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 that 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 pupil’s
own imagination! Try to give that special local touch to the design.
Six different winners will be chosen to be made into official electronic cards for:
Strategic Director of Children’s Services: Marium Haque
Lord Mayor: Councillor Gerry Barker
Chief Executive of Bradford Council: Lorraine O’Donnell
Music & Arts Service: Carl White (Please include an imaginative musical element).
