Card Contest Winners

Rainna Langley has been awarded $1,000 from Discover Card for the first “Discover Student Card” design contest for social media. The online contest provided two ways for Discover fans to participate in the card design creative process. First, users created and shared original artwork through the Discover Facebook page. The highly interactive application enabled Discover fans and visitors to easily draw their designs on a widget with a Discover card graphic overlay that resembled a real credit card. Second, Discover fans and visitors voted on their favorite designs. The social media contest received approximately 6,700 card design entries and over 200,000 votes. The grand prize winning design will be featured on the next Discover Student card, which is slated to debut in April. Langley won the top prize for her cassette tape-themed artwork. Lauren Snyder received $500 for her space-themed card design, and third place recipient, John Bell, was awarded $250 for his dollar bill card design. Honorable mentions included card designs by Aoki Duank, Glen Donaldson, John Quinton, and Omnia Mostafa Tawakol. They each received a $50 Discover gift card.
