Christmas card competition underway

  • 8 Oct 2015

Theresa May has launched her annual Christmas card competition and is searching for a festive design to be printed on them. The contest is open to children aged 11 and under who live in the Maidenhead constituency.

The competition, which has been running for more than a decade, will this year have the theme of ‘What I want for Christmas’. The winning entry will feature on all of Theresa’s Christmas cards sent out this year.

Entries for this year’s competition should be marked ‘Theresa May’s Christmas Card Competition’ and sent to the Maidenhead Advertiser, 48 Bell Street, Maidenhead, SL6 1HX.

The suggested size is A5. Designs need to be bold and bright, preferably using paint, felt tips or crayons as coloured pencils do not reproduce well when printed. Two-dimensional designs are preferred as glitter and cotton wool do not work when printed.

Entries should also include the name, age and school of the entrant and a daytime contact number for their parent or guardian.

The closing date for entries is Thursday 12th November. Judging will take place shortly afterwards.

This year’s prize has been kindly donated by Longridge Activity Centre. The designer of the winning entry will win a birthday party with birthday tea and activity of their choice at Longridge – a fantastic local site offering a variety of water sports and other activities.
