We’re starting to get photos of houses sent in now – we want loads more so we can choose our winners.
Its easy to enter: Simply make a creative house using a basic kit and then send us a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org – and you could be in with a chance to win.
We have four categories:
Adult – Beautiful: This is the main award. The most beautiful house you can make from a very basic kit of gingerbread house.
Adult – Super Creative. This is the crazy house – like the house eaten by dragons, murder scenes, brothels, discos – whatever you can do to pimp up your house to silly standards with great use of imagination.
Child – up to 7 years old. It’s okay that you Mum and Dad help out, but here we do want to see real kids efforts. We know what seven year olds can do with a ginger bread kit – we want to see kids being allowed to unleash creativity. It’s fine to add Lego men and other toys to the mix or make a gingerbread house for your favourite dolls.
Young person 8-16 – We want to see your imagination run wild here. Make the house your own.
THIS YEAR’S PRIZES:
First prize this year in category ‘beautiful’ is £50 online OR in-store voucher for ScandiKitchen, a signed copy of our cookbook and one of our fancy new mugs.
Adult – Creative – prize – A hamper full of goodies and treats plus a signed cookbook.

Young person 8-16 prize: Sweeties. And more Sweeties. So many sweeties your Mum will be quite annoyed with us all the way through till January, probably.

From Victoria Wiksen – Adult – Creative – she says: “This year’s gingerbread house turned out rather structurally unsound – it is Einstürzende Neubauten (‘Collapsing New Buildings’ for those less into their German industrial music).
