Smile Christmas Card Competition 2023

This year, we thought we’d celebrate the talents of the children at our schools by hosting a Smile Christmas card competition!

So many schools sent their amazing entries in to our consultants, who diligently looked over every single one and were amazed at some of the brilliant Christmas creations students had sent in. From mega talented budding illustrators to future portrait painters, the quality of the entries this year was truly spectacular.

Read until the end of this blog to find out who we’ve chosen for the top spot. This year’s winner will receive a framed copy of their design, as well as a £20 voucher and some of the finished Christmas cards to send to loved ones. We’ll also be giving a huge arts hamper to the winning school!

We’ve also pulled together some of our top favourite entries this year – can you find yours in this list?

Congratulations Nadia! We really liked the amount of detail you put into your design - especially the patterns you've drawn on the presents. It made us Smile, so we've chosen it to feature on the front of our Christmas cards this year. We'll be paying your school a visit very soon to deliver your prize!

Well done to everyone who entered our competition, we think you're all absolutely incredible.
