Xmas banner

Competition extended till Week 4 - Last day to submit an entry on Sunday 12th November 2023

This year's theme is 'Festive Sweets and Treats.' Participate for a chance to win exciting prizes, get your artwork featured on our website, and have it printed on our end-of-year greeting cards!

Create an artwork about the festive sweets and treats that you enjoy over the holiday period. Think candy cane colours and stripes, gingerbread cookies and other delights! For example, you could choose to illustrate your favourite Christmas Pudding or family sweets that you love sharing over the holiday period. Think about what you love to eat and what traditions you look forward to during this time. Be creative!
