Competition Theme

Coast and Country Cottages are proud to now be part of a B Corp accredited company. This recognition highlights our dedication to making positive contributions to people, the planet, and the communities we serve.

We encourage entrants to reflect on this theme when designing their cards. Your artwork should not only capture the magic of Christmas but also celebrate the beauty of South Devon while promoting its conservation and protection.

Additional Information

Please hold on to your original creation. In the event you win, we might require the original artwork to print our Christmas cards.

The winning entry will feature the artist’s name, age, and their school on the Christmas card. We will also announce the winner on our social media platforms and in local press. It’s crucial that entrants obtain parental/guardian consent for this. If consent isn’t granted, please indicate this where the child writes their name on the entry form.
