A Skipton Advent Calendar

Christmas Calendar

Calling all Skipton artists, photographers, writers and filmmakers!  We want to showcase the town’s creative side this festive period with our very own Skipton Advent Calendar.

The Twelve Ways Of Christmas…

Our Christmas wish this year is to receive twelve pieces of art, photography, writing or short film (under a minute) that best captures what Christmas truly means to you.  Perhaps it’s a picture from your childhood or a snap of Skipton under snowfall.  A seasonal sketch or painting, maybe, or a short video with friends and family.  Or perhaps a wintry word or two best sums it up – a poem or short piece of prose.

Whichever way your Christmas creativity best shows itself, we don’t mind – we just want it to encapsulate what this merry season most means to you.


Our plan is for each of the twelve pieces we accept to feature on the site on one of the twelve days leading up the big day.  And to go with your Christmas creation, we’d love you to provide us with a short explanation as to why it’s important to you and what inspired you to send it to us.  Oh, and please include a short biography of yourself, including whereabouts in Skipton (or the neighbouring area) you’re from.

So come on, Skipton, show us what this time of year really means to you by emailing your advent calendar creation to ben@theskiptonpress.co.uk.
