Children throughout the Cairns region were invited to create a festive image to be used for Council's Christmas eCard!
The theme for 2017 is Santa snorkels the reef. The competition was open to residents of the Cairns Regional Council local government area who are aged 13 years and under.
The competition was separated into three age categories (under 5 years, 6-9 years and 10-13 years) with the three winners to be invited to switch on the lights on Cairns Esplanade Christmas Tree on Friday 1 December 2017 at 5:30pm.
The design selected as the overall winner will be announced on the night and will become the official 2017 Cairns Regional Council eCard.
Entries are displayed in the Cairns Regional Council Administration Building ground floor reception, where they will remain throughout the Christmas period.
Competition is now closed and the 3 age category winners have been chosen!
