Christmas Card Competition 2016
The theme for the 2016 competition was Refugees and Migrants. This challenging theme led to some exceptionally thoughtful and powerful work with over 50 entries. The standard of creativity was, as always, very high.
The winning entry was by Olivia Mitchell, a Year 11 student from St. Edward’s School in Cheltenham.
Runner-up was Yuan Li, a Year 12 student at New Hall School. Her haunting image suggests a divine care for those many thousands of people making the perilous journeys from their homeland.
