Make sure your contact information is on the submission (in case it gets separated from its envelope). If you want your submission returned, include a SASE.
Occasionally, we get similar ideas from more than one person. If you're submitting words, we pay the person who submits the idea first. If you submit artwok, it has to be an original design.
We regret that we're unable to confirm receipt of submissions over the phone. Electronic submission response time is quicker. The sooner you submit an idea, the better chance it has of appearing in the next Northern Sun catalog and on our website.
