Student designs winning Christmas card

Our very talented Art and Design student Verity-Ann Dixon has won a student competition to design the official Christmas card to be sent out on behalf of Barnsley College, Barnsley Sixth Form College and University Campus Barnsley.

The annual competition is always a highlight of the academic year for students and one which the College management team looks forward to judging.

This year was no different with a very high standard of entries but voting produced a unanimous result in favour of Verity-Ann’s wintry scene. The original design was produced using acrylic paint on canvas board which was then scanned and reproduced as an electronic and printed card.

Verity-Ann, 16, said: “I love using acrylic paint. It’s definitely my favourite material to work with and I knew I wanted to use it for my design. I came into College to spend extra time working on it and am really pleased with the final result.”

As well as seeing her design professionally printed and distributed, Verity-Ann was also presented with £30 of High Street vouchers by Principal Chris Webb.

We’re very proud to be circulating the card far and wide this festive season!
