For the Graphic Design Contest this week, we want our users to design their very own Travel PostCards. Combine photography, drawing tools, text, and effects to create a postcard that captures the essence of its location, and makes the receiver long to hop on a plane and fly over to see the real thing.

Postcards have long been a staple of traveling. They are the modern version of a message in a bottle, a brief note sent across thousands of miles of fields, mountains, and sea, with a window into a far and distant land. Travel Postcards should be beautiful, and more importantly they should capture something special about the land they portray that inspires dreams in the person receiving them. To make sure your postcard is complete, don’t forget to add a tag line of text. Keep it short and sweet: a single sentence that says everything that needs to be said.

Find a photo from your own travels or of your hometown, and use PicsArt to create the ultimate travel postcard.
