The winning entry becomes Victoria’s official Christmas card and features the runner-up designs on the back. This year’s theme is Away in a Manger. Designs can be either landscape or portrait and should be as colourful as possible.

Mrs Prentis said: “One of the highlights of the year is my Christmas Card competition. I am always so overwhelmed by the talent of those who enter. I am sure this year will be no exception. With half term here, I hope children might have the time to get creative. I can’t wait to see all the entries I receive.”

All entries should be sent to Victoria’s constituency office in Orchard House, Hopcraft Lane, Deddington, OX15 0TD, with the child’s full name, age, and school on the back of the design, by Friday, November 13 November.

Blanka Preweda, aged 8, from Queensway Primary School was the winner of Victoria Prentis's 2018 Christmas card competition

Last year's competition coincided with the General Election but we feature some of Mrs Pentis's favourite entries - and the 2018 winning entry - on this page.
