The deadline for submission is 09.00 hrs on Friday 5th November 2021. Competition Guidelines:

The competition is open to all schools in Gibraltar for Years 3 to 6 pupils.

  • The Christmas card can be Landscape or Portrait in orientation.
  • There should be no writing on the card.
  • Designs must be done by hand. Computer programmes should not be used to create card images.
  • To allow for easy print reproduction, designs must not be three-dimensional.
  • All submissions should be made through the school.

All entries will be judged by a panel of judges, including His Excellency The Governor, and Minister for Education. Cards will be judged on the degree to which they meet three criteria: a representation of the spirit and events of a Gibraltarian Christmas; visual and emotional impact; and design originality.

The Winner will receive an Apple iPad (9th generation) 10.2-inch Wi-Fi 64GB, kindly donated by Newton Systems Ltd.
