Christmas Tree Photo Competition Results

Our Christmas tree photo competition was a resounding success with photos coming in from all parts of the globe. We’ve received entries from Germany, France, Greece, Mexico, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Poland and many other countries – and we’d like to say a big “thank you” to everyone who participated.


It was really difficult for us to choose the winner, but after some deliberations we decided to award the prize to Claire McCue – congratulations!


Apart from being lavishly and tastefully decorated and adorned by the perfectly vertical star (something that’s a challenge to maintain throughout the festive period!), her tree is full of stories. Claire told us:

I collect decorations from around the world, from places that I have visited, or occasionally gift from friends (e.g. the treble clef from New York and ballet dancer from Paris), so is full of memories every year!

Congratulations, Claire – you’ll be receiving a well-deserved present from us – a “Solo Piano” sheet music notebook by Chilly Gonzales.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our emails, Facebook and Twitter pages and, of course, our website for some more competitions and exclusive offers on sheet music, like these two carol collections:
