Songs of Praise has launched a UK-wide competition calling on all budding artists to dig out their paintbrushes, to help raise money for BBC Children in Need. The competition will give amateur artists the opportunity to have their artwork featured on a Christmas Card which will be sold during the festive period to raise money for the Charity.

Welcoming entries from people of all ages and abilities, the public are being encouraged to artistically reflect what Christmas means to them. Entries will be judged on their originality, creativity, public appeal and their ability to capture the spirit of Christmas.

A total of ten winners will be selected, by a small judging panel, and their artwork will be used to create a card for the Songs of Praise Christmas Card pack. The judges, to be announced in due course, will include an expert from the arts world and a presenter from Songs of Praise.
