Cracking Christmas Card Competition & Free Workshop!


An Talla Solais is running its first ever Christmas Card Competition in memory of their great supporter Dick Lindsay.

Open to all children aged 12 and under, we are looking for a design that sums up your Christmas. It could be Santa on his sleigh or your home in the snow - or perhaps a sparkling Christmas tree.....

Please draw, paint or print your entry on a piece of A5 paper, please ensure the name address and contact details of the artist are on the back of each entry. As the winning card will be printed it means that glitter and bulky collage will not translate........but a bold, fun design will!

You are welcome to enter more than one design. 

Bring your entries to the An Talla Solais office on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday or pop them through our letter box if the office is closed.

Come along to the fun, free workshop on Wednesday November 6th from 4pm to 6pm - run by Eireann Strange in the community art room at An Talla Solais - and beat the closing deadline!

Closing date for entries is 6th November 2013.

Every entry will be displayed in the shop window of Westering Home from the 7th November -  the winner will be decided by public vote. Voting slips will be available from the West Coast Delicatessen & The Tea Store  - please post all completed voting slips through the Westering Home letterbox by the 12th November.

The winning design will be announced in the Ullapool News. The design will be made into cards and sold to help raise funds for An Talla Solais (Charity no SC040348) - The lucky winner will also receive a prize of art materials from GreatArt - to help them create more masterpieces!

You can order the winners cards at the end of November by emailing sara@antallasolais.org or buy direct from Sara & Eireann at the Ullapool Christmas Market in the Village Hall on the 6th & 7th of December. 

Good luck! We look forward to seeing your festive designs!
