Shoebox Express Art Competition

1 DESIGN A CHRISTMAS/GREETINGS CARD

Each year, the Methodist Church in Formby sends Christmas parcels to children in poor areas of Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Africa.  Each parcel contains a Christmas/greetings card which is signed by the person who sent the parcel.  The child that receives the parcel will be between 2 years old and 14 years old.

Please design a new picture for us to use on the Christmas/greetings cards we send in our shoeboxes.  You can use a piece of paper of any size, provided that it does not exceed A4 (210mm x 297mm).  The cards we send are about 15cm by 10cm, so think about how your design might look at this size. 

Please write clearly your name, age and contact details (phone number and/or email address) on the reverse of your entry.  We will use the contact details only to communicate with the prize winners. Please read the full rules, these are shown below.

2 DESIGN A SHOEBOX EXPRESS POSTER

Each year, the Methodist Church in Formby organises event days at which people of all ages in the local community can select and assemble a personally-chosen Christmas parcel for children in poor areas of Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Africa.  We call ourselves Shoebox Express because we think we make the process of producing a box faster, easier and cheaper than how we used to do it.

Can you design us a poster for our 2018 project?  Please use a sheet of A4 paper.  Your design might be to attract the attention of children or adults (or even both!) in our community.  The judges will be looking for the best design idea/concept, so don’t worry too much about spelling, lettering or presentation – it will be your ideas that count. 

Please write clearly your name, age and contact details (phone number and/or email address) on the reverse of your entry.  We will use the contact details only to communicate with the prize winners. Please read the full rules, these are shown below.

Prizes:   A grand prize of £50 for the best overall entry and two runners-up prizes of a £10 book token.

Closing Date for entries: 31st October 2017.
