Every Year the Lord Mayor sends Christmas Cards to all the other Lord Mayors around the UK, Friends and Dignitaries from all around the world. This is known as a "Civic" Christmas Card, and for the first time EVER we are asking YOU to come up with the winning Photo for the Cards front cover Image, that's right, the winning image will not only be put on the Civic Christmas Card but also sent all around the world for people to enjoy and (if that's not enough) the cards once printed will be for sale in York for you, your friends and family to buy.

But that's not all!!! we are also looking to create a York Public Calendar which will also go on sale in York.


In all we are looking for 13 Images in total (1 for the Civic Christmas Card and 12 for the Calendar). the 13 winning entries, once chosen will be invited to a special awards ceremony at the Guildhall, where they will receive prizes awarded to them by the Lord Mayor.
