The Key's Christmas Card Competition is LIVE!

There's less than 50 days until Christmas so we're bringing you a brand new challenge as we're on the lookout for our 2019 Christmas Card design. Could it be yours?


You can draw, paint, sketch or even digitally design your very own Key Christmas Card entry. 

Whether it features Penguins, Reindeer, Robins, Christmas trees, a snowy representation of the 12 Key Skills or something else entirely, we're challenging you to be as creative as you like.

The chimney to enter isn't open too long with the deadline just a little over two weeks away on Wednesday 20th November 2019 at 4.00pm. So make sure you send your entry by email or post before then!

After that, we'll choose the winner who will receive a voucher and a copy of their very own Christmas Card!


Top Tips:
1. Bonus points will be given to those who can incorporate The Key, our skills, our Key Framework (think, plan, do and review) or how they've changed or developed as a reuslt of doing a Key Project into their design.
2. You only need to design the front of your card.
3. If you are sending us a scan of your design, make sure you don’t cut off any corners and keep it as straight as possible.
4. If you are sending us a photo of your design, make sure you take the picture from above, lining up the card as straight as possible. Avoid any glare or reflection!
5. Please do not submit it in black and white (unless you’ve gone retro of course!). Pencil drawings don’t print very well.
