For UKCPS Members only

Emma Kerridge is fulfilling a dream to create a wall of Trading Cards in coloured pencil at our 20th Anniversay Gala. She would love all members to create and send a card to her and the full instructions are below:

  1. A Trading Card is 2.5 x 3.5 inches (63 x 89mm) and the paper should be minimum 300gsm. Note all renewing postal members will be sent a free card (sponsored by The Coloured Pencil Shop) with their membership cards during April/May. If you are not eligible for a free card (eg digital member or new member who joined between November 2020 and February 2021) you may supply your own card to the specifications shown or send an SAE to Liz Ridley, 63 Hilden Park Road, Hildenborough, Tonbridge, TN11 9BW for a free one.

  2. Create a card based around the theme of ‘Celebrating 20 Years of Coloured Pencils’. This could be how that makes you feel, your favourite subject to draw in coloured pencils etc. The cards must be 100% coloured pencil and in landscape format. You can use a reference picture that is not your own, but please make sure you have full permission from the photographer.

  3. When you have created your card make a scan or take a photo and complete a short form and send us a digital version of your card.  This is for our online gallery that will display the cards for those who cannot get to the exhibition.

    Submission is free but there is an option to pay a fee - £5 UK members/£7 overseas members - if you would like to receive a card in return as part of the Grand Swap at the end of the exhibition. 

  4. Send your card to Emma at the address below. Ensure your name and membership number are written on the back.

    If you have paid to receive a card back, enclose a stamped, addressed envelope so the card can be posted to you at the end of the exhibition.
    Send to: Emma Kerridge, 6 Prittlewell Close, Ipswich, IP2 9SP
