Mayor Sharon Gaetz presents 2010 winner Gary Zerbe with a $250 prize and framed print of his artwork.


t's that time of year when we all start thinking about ... Christmas? Yes, the City of Chilliwack is now accepting entries for our annual Christmas card contest! The winning design will receive $250 and will be used as Mayor and Council's Christmas card this season.

"There are so many talented artists in our community," said Mayor Sharon Gaetz. "We look forward to this contest each year, but it is always difficult to only be able to choose one design."

The theme for entries is 'Christmas in Chilliwack' and the contest is open to all ages. Artists must reside in the City of Chilliwack in order to be eligible for the contest. City of Chilliwack employees and their immediate family members are ineligible for this contest. All submissions will be juried by Chilliwack Council, who will choose their ten favourites. City of Chilliwack staff will vote for their favourite design from the top ten. The winner of the 2011 Christmas card contest will be announced at the December 6, 2011 Council meeting at 7pm.

Submission forms with a complete list of rules are available online at or can be picked up at City Hall reception.

All submissions must be received at City Hall no later than Friday, October 14, 2011 at 4:30 pm.
