We are inviting children aged 4-12 years to get inspired by The Snowman™ and draw or paint their own spectacular snowman picture for our special Chestnut Tree House Christmas card competition.
First published in 1978, Raymond Briggs’ original much-loved picture book, The Snowman™ will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year. In advance of this, we are helping this iconic and much loved character get into the party spirit by celebrating our 10-year relationship with The Snowman™ this winter.
As part of this, we are inviting children aged 4-12 years, living in Sussex or South East Hampshire, to get inspired by The Snowman™ and draw or paint their own spectacular snowman picture for our special Chestnut Tree House Christmas card competition.
Entries will be judged by a panel in two age categories (4-8 years and 9-12 years) and there will be one winner in each category.
Guest judge: Raymond Briggs CBE, Chestnut Tree House Patron and creator of The Snowman™
Entry deadline: Friday 24 November
Winners will be announced early December and invited to Chestnut Tree House to receive their prizes on the afternoon of Thursday 14 December.
