Help us to celebrate Christmas

Do you love Christmas and have creative children? We're looking for a new design for our 2019 electronic Christmas card.

Our competition is open to all primary school children who live in Derbyshire and we're looking for a colourful, original and fun Christmas picture.

The winning design will become our official e-Christmas card and we'll send the winner a family ticket for a local pantomime.

We'll also choose 24 runners-up whose entries which we'll post on social media throughout December to mark advent.

The competition closes on 17 November 2019. As we'll need to scan the winning entry please do not stick large items on the design.

  • your name
  • your address
  • your child's name
  • your child's date of birth
