First ever RLWC2021 Christmas card winner announced

The inclusive arts project was open to those with care or support needs, with the winning design being chosen from a raft of fantastic entries.

In collaboration with our partner, Community Integrated Care, we are delighted to announce Yousef Ahmed and Kian Muse as the winners of our official RLWC2021 Christmas card competition.

The inclusive arts project was open to those with care or support needs, with the winning design being chosen from a raft of fantastic entries. 

After shortlisting five of their favourite designs, the joint panel, which included RLWC2021 Inclusion Ambassador, Oliver Thomason, and Women’s Game Ambassador, Jodie Cunningham, decided that the two winning submissions should be combined into one Christmas card due to the quality of each one.

The designs were chosen on their creativity and their ability to capture the essence of Christmas and RLWC2021, with Yousef’s entry incorporating a face mask wearing snowman. The two lucky winners, Kian, 10, and Yousef, 11, will now both receive an exclusive VIP RLWC2021 experience, as well as a RLWC2021 Christmas hat and stocking as sign of our gratitude for their efforts.

The winning design, which can be downloaded here (Right-Click > Save Image As) to send to your loved ones, will be shared with fans and stakeholders across Rugby League.

Jodie Cunningham, Ambassador and Community Engagement Lead, said:

“We are truly proud of this inclusive initiative.
“The competition was a unique opportunity for those with care and support needs to be a part of RLWC2021, and we were thrilled with the number of people that got involved.
“There were lots of brilliant entries and it was very difficult for the panel to choose a winner. In the end, we loved both Kian and Yousef’s designs so much that we felt we just had to combine the two.
“We send our congratulations to Yousef and Kian and we can’t wait to welcome them both to the World Cup in 2021.”
