Calling all young artists, we are offering the opportunity to have your festive artwork displayed on the official Greater Manchester Police Christmas card.

We are launching the competition on Tuesday 10th November 2020.

Children aged between:

4 to 16 years, can design a corporate Christmas card for Greater Manchester Police demonstrating the different roles in Policing and the work we do to keep communities and the people in them safe.

Rules for artwork:

All entries must be hand-drawn and must be received by the closing date of Monday November 30th, 2020 (any entries received after the closing date will not be counted).

The image should fit on one side of A5 (an A4 piece folded in half) portrait or landscape.

This year’s theme will be to demonstrate the various roles (see some examples below) within Policing and to illustrate the work they do to keep our communities safe :

  • Police Community Support Officer
  • Crime Scene Investigator
  • Police Volunteer
  • Traffic Officer
