Christmas Card Competition

 A Child’s Christmas 2020 –
Christmas Card Competition

We are delighted that once again we will be running our Christmas Card Competition with the winning design used for the electronic card that is sent to hundreds of businesses, organisations and individuals in the District.

This competition is open to all children in the Bradford District. Children are asked to represent the theme of

A Child’s Christmas in Photography, Drawing, Painting or Collage, suitable for publishing as a Christmas card. Judges are looking for an image only, please do not include text or make into a card shape.  

Judges will be looking for imaginative and eye catching designs which interpret the theme of

A Child’s Christmas which will represent what this special time of year means to the pupil. This could be a winter landscape of our area, a portrait with a festive scene, a still life with a festive theme or something of the pupils’ own imagination! Try to give that special local touch to the design.

Four different winners will be chosen to be made into official electronic cards for:

  • Strategic Director of Children’s Services: Mark Douglas
  • Lord Mayor: Councillor Doreen Lee
  • Chief Executive of Bradford Council: Kirsten England
  • Music & Arts Service (if you want to be considered for this card please include an imaginative musical element).

This will be across the age ranges but one runner up will be awarded in each age range:

  • Primary Key Stage 1 and Foundation
  • Primary Key Stage 2
  • Secondary school
  • Special school

The winner and each runner up will receive a prize and certificate.

A presentation event will be announced soon for mid-December (subject to COVID-19 restraints).

Designs can be on any size upwards of A4 and if possible will be returned to your school.


We ask that all designs – photography, drawing, painting or collage have the following printed clearly in block capitals on the back:

  • Childs Name
  • Year Group
