Not just a shop is delighted to share that submissions are now live for the annual Christmas card competition with Tate! This exciting opportunity is open to all current UAL students and gives up to 5 winners the chance to see their own designs produced and sold by this world-renowned institution in their museum stores. The selected designs will also be available for sale in not just a shop and each winner will receive a £250 cash prize.

This annual competition is an excellent chance for students to gain exposure to the realities of retail greetings card production - like appealing to a wide but targeted audience and thinking about Christmas in April! Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of industry experts, members of the Tate merchandising team, and UAL staff. The selected winners will be announced in late May.

Past winners have featured anything from fresh takes on traditional holiday themes and colourful abstract designs, to wintry cityscapes and thieving Christmas elves. We encourage entries in a wide range of mediums. The deadline to enter is Monday 10 May 2021 at 10am. For the full download, all submission details can be found on the not just a shop competition page.
