Enter the 2018 Purple Mash Festive Card Competition - Now Closed

Oct. 22, 2018

One of our favourite things about the festive period is sending and receiving cards. That’s why we are looking for that special person to create the official Purple Mash festive card for 2018, and who better than a talented pupil from the Purple Mash community!

All children need to do to enter is use 2Paint a Picture to design a card that reflects what this time of year means to them, then submit it to the competition display board inside Purple Mash. It’s 2Simple!

Open to all children aged up to 11 years and any children up to the age of 18 who attend SEND provision in any setting, it’s a great way for your class to show off their creative flair to the world.

Existing subscribers can enter here.

If you don’t have a licence, you’re invited to register for an extended free trial lasting until the 9th of December, giving you full access to Purple Mash for the duration of the competition and beyond.

There are two age categories: under 8s, and under 12s, and those up to the age of 18 who attend SEND provision are welcome to enter the category chosen by their teacher.

After the competition closes we’ll choose our favourite design from each age group to become the official 2018 2Simple Festive Cards. The winning designers will be sent 50 professionally printed copies of their card plus their design on a cool t-shirt. Not only that, we’ll send their school an additional 250 copies of the card.


This competition is open from the 1st to the 25th November 2018. Winners will be notified soon afterwards. Take a look at last year’s entries below for a little inspiration.

Subscribers can enter within the Festive Card Competition page in Purple Mash, where they'll also find the competition overview, how to videos to share with your class, posters to display around your school, a welcome letter to share with parents and more.

Good luck!
