Make a Christmas Card, and you can win a $50 Gift Card

Christmas is my favorite festival. It has certain magical feel to it. This year, it is going to be even more special, because we have 2 more hilarious, lovely people to share our joy with, not to mention over 16,000 of you to celebrate it with.

So naturally, I was excited when Fred suggested that we have a contest on this in our forums. So here we go.

What you need to do?

Simple. Make a Christmas greeting card (or any of your favorite festival’s greeting card) using Excel.

How to submit your greeting card for the contest?

Just upload your card to a public file sharing site like skydrive. Or, email it to me with the subject “Christmas Card Contest”. My address is chandoo.d @

What will you get?

You will get a $50 Amazon gift card if your entry is selected as a winner. I have 2 gift cards to giveaway.

Rules & Fine Print:

  • Contest is closes on 13th December Midnight Pacific Time.
  • You can submit multiple entries.
  • Make flashy, jazzy cards using animation, chart effects, cell formatting or whatever fun thing you want.
  • Your contest entries will be posted on for anyone to download and play with.
  • Winners will be selected by me. (I would love to have a poll, but I also want to send the gift card before Christmas. And polls take time, so…)
  • Go!
