Mayor's Christmas card competition now open


Last year's winning designs

As the festive season approaches, John Biggs, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, is once again on the lookout for exciting new designs for his Christmas cards.

Children who live or go to school in Tower Hamlets are being encouraged to get creative and enter Tower Hamlets Council’s Christmas card competition.

The three winning designs will feature on cards sent by Mayor Biggs, Will Tuckley, Chief Executive and James Thomas, Corporate Director of Children’s Services.

As well as seeing their designs on this year’s e-cards, the lucky winners will each receive a book token.

Mayor Biggs said: “Christmas is fast approaching and it’s time for children to get creative to help us with our festive greeting cards. Our borough has so many talented young people and I look forward to seeing this year’s drawings, paintings and designs.”

The council received more than 60 brilliant entries through last year’s competition.

How to enter

Entrants must be aged five to 11 and either live or go to school in the borough.

Entries must:

  • be A5 in size, either landscape or portrait
  • be original, creative and colourful
  • include the child's name, age, contact phone number, school and address.

Designs should be submitted by email by 1pm on Tuesday 17 November.

In addition to the winning entries appearing on Christmas cards, images of all entries may be featured in internal and external communications from the council, including our website, social media channels and newsletter.
