Christmas Card Competition

This festive season, we're asking you to get creative and design a Christmas card that could feature in our shops across Norfolk and Waveney in 2022.

Monday 25th October 2021 - Monday 3rd January 2022

We want each entry to be unique, so you can either draw, paint, photograph or even make your own digital graphic. We have 3 different judging categories and our only criteria is that your design is appropriate for a Christmas card and that it’s completely your own work. The 3 categories are:

  • Drawings, collages, illustrations, paintings, graphics
  • Photographs
  • Children’s entry (for those aged 16 and under)

The winners will be announced across our social media channels and your design could even be made into an official Big C charity Christmas card for 2022. The proceeds of these will help support our vital work to improve the lives of those affected by cancer in Norfolk and Waveney.


What to do next:

  • Unleash your creativity! You can draw, paint or even use technology to create a graphic. Don’t forget to make it as Christmassy as you can, it is the most wonderful time of the year after all.
  • Please do not use any images/photographs that are downloaded from the internet, as we won’t be able to use them due to copyright reasons.
  • The design needs to fit into a square shape, as this is the format which our winning cards will be printed in.


How to enter:
Please send in your finished designs along with your name and contact details to fundraising@big-c.co.uk. The closing date is the 3rd January 2022. The winners will be picked by our judging panel.
