The illustrator Edward Gorey was quite the mail artist in his time. In his honor, the Edward Gorey House hosts an annual mail art contest.
The contest is now open for submissions from artists of all ages from around the world. Submit your original envelope artwork postmarked no later than October 24th, 2016. There is no entry fee though artists can only submit one entry to the contest per year. Prizes will be awarded in five different age groups. Winners will be notified by October 31st, 2016.
Decorate an envelope (of any size you choose) with your Edward Gorey-esque Halloween themed image(s)—with the Edward Gorey House address clearly visible on the front—and mail it to this address:
Edward Gorey House
8 Strawberry Lane
Yarmouth Port, MA 02675
Maybe you could work on your entry at our upcoming Halloween Mail Art Party!
