Some say three is a lucky number. Well, the Purple Mash Festive Card Competition is back for a third year so it could soon be lucky for you.
It's easy to enter. All you need to do is create a festive design using 2Paint a Picture then submit it to the competition display board for your age group, either under 8s or under 12s.
The prize: Our favourite design from each board will be transformed into the official Purple Mash Festive Card. Winning designers will receive 50 copies of their card, and a t-shirt with their design on it. Their school will receive an additional 250 copies of the card.
The display boards can be found within Purple Mash, along with video guides and printable resources such as a welcome letter to parents and a poster.
If you're not a subscriber, you can still enter. Sign up for a free trial of Purple Mash to enjoy full access for the duration of the competition.
Closing date: To make sure we have time to get the cards printed, all entries must be submitted by November 26th 2017.
We love looking through all your designs every year, and we can't wait to get started again. Take a look at last year's winners for some festive inspiration. Good luck!
Last year's under 8s winner: Amani, Newbridge Preparatory School
We loved the vibrant colours and use of shape. It's a fantastic example of how to use the 'Swirly' canvas in 2Paint a Picture. The multi-coloured 'Merry Christmas' message is a superb finishing touch. Great work!
Last year's under 12s winner: Danny, Pelton Community Primary School
This painstakingly crafted piece uses an '8-bit' effect and is simply unbelievable. It's the subtle attention to detail that makes this such a masterpiece, particularly the use of shadows. Fantastic work!
