Christmas at Barnsley


Mayor Oliver Coppard needs your help to create his Christmas card!

He’s calling on budding photographers from across South Yorkshire to submit a picture – old or new - encapsulating what they love the most about our region. 

The possibilities are endless – from beautiful landscapes and green spaces to world-leading manufacturing, nationally-acclaimed theatre, creative industries, pioneering education facilities, unique food and drink, inspiring people within our communities, something that represents our heritage and history, and much more. We want to see what South Yorkshire means to you and we want to celebrate that. 

The winning entry will be used as the design for this year’s Christmas card which will be sent out by the mayor to hundreds of stakeholders across the region. 

To enter, please email your submission to along with your name, telephone number and a brief description or background information about your entry.
