Christmas Card Competition is here!

It’s time to get creative and get your design on the H3 Christmas card 2017


We are looking for: An A6 design (105 x 148mm) that has an association with the festive period. It would also be fantastic if it could relate to the theme of ‘housing or home’ but it doesn’t have to.

Please only use pens and pencils to decorate your card, as we cannot scan or re-create stick on crafts. If you would like to borrow pens and pencils to take part, just ask.

How to enter: Please send designs to us by email or by post, or leave them in the box at your scheme’s reception. Please ensure you label each design with the name, address and date of birth of the artist.

By hand: Hand in to H3 or Brindale staff at Brindale, Strathclyde or Buxton Road.

By email: Entries sent electronically must come to us as a PDF, JPEG, Tiff or EPS file. Please send these to and include ‘Christmas card competition’ in the subject field.

By post: Please send entries to H3 Christmas Card Competition, Brindale House, Brinnington, Stockport SK8 5DL.

All entries must be received by November 16th 2017

The winning design will be used in our 2017 Christmas card collection. We will send the winner a framed image of their entry and a pack of the winning card design.
