Do you like to draw? Do you like to paint? Maybe your inner artist likes to use some other medium. It doesn't matter what medium as long as you create something with a Horsey Christmas inspired theme for our Christmas Card Design Competition. 

UPDATE: Entries are now open to all Tasmanians of all ages, as well as past and present RDA riders, their families and volunteers of RDA Tasmania no matter where in the World you are.


The theme is a Horsey Christmas. It can be in any medium you choose, as long as it can easily be reproduced on an A6 size card.

Judging will take place during National RDA Awareness Week, which is from Monday 27 July – Sunday 2 August 2020. The most popular five designs chosen by our panel of judges will be used to create Christmas cards that will be used by RDA Tasmania and will also be sold for fund raising.

  • 1st prize – $50 Gift Voucher, plus a set of the 5 wining Christmas cards
