Christmas is coming, and we need your help. This year we’re asking children in the area to design a christmas card to be used by Provost Buchanan and Chief Executive Kenneth Lawrie.

And the winning designers will each pick up a £50 Smyths Toys voucher. There will be three prizes, one per age group:

  • 3-5
  • 5-7
  • 7-11

Entries are encouraged from children up to age 11. Please include your name, age, address and contact details with your design.

Winning entries from the competition will also be shown in the next edition of Tenant Talk, the magazine for Falkirk Council tenants.

Design brief

  • Christmas cards are postcard size (A6, or one quarter of A4)
  • It can be portrait or landscape
  • Keep your idea simple - if your card is full it won’t print well
  • Don’t stick things to it - objects and glitter can’t be printed
  • Use bold colours and Christmas themes
  • Have fun!
