Firstly we want to wish a Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all! Back in early December, we asked you all to enter our competition to design the Byrdie e-card that would sit on our Instagram channel on Christmas day. A big thank you for all your amazing entries. But (drum roll, please) we have a winner. Raise your (Christmas) glass of prosecco...

Our winner is Becki Mawby. Becki's design not only kept within our Byrdie roots of pale pinks and clean cut lines—it also embodies all things beauty, and we love it. Make sure you check out our Instagram for the to see Becki's design up close.

Amy Beager's illustration impressed us so much. Can we look like this IRL, please? Make sure you check out her website and Instagram to see more of her beautiful work. 

Hania Bartos' adorable design made us feel seriously festive. Plus, who doesn't love unwrapping a bit of Chanel beauty on Christmas day? 

 

Calling all beauty obsessives and illustrators, we need your help this Christmas. We already know how many talented beauty illustrators and photographers there are out there because you all tag us in your Instagram posts—which is why this year, we're asking you to help us design our very own Byrdie Beauty Christmas e-card. 

The design should include the words "Merry Christmas from all of us at Byrdie UK" somewhere and have "byrdie.co.uk" at the bottom. 

We'd love for you to interpret Byrdie UK as you like, whether that's a glamorous vanity set up or a festive flat lay. It could be a detailed illustration or a beautiful photo—obviously the more festive, the better. Take a look at last year's design to get an idea of what we mean.

One lucky winner will not only have their e-design sent out to all our wonderful contacts via email on Christmas, but they'll also see it shared on our Instagram on Christmas day. Plus, the winner will receive a handpicked beauty bag worth over £100. 

The runner-ups will also be featured alongside our winner on the website. 

how can you enter? 

Send your beauty-themed design to byrdieuk@byrdie.com. They need to be square shaped (1000 x 1000 for Instagram, at 300dpi max if you're creating an illustration) and tie in with the Byrdie UK Instagram look and feel. Take a look at our Instagram @byrdiebeauty.uk for inspiration.

Last entries can be filed on midnight December 1, and we'll be announcing the winners on December 5. We can't wait to see what you come up with. Good luck.
