Your talent will be nationally recognized through our annual catalog, promotional materials, CourageCards.org and various advertising platforms including social media and print. Importantly, you retain full ownership and copyright of your artwork.

While many of our artists are individuals with disabilities, we welcome artists of all ages and abilities to participate. From concept to creation, all Courage Cards are proudly made in the USA.

Submission Guidelines
Courage Kenny Cards primarily focus on Thanksgiving and Christmas designs, as these cards are typically sent by businesses to their clients and customers. We accept art in various styles, including traditional, graphic, contemporary, and photography.

Entry requirements
All artworks must be solely created by the artist. Each artist is limited to submit a maximum of ten entries for review. Please ensure that you submit your entries through our online application site -callforentry.org.

Selection notifications will be sent to all artists via email through the application site. If your work is chosen, you will receive a licensing fee of $400 for each selected piece. As a Courage Card artist, you retain complete ownership and copyright of your art. We request exclusive rights to reproduce and distribute your artwork as cards for a period of five years. Each printed card will feature your name, the work's title, and a copyright notification on the back. Additionally, your artist profile will be showcased on CourageCards.org.
