The Best of the Edward Gorey Envelope Art Contest



...

The Edward Gorey House, a beloved Cape Cod residence turned museum, has been keeping the tradition alive with its annual Halloween Envelope Art Contest.

Competitors of all ages vie for the opportunity to have their winning (and runners up and “very-close-to-being-runners-up”) Gorey-inspired entries displayed in the Gorey House and its digital extensions.

2019’s theme is the highly evocative “Uncomfortable Creatures” … and depending on the speed with which you can execute a brilliant idea and deliver it to the post office, you may still have a shot—entries must be postmarked by Monday, October 21, with winners to be announced on Halloween.

2. These capture the Gorey spirit quite well - ghoulish yet whimsical

It's lovely that all these kids (who've presumably survived bear assaults, ennui, drains, and the other perils that might vanquish a young person) are paying tribute to Edward Gorey, and doing it so well!
