Wanted: festive artists for Mayor’s Christmas competition
Artists with a festive flair are being asked to put paint to paper and design the Mayor of Tamworth’s Christmas card.
Cllr Tina Clements is launching the art competition – and the winner will see their design adorn the Mayor’s annual Christmas card, which will be sent to hundreds of people, both in the UK and abroad.
School children, community groups and individuals can all take part and be in with a chance of winning the competition.
The Mayor is hoping to get as many entries as possible, before choosing an eventual winner, whether drawn, painted, coloured in or using arts and craft.
Cllr Clements is also encouraging people of all ages to get involved, regardless of their artistic skills.
“This year Tamworth has had so much going on from the Olympic Torch, the Jubilee and winning In Bloom gold, I want to be able to send a card which celebrates Tamworth.
“The winner will receive a framed copy and I hope will be really proud to know their design has been seen by hundreds of people.
“Don’t be put off if you think your art skills aren’t up to scratch, I am looking for a card which has a festive feel and also a taste of Tamworth.”
Entries should be sent to: Lin Street, c/o Democratic Services, Marmion House, Tamworth, Staffs, B79 7BZ. The closing date for entries will be Friday 19th October.
The entries should be sent in on A4. Arts and crafts can be included on the card but please note, if there are too many elements, they may not reproduce as well as the original.
