Regardless of how you feel about Thanksgiving … who doesn’t like a good throwback hand turkey?
Since 2008, Rule29 Creative has been hosting its “By a Show of Hands” holiday hand turkey competition. Everyone from kids to adults to professional designers share their best birds for a shot at winning some Amazon gift cards.
“We always like to be in the practice of doing things that push us to be creative, and so we wanted to give others the chance to do so, too (and have a lot of fun at the same time, of course),” Rule29 says.
Entries are being accepted until Nov. 27, and winners will be announced Dec. 3. Visit Rule29 to download a hand turkey template, to vote on your favorites, and to submit your own fowl.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on 15 of our favorite hand turkeys. The bird is the word.
2014 Typography & Lettering Awards
Typography is one of the most vital keys to successful design—and Print’s all-new Typography & Lettering Awards is here to celebrate it. But this isn’t just a competition for classic type designers: We’re looking for projects that feature great uses of type by any designer. We’re looking for handlettered work. And, of course, we’re also looking for original typefaces built from the ground up.
Enter today for a chance to have your work judged by Paul Shaw and Jessica Hische, and for a chance to be featured in Print magazine, and more.
