Young carers artists competition 2012

Can you design the cover of a greeting card?

CarersTrust are looking for a bright, colourful design. So have fun and create something different!

The design may be drawn or painted in crayon, pastel, acrylics, poster colour, collage or a mix – use your imagination and make it colourful! Please use white or coloured paper and fill the paper with your design.

Your work should be original and unaided. Please do not copy another person’s work.
