Young artists are invited to take part in a competition to design a Christmas card that would be used by the leader of Ealing Council and its cabinet members, and senior council officers too – including the chief executive.
Winners’ artwork will be reproduced for official cards and may also be used during the festive period on the council’s social media channels.
Competition is open
The competition is open to anyone 18 or younger who attends a school in the borough. Entrants must draw, colour or paint a design with a theme of sport or healthy lives in Ealing. This could include sporting activity in local parks, green spaces or leisure centres; or examples of living a healthy life. Designs could also include local landmarks or even family, friends and pets.
Talent of young people
Council leader Peter Mason said: “When we ran a Christmas card competition last year I was blown away by the talent of young people in Ealing and I’m very much looking forward to seeing their designs this year.
“I feel sure that, just like last year, those who receive a Christmas card with the winning design will be giving it pride of place in their home.”
The competition will be judged by Councillor Mason; Councillor Kamaljit Nagpal, cabinet member for a fairer start; Councillor Josh Blacker, cabinet member for healthy lives; and Councillor Jasbir Anand, cabinet member for thriving communities.
