The judges selected this entry submitted by Linda Olofsson Walsh as the winner. She wins a one night stay at the Kensington Hotel, £200 worth of V&A Shop vouchers and one year’s V&A Membership for herself and a guest.

Olivia Horsfall Turner said:
‘One aspect of curating is about bringing objects together to reveal connections or to create narratives. For me, the surprising juxtaposition of divine angels with quotidian onions implies that the extraordinary can appear where you least expect it, and that also resonates with the message of Christmas.’
