A creative child or gifted group of youngsters could win lessons with the Hampstead School of Art and £250 for their school’s art department as part of a festive competition.

The Hampstead Christmas Festival’s organisers are calling for young artists – up to and including Year 6 pupils – to submit an image for the front cover of this year’s Hampstead Christmas Festival brochure. The brochure will be A4 size, in full colour and contain several different sections.

Paintings, drawings and illustrations entered must reflect the theme of “Christmas in Hampstead”, so a snowy Hampstead Heath, a Salvation Army band and the high street’s Christmas lights could all feature.

All entries will be on show during this year’s festival, which will take place on Sunday, November 24.

To enter the competition, children must deliver their artwork to Savills estate agents in Perrin’s Court, Hampstead, by October 18.

The pieces should be no bigger than 20x30cm and marked clearly with the entrant’s name and contact details. There is no entry fee.

The images will be judged by a panel including Hampstead School of Art principal Isabel Langtry and local artists Gillian Lawson and David Margulies.
