Amber launches her 2018 Christmas Card Competition

Amber Rudd, MP for Hastings and Rye has launched her Christmas Card Competition for 2018 which will see hundreds of designs sent in to Parliament from local schools. Entrants must submit their designs by the 19th of October, where judging will take place to select a winner and runners up.

The winner of the competition will have their design used for Amber’s annual Christmas card, which will be sent to thousands in the constituency as well as Amber’s colleagues in Parliament. The winner will also be given a small gift from Amber and be offered a tour of the Palace of Westminster.

Amber said: “With the recent cold weather it seems to be the right time to get into the festive spirit and launch my Christmas Card Competition for 2018. I look forward to visiting the fantastic fairs and dazzling displays that our towns put on over the season.”

“My Christmas Card Competition is a chance for some of my younger residents to showcase their artistic talent, as the winner’s design will be sent to thousands including the Prime Minister! I encourage all Primary School and Year 7&8 students to submit their designs into my competition. Good luck to everyone, and I look forward to meeting this year’s winner.”
