Staycationing in the Bailiwick this year, yet dreaming of destinations abroad?
BATIF Bureau de Change would like to encourage you to dream and bring your favourite place in the world to life in the form of a 'write and create postcard competition'.
The competition will be open to anyone in the Bailiwick across three age categories, (8 and under, 9-15 and 16+) and we'd like you to tell us about your favourite place in the world. It could be a desert oasis in Timbuktu, maybe Grandma's house in Spain or simply your own cosy Bailiwick bed?
This competition is now closed for judging.
- Describe in 40 - 70 written words your favourite place - where and why?
- Decorate the front in any way you like to reflect your favourite place - it could be a drawing/painting/photos/montage of magazine pics/words - absolutely anything, except it must be A5 size and primarily two dimensional. Texture is permitted but please make sure it can survive the posting process if you are going to post it, otherwise please hand your entry in over the counter at BATIF in Envoy House or BATIF in North Plantation.
- Include your name, age group and contact number or email on the postcard (contact details will be hidden when put on display)
- Post your entry into any Bailiwick postbox
- Hand it in over the counter at BATIF in Envoy House or BATIF in North Plantation
- Pop it in an envelope and address it to:
