Young artists are being invited to take part in a competition to design a Christmas card which will be used by the leader of Ealing Council Peter Mason this year.
The competition is open to anyone 18 or younger who attends a school in the borough. Entrants must draw, colour or paint a design that shows what they love about our borough. This might include the parks or open spaces, local communities, shops, landmarks or even family and friends.
Winners will see their artwork reproduced for cards that will be used by the leader of the council, Peter Mason, and the council’s chief executive, Paul Najsarek. They will also be used throughout the festive period on the council’s social media channels.
Councillor Peter Mason said: “I know there are a lot of talented young people in Ealing and I’m very much looking forward to seeing their designs.
“I’m looking forward to our Christmas cards this year really capturing the imagination of those who receive them.”
The competition will be judged by Councillor Mason; Councillor Deirdre Costigan, deputy leader and cabinet member for climate action; and Councillor Kamiljit Nagpal, cabinet member for a fairer start.
Entries to the competition will close on Sunday, 28 November at 11.59pm, and winners will be announced week commencing Monday, 29 November. So do not delay, and enter today.
