Christmas Stamp Competition – 2013

In 2013 Royal Mail set children across the UK the very important task of designing this year’s Christmas stamps.

The two winners have now been chosen and the designs by Molly Robson, aged 7, and Rosie Hargreaves will now feature on our First and Second Christmas stamps.

Christmas 1st - 2013 Christmas 2nd - 2013

Their fantastic designs were chosen from 240,000 entries and were selected by a panel of judges including His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

We’ve also created a gallery to showcase the amazing pictures we received from children across the UK, aged 4-11 years-old, in response to the question ‘What does the Christmas season mean to you?’.

Produce a new TV advert for Royal Mail

Overview

This resource gets student’s thinking about marketing activities that happen on a day to day level at Royal Mail and also the services that the Royal Mail offer. You can set your students an activity where they are required to create a new TV advert for Royal Mail’s postal service. The advert could be 30 seconds long and could be based around one of the following scenarios.

  1. A customer has just purchased a product online and is having it delivered to their home, but they are only going to be home until 12 noon.
  2. A family member is sending another family member a Birthday card, and wants it to get their quickly.

 

Alternatively you can create your own scenarios for students.

The aim is for students to:

  1. Produce a small research report on the different postal services available to businesses and others.
  2. Decide with justification which postal service they are going to choose for there scenario.
  3. Produce a small script or movie board for the advert.
