SDN invites its members to design our Christmas Cards for 2018

This is the third year that we have sold Christmas cards to raise awareness of our charity and to increase funds. For next year, we would like to invite our members to design our cards.  Many of you will have artistic skills or enjoy photography and winter is here giving us opportunities to use our skills .  You may be hoping to snap a winter scene, or getting the water colours, oil, acrylics or pencil out to create a design. This is your opportunity to get creative

There are a few rules to enter our competition.  They are:

  • To take part, you must be a registered member of Shropshire Disability Network.
  • Entries accepted must be your own work:   photographs/water colour/oil/acrylics/pencil.
  • No 3D designs.
  • Submissions from Organisations and Professionals will not be accepted.
  • You agree that if your entry is a winning design, it becomes our property to be used solely by SDN for creating our charity Christmas cards, which will be sold to support the charity.

Prize: Two designs will be chosen by independent judges shortly to be appointed by SDN. Each design will be incorporated into next year’s Christmas Cards, which will be sold in aid of Shropshire Disability Network which includes Safe Place Shropshire.  The winning designers’ names will be displayed with our logos on the back of the cards.

So, get those cameras or your art materials ready.  We are bound to see some wintry weather soon.

SDN Management Committee will consider holding an exhibition of all entries submitted.
