The hunt is on once again to find a picture for a Christmas card which will be sent out to a host of politician and dignitaries, including Prime Minister David Cameron.
The Maidenhead Advertiser is once again teaming up with Maidenhead and Twyford MP Theresa May for a competition for children to design a Christmas card which will be sent to her many important contacts over the festive period.
The competition was launched by Mrs May on Friday, with the theme of 'what I like about Christmas'.
Children under 11 are being encouraged to come up with creative original designs to catch the eye of the MP when she judges the entries next month.
"We normally get a huge variety and a really huge number of entries and I hope the same will be true this year," said Mrs May.
"Normally I get a real diversity of pictures."
The Home Secretary said what youngsters draw for the theme is up to them and added: "It's great for children to be able to show their skills and talent and I hope they all enjoy entering the competition."
Last year, Courthouse Junior School pupil Rucha Potdukhe's image of a smiling snowman came out on top in the competition, which had a 'my best Christmas' theme.
Entries for this year's competition should be marked Theresa May's Christmas Card and sent to Maidenhead Advertiser, 48 Bell Street, Maidenhead, SL6 1HX.
They should also include the name, age and school of the entrant and a daytime contact number for their parent or guardian.
Entries close on Thursday, November 14.
