Thank you to everyone who entered our Christmas Card Competition which has now closed. We had some wonderful entries and the shortlist is now open for a public vote so take a look and choose your favourite...
We asked fantastic photographers, great graphic designers and awesome artists to send us their best photo or design on the theme of winter woodlands and wood to feature on this year's Earth Trust Christmas card.
We were looking for wonderful wintry views of Earth Trust woodlands (see below for a full list of our sites) or trees (including leaves, logs and bark), or images of some of the wildlife you might find at this time of year.
The competition closed at 5pm on Monday 14th November.
The Earth Trust judging panel has drawn up a shortlist of the best cards which are now in a public vote – the winning design chosen by you will feature on this year’s Earth Trust Christmas card, available to buy from 1st December. The inside of the card will be left blank, for your own message, so if you’re celebrating Sinterklaas or want to wish someone a Happy Hanukkah you can still enjoy the unique design.
