‘Tis the season to get... creative! It’s time to dust off the tinsel tool, dig out the virtual paintbrush and get your festive creativity flowing as the annual Purple Mash Festive Card Competition is now open!

The competition is open from Monday, 2nd November and runs all the way through to Monday, 23rd November. This allows us time to get all prizes delivered to the winning pupils before the December holidays begin in the UK. As a global competition though, any pupil worldwide has the chance to share with us what the festive season means to them!

How it works:

The competition is open to all children under 12 years old, and those who attend SEND provision up to the age of 18. All they need to enter is a flair for design, and a Purple Mash account.

To enter, children simply design their own festive card using Purple Mash tool 2Paint a Picture and submit it to the digital display board for their age category. At the end of the competition, our favourite design from each category wins. It’s 2Simple!

There are three age categories for entering:

Under 5s

Under 8s

Under 12s

Those who attend SEND provision up to the age of 18 are welcome to enter the appropriate age group.

Take a look at the video for a glimpse of what's possible with 2Paint a Picture, one of over 30 creative tools within Purple Mash.

Why should you enter:

The competition is one of our biggest here at 2Simple and our staff are eagerly awaiting your entries. This year, we’ve even included an added extra! All our winner's cards will also be turned into Purple Mash E-Cards, allowing every school everywhere to send the winners card to their class through 2Email or 2Blog! This means that you don’t have to send physical cards at a time when we are all trying to minimise human contact.

Get started!

Just simply head over to Purple Mash, log in and find the Festive Card Competition in the feature panel, or click here. This can be a lovely project to set as a 2Do and can be set as homework if you want! The children love it, the teachers love it and we also love it! You can download our Festive Card Competition overview pack which includes all the information you need, plus some very boring but necessary T&Cs.

Feel free to share any cards your pupils' design with us over on Facebook or Twitter to showcase your pupil’s work. Good luck!
