Christmas Card Competition

Church Action on Poverty LogoChurch Action on Poverty have launched a competition to design a Christmas card for the charity. Find out more below and at the following link:


Can you design a Christmas card that brings a message of hope and justice? Try your hand at designing a cartoon, taking a photograph, using computer graphics or creating a 2D collage, drawing or painting. Maximum size A3.

Use any materials you like but please remember your creation will need to be scanned, so it will need to lay flat. Do not design the inside or back of the card.

Ask permission

Please ask your parent or carer’s permission before designing your card and entering the competition or sending us your details. You may need to ask them to help package and send your entry to us so that it will not get damaged.

Send in your entry

Remember to include your name, your parent or carer’s name, and your age, address, phone number and email address.

  • By post We are sorry but we are unable to return entries to you. Use the Freepost address provided so you do not need to pay postage. Send your entry and details to: Freepost RSHB-TUGR-RAGU, Church Action on Poverty, Dale House, 35 Dale Street. Manchester M1 2HF.
  • By email If you have access to a scanner or have created your design on a computer, you may prefer to email your entry. Make sure it is scanned or saved in the highest quality you can, and send to [email protected]
