Just A Card sponsor offers £500 prize for Black Friday alternative Indie Week


A brand-new website is up for grabs in Just A Card’s competition for Indie Week – which kicks off on Monday, 20 November.

And the prize is worth over £500 for an indie business to have either a new website, or 12 months’ hosting and support for an existing WordPress site thanks to the Week’s sponsor LocallyUK.

Just A Card’s Indie Week is the colourful independent retail alternative to Black Friday bringing together the community to shout about the importance of valuing and buying from artists, makers, individual shops and small businesses during the crucial Christmas period.

And the competition is open for entry all through Indie Week, which runs from Monday to Friday, 20-24 November, with Just A Card founder Sarah Hamilton explaining: “We’re delighted to welcome back LocallyUK as this year’s sponsor, and they’re kindly running this fantastic competition to coincide with their sponsorship.

“They are fantastic at building meaningful websites to help you get discovered and to promote and sell what you do so you are in excellent hands to bring your online dream to life. If it’s not for you, why not nominate an independent business instead – what business do you use that could benefit from a website?”

Entries close at 10pm on 24 November, and the winner will be announced after the Just A Card and Handmade Hour Christmas Fair ends on 5 December – the pair have partnered up for the second edition on the online event, which also starts on Monday, as a dedicated space to buy from independents.

Sarah founded the grassroots Just A Card campaign after hearing an indie shop plead that buying “just a card” would have stopped them from closing, and it is supported by UKCricutBritish Independent Retailers AssociationFunding CircleScotland’s Trade FairThe GCATop DrawerThe Art FileThe Design TrustMade by Cooper, and Cardgains buying group.

To support the campaign’s work, it has just launched a new Christmas enamel lapel pin for sale in addition to the classic pin, both available from the website at £12, and designed by artist and greeting card publisher Angela Chick.
