MAD’s Pop Up Greeting Card Competition

Running throughout the Easter Holiday – Sat 28th March until Mon 13th April 2015.

The Brief

For those creative individuals, whatever the age we  want to see your best MAD 3D  card. The winner will receive a goodie bag full of  MAD treats.

There are 2 rules:
1. It must have a 3D element and pop out of the page.
2. It must be related to The MAD Museum e.g include cogs, gears, buttons, robots and machines seen in the museum.

We are open to all ideas, your entry can be a photograph, drawing or cartoon. Use paper or card, make it big or small, use paints or pencils – the crafting possibilities are endless. In fact, the more weird and wonderful the better!
It is up to you how you design it, just make sure it has a mechanical MAD-esque theme and it is in some way 3D.
