Christmas card competition 2021 – My GFS Christmas Dream

posted in: News | 0


It’s our favourite time of year, once again – time to make your entries for the annual 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 out to all our volunteers, Townsend Network 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

This year we have a theme: My GFS Christmas Dream

We want you to represent your dream for Christmas 2021. It can be a dream for yourself, someone you know, or for the wider world. It could be one that could really happen, or one that’s totally magical.

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).
