Christmas Card Competition

As a part of this year’s Ageing Well Festival, we have decided to run an art competition, with a festive twist. Seeing as the festival itself will take place at the end of September, we thought it’d be brilliant timing for Christmas Cards!

The aim of the contest is to create artwork for the front of a Christmas Card, following the theme of “Christmas in Torbay”, and this artwork can be either painted or drawn on A4 or A5 paper. Winning entries will receive a pack of ten cards with their design printed on them.

  • Theme: Christmas in Torbay
  • Drawing or Painting
  • Entrants to use Paper only: A4/A5 (framed work will not be accepted)
  • Open to everyone over the age of eighteen

The 1st, 2nd & 3rd winners will have their work reproduced and printed on quality cards and they will receive a pack of 10 cards each. These cards will also be used by Ageing Well as part of their publicity, including their printed Christmas cards for 2017.

Important: please put your Name, address, and telephone number (email if available) on the back of the work.

Artwork can be dropped off or posted to The Artizan Gallery ( Lucius Street, Torquay TQ2 5UW (Mark envelope Ageing Well Competition)
