Warrens Cranberry Festival 2014 Pictorial Cancellation Contest

The Warrens Cranberry Festival is currently accepting entries for the Pictorial Cancellation Contest.  Design the official postmark for this year's Festival!

The size of the artwork should be no larger than 3" x 1 1/2".  This prevents the cancellation mark from covering too much area on the article to be cancelled.  Artwork must be camera ready, black ink, slick paper or on plain white bond paper.  Lettering must be typewritten, mechanically produced or professionally hand lettered.  This will ensure the hand stamp manufacturer to produce a quality hand stamp.

Design must include:  Name of the event followed by the word station or sta., Warrens, WI 54666, September 26, 2014 or 26 September 2014 and the theme must pertain to cranberries or the Festival.

Entries are due by July 31, 2014.  The winner will be awarded a $25 cash prize, sponsored by the Warrens Cranberry Festival.

Here is last year's winning design, if an example is desired.
