Can you design a banner?

CALLING all budding artists - we need your help to spread festive cheer to our readers.

Once again, we are asking young people, aged up to 18, to create a Christmas banner.

The design must include the message "Merry Christmas to all our readers" and the winning entry will be printed on the front of our Christmas Eve edition.

The banner must be 28cms wide by 6cms deep and can include anything festive, from baubles to angels and trees to puddings.

Youngsters can use pencil crayons, glitter or felt-tips - the more colourful the better.

Last year's winner was Emily Brown, 11, from Byker, in Newcastle. The Heaton Manor School pupil did a cracking job with her picture, which featured a snowman, Santa hat, Christmas tree and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. She said: "I got my ideas from looking at Christmas pictures and cards."

Entries must be sent by post to Nicola Weatherall at Evening Chronicle, Thomson House, Groat Market, Newcastle, NE1 1ED, by December 20.

Please include your full name, age and home contact details on the back.

We shall be contacting the winner on December 23.
