Christmas in August? You heard that right. The Christmas season is just around the corner, and with it comes the spirit of hope, love, and compassion.
After the resounding success of our 2020 campaign, PAPYRUS is thrilled to announce the return of our popular Hope Christmas Card Competition. This year, we are taking it to the next level by extending our invitation to all young people aged 4 to 18 across the nation to showcase their creativity and spread hope.
In the 2020 competition, we witnessed the brilliance of schoolchildren as they wielded their pens, pencils, and paintbrushes to craft impactful designs. This year, we want you to bring the same energy. Whether you are a digital design wizard, a Picasso with a paintbrush, an artist with oils, or someone with a natural flair for sketching, we want you to channel your inner artist and express what “hope” means to you.
The process is simple – design your creation, and let your imagination run wild. Think about what “hope” looks like to you and translate that vision into a design that will touch hearts and inspire all who receive it. Whether it’s a depiction of a bright star guiding the way, a warm hug of comfort, or a symbol of unity and togetherness, we can’t wait to see what you come up with. Once you have completed your design, email a copy of it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Ensure if taking a photo of your creation that the design is focused and clear.
The two winning designs, one from the primary school age category and the other from the secondary/sixth form school age category, will be proudly printed on the official PAPYRUS 2023 Christmas cards. Imagine your creation spreading hope and cheer across the nation, lighting up the faces of loved ones during the holiday season.
The competition officially opens today, and you have until Monday 28 August to submit your masterpiece. That gives you almost four weeks to create and submit your design. Remember, your art has the power to make a difference, to remind people that hope is a beacon that shines brightly even in the darkest of times.
As we eagerly anticipate the unveiling of the winners, mark your calendars for Friday 1 September, when we will announce the winning designs on our social media channels.
All entries will be shared on the PAPYRUS website and on PAPYRUS social media channels throughout September 2023. Some entries may also be chosen to appear in other channels which promote the work of PAPYRUS. This could include press and other media
Spread the word, encourage your friends, classmates, and loved ones to participate. Together, let’s make this competition a celebration of creativity, hope, and unity.
So, what are you waiting for? Unlock the artist within you, embrace the spirit of hope, and let your creation touch hearts across the nation. We can’t wait to see the magic you will bring to this year’s PAPYRUS Hope Christmas Card Competition!
Let’s paint the season with hope and love!
