Tandy’s leather trading card competition is back!
Several years ago, Tandy hosted leather trading card competitions where artists of all ages would submit their work and the winner would be chosen by Tandy’s expert leathercrafters. This time, we’re giving artists a chance to influence their chances to win!
Follow these 5 steps for 16 chances to win!
Step 1: Design your own custom leather trading card! Eligible entries should be 2 ½” x 3 ½ ” (64mm x 89mm) of 3/4 oz Veg.-Tanned Leather and can be carved, tooled, stamped, painted and/or dyed. All entries must be original art.
Step 2 (Optional): Post a picture with you and your card on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram to be entered to win a unique artist trading card by legendary artist Jim Linnell, Charlie Davenport or George Hurst! Post your photo online and tag @tandyleather, use the hashtag #leathertradingcard, and tag 3 friends in your post! We will choose one winner at random from each Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to receive one of these one-of-a-kind cards!
Step 3: Mail your card and a signed copy of the form below to Tandy Leather Factory, ATTN: Social, 1900 SE Loop 820, Fort Worth, TX 76140! All entries received by August 15
will be scanned and put on Facebook for on-line voting. There is no limit to the number of entries submitted! After the competition, all of the trading cards will be added to Tandy’s Artist Trading Card Archive.
Step 4: VOTE! When all of the entries are posted on Facebook, share your picture with family, friends, enemies, acquaintances, your middle school art teacher and anyone else who will help you get to the final round!
At 10:00AM on September 8th, the 10 pictures with the most likes, shares and commenters (only one comment per user will be counted in voting) will go on to our final round to be judged by our panel of expert leathercrafters! Leather Trading Cards will be judged on style, technique and originality. All 10 finalists will also receive Tandy Swag and a month subscription to the LeathercraftLibrary.com Premium Instructional Videos!
Step 5: Visit this page on September 12th at 3 PM to discover the winners! The 1st place winner will receive a $100 gift card, our 2nd place winner will receive a $50 gift card and our 3rd place winner will receive a $25 gift card!
