Christmas Art Competition

Every year we sell Christmas cards as a fundraiser for Vision Norfolk and to help get our name out in the community. We usually sell cards at each of our community hubs and in the Original Norwich Charity Christmas Card Shop in St Peter Mancroft (the church across from The Forum).

This year we are running a Christmas Art Competition for our clients for the possibility of featuring some of your artwork on our Christmas cards!

The competition is open to anyone in Norfolk who is visually impaired. All ages are welcome to send in their artwork. There will be three age groups: 0-8 years, 9-25 years and 26+.


  • 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.


We are asking for all artwork to be submitted by the end of the day on Monday 17th July. The winning designs will be announced by the end of the month.

Only one design per applicant please.
