To kick off the festive period, we launched a Christmas card design competition for children across the UK, judged by award-winning illustrator Dapo Adeola (Look Up! and Clean Up! Penguin).

We saw hundreds of incredible entries and the top 12 designs are available to buy now, at £7 a pack or as an e-card. Scroll down to see them all and make a purchase!

The final 12 will all receive a bundle of brand new books for their school, and the overall winner, Nuala, aged 10, from High Wycombe will also receive a special visit from Dapo Adeola himself!

The lucky 12 also received personal feedback from Dapo. Here's why Dapo chose Nuala's design as the winner:

The 12 festive designs are available to purchase from Making a Difference here.

By purchasing these cards, you can help spark a love of reading for a lifetime.

The money raised from each card will help the National Literacy Trust increase children’s access to books they can connect with and enjoy, run literacy programmes to support the skills and learning of children who need it most.
