Christmas Card Design Competition Results 2016

Two designs were chosen to be sold in RHS shops this Christmas

We asked schools to get into the Christmas spirit and create a design that could become the next RHS Christmas card.

We received an incredible 1,619 entries of beautiful Christmassy scenes by young people aged 18 and under, using a mixed range of media from pencil, crayon and paint to cotton wool, glitter and paper. There were two age categories, 12-18 years old and 11 years old and under.

After a very tough judging process, two winners were chosen from a shortlist of 39 entries. The winners will have their cards printed and sold in RHS shops at all four RHS Gardens and on the RHS website this Christmas and each receive a framed copy of their design, several packs of their printed cards and a bundle of gardening goodies and art supplies worth £100.

See the winners and shortlisted entries below.
