The top three winners of the "Discover Works of Art, Acts of Charity" card design contest were recently announced - Marcus David Martinez, Rainna Langley and Danielle Kasony - for their patriotic creations.

"The Discover Works of Art, Acts of Charity contest enabled Discover fans and artists to share in the creation of a new patriotic-themed card design in an easy, fun and interactive way," said Sanjay Gosalia, director of acquisition at Discover. "Not only did we receive great artwork with enthusiastic voter participation, the designs uploaded and votes cast helped benefit our military servicemen, servicewomen and families in need."
Creations from various people - with design degrees or without - flooded in to enter the contest. Discover donated $1 for every eligible entry uploaded, $1 for every 10 eligible votes that were cast, and $20 for every card account that was applied from the contest site.
