Fenstanton Parish and United Reformed Churches.

Design a Christmas card competition


Would you like to see a card you have designed, printed and delivered to all 1,100 homes in Fenstanton?

Today in school assembly we have launched a competition to design a Christmas card that will be delivered to every home in Fenstanton with details of all our Church Services (at Parish and URC churches) for the Christmas season. Below are all the competition details.

The design itself needs to be on a piece of white paper A5 size. (21x15cm) and drawn as shown (landscape) The image itself when printed on the cards will be half this size –A6.

Top Tips

The design itself needs to reflect something of the reason why we celebrate the season e.g. the birth of Jesus. Colourful designs print best in card format.


  • Use clear lines, with not too much detail (it may be lost in production)

  • Fill the whole space......not just the centre of it

  • Make sure it is all your own work

  • Do not use any words in your design

Closing date for entries is Friday 20th October 2017 at end of the school day. Please return your entries to the school office. On the back of your design, your name, age and class must be written (in light pencil please) The winner will be announced in school assembly after half term. The Prize is £15 WHSmith gift card, and all entries will be displayed in the Churches during the Christmas season. We know you are all talented children and we eagerly await your entries.

Good Luck!
