VIVO Masks is one of the largest masquerade mask retailers in the world.

The art of masquerade and mask building is on the cusp of being forgotten and we want to give it a breath of life by working with talented artists to create new designs.

Got an idea? Show us your best, and you could win a $1,000 scholarship. You will have the opportunity to have your winning design will have produced in the U.S. and featured on VIVO Masks. You will retain full ownership and credit for the design and it's your choice if you want to have it produced. 

With the permission of the designer, all submissions will be displayed on our contest wrap up and promoted on social media.

The winner will be decided before April 30th 2020. Submissions deadline is Wednesday March 25th 2020 (Mardi Gras).

Designers retain ownership of their designs unless they explicitly agree to a sale with VIVO Masks. Winning designer will receive a $1000 prize from VIVO Masks and will have the option to have their design produced and sold on VIVO Masks.
