design a bauble competition

Submissions are now closed for the 2021 Christmas Bauble Design Competition. Voting from the shortlisted candidates is now open – please see below.

This year’s theme is Christmas on the Helford River. Whether it’s sailboats, seals, snowflakes or stars, thank you for getting creative and drawing what a Christmas on the Helford River means to you. 

The competition has been free to enter and there will be one winner selected from each of the three categories:  

  • 9 and Under 
  • 10-16 Years old 
  • Adults and professional illustrators  

The winning bauble designs will be laser cut into wood for a lasting, ecological alternative to plastic baubles, and sold to raise essential funds to get more children in Cornwall out on the water trying sailing and other accessible watersports. Each winner will receive a five pack of their design and their name credited on the back of the bauble. 

The 7 shortlisted designs for each category are now live on Children’s Sailing Trust Facebook and Instagram accounts. Please do vote to help choose a winner!

Below is a sample of the wooden bauble that each of the winning designs will be printed to on.
