We know it’s not quite time to deck the halls, but who says you can’t get in the Christmas spirit a little early?

Today is the launch of our Christmas card competition, open for one month only. We’re asking you to help design our Christmas cards for 2014. So if you’re feeling a little creative this month you could be one of three winners to see their design on sale this November.

Christmas is a time we tend to think of others. From spending time with loved ones, singing carols for charity or sharing mince pies with colleagues, it is often about shared experiences. Which is why we would like you to include this year’s theme of community in your design.

Why not encourage the whole family, a club you are part of or even a group of friends to get involved? Make some eggnog and fill the house with festive scents, whip out the art box and get crafting. There’s no reason you can’t have festal fun a few months before Christmas!

The winning three designs will be chosen by our panel of expert judges and will be available to buy from the start of November. If your card is selected you will receive a pack of your design.

The competition has now closed.
