Winners announced for Christmas gift card and voucher design competition
The UK Gift Card and Voucher Association, the trade body representing the UKs £4.7 billion voucher and gift card industry, has announced the winners of its Christmas gift card and voucher design competition.
The winners each received a prize of £150 on a gift card with some of the winning children also seeing their Christmas designs produced into real gift cards and stocked in high street stores.
Sponsored by Stored Value Solutions, the competition involved students aged between five and 18 designing a gift card or voucher for their parents or carers using the theme of ‘what Christmas means to me’. The entries were then judged by a panel of experts from the prepaid industry.
Andrew Johnson, director-general of the UKCGVA said: “From day one, the competition has been a great success. The participation from the schools has been excellent and I hope they and the children have enjoyed creating their designs as much as we’ve enjoyed seeing them all come in. The level of thought and talent that has gone into all the entries has been outstanding.”
