Children and young people across Sussex are invited to design a postcard, and the winning three creations will be used by Chief Constable Jo Shiner when writing to children and young people.
There’s also a range of unique and exciting prize for the winners across three age categories (up to 10, 11–14 and 15–18).
What do I have to do?
To enter the competition, create a postcard design that is suitable to be printed in a 2D format on a postcard. You can use any media, including painting, photography, mixed media/collages, graphic designs or drawings. The final postcard size will be approximately 14.8 x 10.5cm.
You can make it about anything you like, but might be inspired by the priorities that everyone in Sussex Police works to:
When you have finished your creation, you can either:
with the following details included:
If you are little, you might need to get some help from a grown up to complete your entry, but don’t let them take the credit for your creation!
Deadline for entries is Monday 30 November at midnight.
Who can enter?
Anyone who is aged up to 18 until midnight on 30 November 2020 can enter the competition.
Entries will be categorised according to their age on 30 November into three age groups: up to 10, 11–14 and 15–18.
Who will judge the winners?
Winners will be chosen by a panel of young people and independent judges.
Can I get help from an adult or guardian?
Yes, adults can give support and help when children prepare their entries, for example during the process of coming up with ideas, providing materials and devising their design. However, the creation should be by the entrant as much as possible taking into account age, abilities etc.
Can schools enter?
Yes, we welcome groups of entries from schools, either done during school time or at home, and also encourage schools to promote the competition within their communities to encourage children to enter.
What are the prizes?
The winning designs will be printed on a postcard and used by Sussex Police Chief Constable Jo Shiner when corresponding with children and young people. Winners will get the chance to enjoy the following Sussex Police experiences when government restrictions allow:
Print versions of runners up will be displayed at police stations across Sussex early 2021.
If I win, will I get my artwork back?
We will ask the winning entries to send their artwork to us so that it can be professionally photographed to be reproduced on the postcard, and we will then return this via post.
Unfortunatley we cannot return all artwork submitted via post.
When will winners be announced?
Winners will be announced during December 2020.
