The Commissioner invites older people to submit a design and / or verse for the COPNI Christmas/ Holiday Season card for 2017.

As the chosen design / verse will be used on the Christmas / Holiday season card, associated images and themes would be most suitable. It may also feature something associated with later life and older age.

The closing date for entries is Friday 1st December and they can be submitted either via email to (provided a high quality image can be sent if you are submitting a design) or by post to the following address;

Rebecca Kelly
The Commissioner for Older People for Northern Ireland
7-9 Shaftesbury Square

Images must be a minimum size of A4 and can be done using any medium. There are no restrictions on the number of entries per person. We can generally return artwork originals if requested.

Whilst there is no minimum or maximum word length for the verse, please bear in mind that it must be short enough to feature on a card.

Should you have any questions, please get in touch with me on 028 90 890 897 or by emailing
