Enter our Christmas card competition for a chance to win vouchers for the winning artist and for your school

City streets are being illuminated by fancy light displays, gigantic tubs of chocolates are bursting off supermarket shelves and John Lewis has finally unveiled its much-anticipated ad campaign… The run-up to Christmas 2016 has officially begun. This year, TES will be joining in the festivities with our very own Christmas card – and we’d like one of your pupils to help us design it. 

To enter the competition, simply send us your pupils’ Christmas card designs. The winner will not only have their design grace the mantelpiece of teachers’ homes across the country, but the lucky pupil will also receive a £50 book voucher for themselves – as well as a £100 Marks & Spencer voucher for their school. 

This is a great opportunity to show off your pupils’ artistic talents, and children of any school age are eligible to enter. The winning design will feature on a TES Christmas card that will be sent out to all of our subscribers, and we’ll also be showcasing some of our favourite runner-up designs on the TES website before the big day itself. 

To enter the competition, simply email your pupils’ designs to, or send them to the following address:
