Sending birthday greetings to Cyw

Send your greetings through the website, or by emailing a photo, date of birth and greeting to cyw@s4c.cymru

If you know someone who's celebrating their birthday soon why not send them a greeting here? Remember to send us your greetings at least two weeks before the date of the birthday.

It's always best to submit the clearest photo possible. Bear in mind that the photo will be increased in size to be shown on television, so smaller files can lose quality and end up difficult or impossible to use. We've put the quick tips below together to help you choose the best photo and avoid disappointment. If the photo isn't of good enough quality, unfortunately, we won't be able to use it.

Make sure the child's whole head is in the picture, from the top of the head down to the chin.

If the child has curly or frizzy hair, try and tame it, or at least make sure it's all in the frame.

Make sure the photo is in focus.

Try and avoid red eyes at any time.

Photos for Pen-blwydd Pwy? work best if the child is facing the camera full face, not looking or turning the head to one side.

A plain background works best for Pen-blwydd Pwy? but it's not essential.

The minimum size for photos is: 600 x 800px and resolution 300dpi – think of it as the quality of a 7 x 5cm photo from back in the day when we used to print photos!

Remember to send us your greetings at least two weeks before the date of the birthday, and your photo could appear on television.
