The Challenge


Bondi is starting to swarm with sunburnt backpackers. Dresses can be worn into the wee hours of warm spring night, and your Christmas Cocktail playlist is ready for another run...almost. To celebrate our unique, warm, Aussie christmas we’re asking you to create distinctly Australian Christmas cards inspired from the things you love about our warm festive season. Have fun with this one - speedos, sunscreen, BBQ’s, beaches, wine, surf & turf, friends, family… we want to see what you’re fav parts of Christmas in Australia are.

Designs must have customisable type (e.g. Merry Christmas, xx the Stevens Family). Customisable type can be on the front of the card, inside the card, or, both. 

Oh! Great news - all designers whose designs are voted to be listed on Paperlust will receive 10 prints of their design to share with friends and family this Christmas.
