Cotton On MCR Christmas Card Competition

Merry Christmas folks! OK, you may think it’s a bit too early to be thinking about the C word, but we are very excited for the festive season especially because this year, we are running our first ever competition! WOOP!

This is the first of our competition, where we are inviting all you Manchester creatives out there to design our Cotton On MCR Christmas card. Paintings, photography, textiles, illustration, collage, drawings… whatever you want it be. All we ask is that you think outside the box – basically no bee’s! We are very proud Mancunians, don’t get us wrong, but the bee’s has been done. We want something different, not your typical card. As long as it’s arty, it’s all up to you!

Now for the fun part, what do you actually win?

  • Two tickets to the next Art Battle event, courtesy of our friends at Art Battle
  • A goody bag full of arty fun things, courtesy of our friends at Cass Art
  • A featured article about you and your work on the blog
  • And of course, your design on our Christmas card which will be sent to all the galleries in Greater Manchester

All other entries will feature on the blog under a gallery page.

So, if you fancy entering, read through the T&C’s below and good luck!
