Christmas Card Competition 2015

24th September 2015
With the new school year now in full swing, Member of Parliament for the Witham constituency, Priti Patel, is inviting local school children to participate in her 2015 Christmas Card Competition. This year’s theme is simply Christmas,
The competition is open to all children of primary school age who live in the Witham constituency. The winning design will feature on the front cover of Priti’s Christmas card, with the images of all runners-up on the back. Priti will present the winner with a prize at their school and also award them a special tour of the Houses of Parliament in the New Year.
First launched by Priti in 2011 the Christmas Card Competition has become a Christmas tradition with hundreds of entries received from local children and schools each year. 
After writing to schools in her constituency, Priti said:
“I am always excited to launch my annual Christmas Card Competition because it is such a treat to see the talent and creativity of our local schoolchildren. Each year the submissions seem to get more impressive and creative. I am really look forward to seeing how imaginative the pupils will get this year. This competition is intended to get young students excited about the holiday season, and I wish all participating students the best of luck with their designs!” 

To reproduce the artwork for the card, Priti is asking pupils to submit designs no larger than A4 nor can they be folded nor have glitter, glue or decorative items on them. The artist’s name, age and school should be clearly marked on the reverse of the artwork so that a winner and runners-up can be identified. All entries must be received at Priti’s Westminster Office by noon on Friday 30th October 2015. This year’s theme is simply Christmas.Submissions should be mailed to:
