It’s time to VOTE for your favorite sticker and ticket designs. You can vote for as many as you like on the forms, be sure and vote for both contests. This is a blind vote so even if you know who the artist is, please don’t say so, voting should be based on the artwork alone.

If you have any trouble voting, let us know. Let the voting commence!

Tickets and Stickers are part of our yearly gifts to the community and are featured prominently in people’s pictures, homes, cars, notebooks, and memories.

*Please note* for fairness all voting will be blind, and the public will not know the submitting artist. All artists should refrain from posting publicly which submission is theirs. Any artist found promoting their contest entry may have their entry disqualified. This design contest is based on the works submitted, not the popularity of the artist.
