Christmas Card Competition 2022: Love Erith and Thamesmead

I am once again pleased to announce that I’m holding a competition to design my Christmas Card. I am inviting students from schools across Erith and Thamesmead to take part.

The theme for this year is: ‘Love Erith and Thamesmead’. I would like pupils to draw or paint a design that shows what they love about places in our constituency. This might include the parks or open spaces, local communities, shops, landmarks or even family and friends.

Entries must be accompanied by a few sentences explaining what the landmark means to the young artist and why they chose to draw it. The artwork will be assessed by a panel of judges, and the winning design will be used as my Christmas Card and sent to more than 1,000 local people and groups.

We had a great turnout last year for this competition and I am looking forward to seeing all the unique designs that students come up with.

If you would like to know more information about the competition or to submit entries, email me at
