Christmas Card Competition

Open to Primary school children aged 5-11

Create a seasonal design in any medium and send in a photograph of it as your competition entry.

You might like to think about expressing a message of hope, or joy or compassion. You might want it to show art bringing inspiration to many during difficult times – any design is welcome if you think it would look good as a Christmas card! You could even make a group or class design and send that in.

The winner will: 

  • Have their design printed and sent as RWA Christmas card to the patrons and major supporters of the RWA Light & Inspiration appeal which is fundraising to restore and improve the RWA gallery building.
  • Get a pack of the cards to send out to their friends and family
  • Get an activity worksheet and materials to create an artwork at home
  • See their design featured in RWA online newsletter

RWA is showing an art exhibition of hundreds of paintings and sculptures that visitors will be able to see once the lockdown restrictions are lifted. A free Resource Pack for primary school children to accompany the exhibition will be on RWA website by 21st November, for anyone to download and use. It might provide some inspiration for your competition entry!
