We are very excited to launch our Christmas card competition!

The competition is to design a card that will be printed and sold in our shop to raise money for Beat SCAD. The design will also be made into an ecard that will be available on Don’t Send Me a Card.

So why not get creative with the kids over the holidays?

There will be up to four winners in two categories.

  • Children up to the age of 14.
  • Adults and children over 15 – SCAD patients, families, friends and anyone else who would like to support our charity.

Your designs can be a photo, hand drawn or computer generated and can be in colour or black and white and must be in two dimensions. We’d like the designs to be festive and you are welcome to include references to spontaneous coronary artery dissection and/or hearts.

The winners of the Children’s Competition will receive Hobbycraft vouchers to the value of £30 plus two free packs of cards printed with their design.

The winners of the Over-15s and Adults’ Competition, in addition to seeing their design on the front of the Christmas cards, will receive one item of their choice of Beat SCAD clothing and two free packs of cards printed with their design.

All proceeds from the sale of the Christmas cards go to Beat SCAD.
