Christmas card competition 2019

posted in: Portal | 0

It’s that time of year again – we’re on the hunt for a new design for our 2019 GFS Christmas card. All GFS girls and young women aged 5-16 are eligible to enter.

The winner will see their credited design printed on the cover of this year’s official GFS Christmas card which is sent put to all our members, Group Leaders and partners. The winner will also receive a £30 Amazon voucher and two runners-up will receive a £10 Amazon Voucher each.

The design brief

Be as creative as you like, but your design must be festive in some way. It must also be inclusive and inoffensive (although being a bit cheeky/funny is fine).

Designs can be hand drawn, painted, digitally produced (using a drawing app) or designed however you like. However, it must be flat (not pop-up) so it can be scanned and sent to print.

Bonus points will be given to designs that fill every inch of the page with colour, so please try to maximise the amount of space and not leave any plain white background (unless it’s snow of course…).

We recommend creating something that’s A4 as a maximum and A6 as a minimum in size as the printed design will be adjusted to fit an A6 card (15cm x 10.5cm).

Take a look at last year’s winning entries for inspiration.

To Enter

The competition is open to any current GFS girl aged 5-16.

You must write your (the artist’s) name, age and GFS group on the back of your design. We regret that we will not be able to return artwork.
