25 Oct 2019

We are inviting children at every primary school in Stoke-on-Trent to design the National Literacy Trust's 2019 Christmas card! The card will be sent to supporters, partners and funders, and will also be sold to raise money for the charity.

The competition will be judged by award-winning illustrator Nick Sharratt, best known for his work with Jeremy Strong and Jacqueline Wilson. The winning design will win a really exciting school visit from Nick in the coming months.

Thanks to the generous support of Stoke BID, the artist behind the winning design will also receive a family ticket for Alton Towers, and along with 11 shortlisted designs, will be on display throughout December at a gallery in the intu Potteries Shopping Centre. The 11 shortlisted entries will each receive a stocking’s worth of books for their school library.

Designs should show what Christmas means to the children of Stoke – whether this is snow, presents or ice-skating, Nick will be looking for the most creative representation of the festive period.

Children are welcome to use any medium to create their design – so long as it fits onto an A4 sheet of paper!

Designs should be sent to Sarah Olley by Monday 11 November at:
National Literacy Trust
68 South Lambeth Road

Please send the original version (unfortunately we won’t be able to use scans).

Please include the following entrant information on the back of the design:
1. Name
2. School
3. Age
4. Contact email address for parent/teacher

All data will be treated within the National Literacy Trust’s privacy policy, and we will only contact you about this competition.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
