2024 Christmas Art Competition

Every year we sell Christmas cards to help raise funds to support our work. Cards are sold out of our three community hubs and out of the Original Norwich Charity Christmas Card Shop. This year we included two designs from our 2023 competition and have been receiving some fantastic feedback so we are looking for submissions for designs for cards to be sold in 2024.

We will be accepting entries for the 2024 Christmas Art Competition from 1st December 2023 until 29th February 2024 for the possibility of featuring your artwork on our charity Christmas cards!

The competition is open to anyone in Norfolk who is vision impaired. All ages are welcome. There will be three age groups: 0-8 years, 9-25 years and 26+. Please find more details below.


  • The final design will be 14cmx14cm covering the front of a square Christmas card. Participants are welcome to create and submit larger pieces of artwork. However you need to be aware that the artwork will be shrunk down to fit that size so it may be difficult to see some details. All artwork submitted should be square.

  • The artwork should be either Christmas or winter themed. You are welcome to take creative interpretations to this (for example abstract pieces featuring a lot of cool “wintery” colours or “festive” colours like red and gold).

  • Artist Statement We are asking all artists to submit a 1-2 sentence artist statement that may appear with the artwork.
  • Only one design per applicant please


We are asking for all artwork to be submitted by the end of the day on Thursday 29th February. The winning designs will be announced by the end of March.
