On the first day of Christmas…

You all did so well with the Chevening Treasure Hunt that we wanted to bring you a new team challenge to complete in the 12 days between 25 December and 5 January.

The challenge is simple:

You must work with your existing red or blue team to create one image (or one video) which shows the theme of each day listed below. As a team, you will decide on your submission for each of the themes but do not post them yet… you’ll be asked to submit your completed 12 days of Christmas challenge in January.

Each team will submit one full collection of work to the communications team via email (or WeTransfer link) and we will release them on social media to compete against the other teams submission for the same theme. The Chevening community will decide on the ultimate winning team by voting for their favourite from each day.

There are just three rules:

  1. Your submission must be a team effort. The same few people cannot create the submissions for each days theme.
  2. Don’t let the other team see what you’ve created (otherwise they can take your idea).
  3. Have fun! Be as creative as possible and have fun with the themes.
