Christmas Drawing Competition
Annual Christmas Drawing Competition 

Call to young artists to draw a Christmas picture for Essentially Local. Get your brightly coloured felt pens or paint out, take an A4 sheet of paper and let your imagination run away with you. The cheerier and Christmassy the better! Send or drop your entries to The Stony Sweet Shop by 5pm, Friday 15 October. 

Winning pictures will appear on the cover of the Essentially Local November-December edition, with others throughout the magazine. They’ll also be celebrating the children’s pictures on their social media feeds. Winners will be awarded certificates and prizes. 

The team are planning an exhibition as in previous years, hopefully pandemic free! The fantastic Stony Stratford Library usually holds the exhibition on Essentially Local’s behalf. As it is currently being refurbished, confirmation of the venue will take place closer to the time.

The competition is open to anyone aged from 4-12 years of age. The important stuff including details about your entry, the winners and prizes can be found at, however if you have more questions give Essentially Local a call 01908 380777.
