It may be 68 sleeps until Christmas, but we have just the thing to get you in the festive mood. The University’s annual Christmas Card Design Competition is now open for entries!

Until 10th November, staff and students have the chance to enter their design to be used as the official University Christmas card. The winning entry will also receive a £100 book token, second place will receive a £50 token and third place will receive a £25 token.


Last Year’s Runner-up

The competition is run by Vice-Chancellor Professor Janet Beer, who is particularly eager to see designs inspired by the University’s history or by personal memories of the University.

Designs can be anything from a photograph, a painting, a drawing or a digital design.

Last year’s winner was Yu Guo, a second year architecture student who used Liverpool’s famous skyline as the backdrop for her card design. Second place went to Tashia Anindwita, a second year veterinary science student. Tashia’s charming design incorporated the Liver bird, a festive wreath and our iconic Victoria Gallery and Museum building. Third place was awarded to Phil Kay, the Gardener at Ness Botanic Gardens for his photo of a robin.
