Mayor’s Christmas Card Competition

The Mayor's Christmas Card Competition is open to children from Reception to Year 7 from all schools in the Council area.

The Mayor’s Christmas Card Competition was not held in 2018, due to Local Government Elections Caretaker Conventions in 2018.

The next competition will be held in 2019. 

Each year, children are invited to draw or paint a Christmas scene that they feel captures the spirit of the festive season.

The entries are judged by Mayor Robert Bria and awarded first, second and third prizes from each year level, in addition to an Overall Winner and recipient of the Mayor's Choice Award.

The winning entry from each year group is printed on Christmas Cards with the student’s name, year and school printed on the inside of the card.

The Council organises Christmas cards for the Mayor, Chief Executive Officer and General Managers for distribution to other Councils, government agencies, schools, community groups and individuals who have a professional relationship with the Council.

In addition, the winning entry will appear on the cover of the December edition of Look East.
