Occasions, Seasonal Greeting Cards, Card Sets, Special Categories, Invitations & Personalised Cards, with most categories divided into two price points.
The finalists will be announced in mid-February, with the winners revealed at the Louies celebration on May 19, after the opening day of the US GCA’s new three-day greetings card trade show at the Brooklyn Expo Center.
This is the 30th annual competition, and recent years have seen a number of Brit winners. Ohh Deer picked up two of the 2018 gongs, the second year running they’ve done the double, with Laura Darrington Designs being a 2018 finalist having won in 2017.
Entries should be made online here and will be judged by a panel of industry experts which include publishers, suppliers, media, buyers and others active within the industry – the criteria include originality, impact, design excellence, sendability, and value.
