MIT holiday greeting contest: submit your idea!

We’d like to pass along this announcement from the MIT Alumni Association about a holiday greeting design contest.
Anyone from the MIT community is eligible, and there are cash prizes of $1000 and $500…not to mention the chance to show off your creativity to the entire MIT community.:

MIT students and community members:

The holiday season may feel far away, but the MIT Alumni Association is already scheming–and looking for help. As of today, the Association is issuing a call for proposals for the 2010 MIT electronic holiday greeting. Those who can channel the Institute’s brilliance, creativity, and distinctive quirkiness are encouraged to participate.

About the Greeting

The 2010 holiday greeting will be electronic, like last year’s. It will be sent by MIT President Susan Hockfield and the Alumni Association to an audience of some 150,000 students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and friends.


MIT students or other community members may participate. Contestants may work individually or in teams.


Cash prizes of $1,000 and $500 will be awarded to the winner and runner up, respectively. The winner will also receive credit, wide exposure, and the opportunity to have his or her work viewed and approved by President Hockfield.
For details about the contest, including criteria, deadlines, and how to enter, visit
Good luck to the contestants!
