The Iconic Holiday Hen Contest is ON! Deadline before November 16th

November 15, 2016 by Erzsi Deak

It’s holiday time (you’ve noted the bells and fake snow where you live? Maybe you have real snow? Even real bells?), so I hope you are in the mood to create the ULTIMATE Iconic Holiday Hen!

I love what’s been submitted thus far and look forward to a terrific selection!

Here’s the gist:

If you are an illustrator and would like to submit your Iconic Holiday Hen illustration to be used as the Hen&ink Holiday Mascot, please send to submissions @ [agency name] . com before Wednesday, November 16th. The chosen Hen will spread holiday cheer throughout the publishing world (with the artist’s name intact!) and its creator will be invited to her/his very own Open Coop Iconic Hen Day (i.e., he/she will be invited to present a portfolio or a project for our consideration). We’ve had some fabulous Hens in the past and can’t wait to seeing what 2016 version! Remember the submissions need to be received before November 16, 2016!

Thank you!

    1. Hi. Yes, picture the proverbial headless chicken and that would be me. And yes, the Iconic Holiday Hen is with Hen&ink’s logo hen. Sorry I’m seeing your messages so late. This is an annual contest, so I hope you’ll think about submitting next year.
