Christmas Stamp Design Competition

Royal Mail Christmas Stamp Design Competition Website

About

This year, Royal Mail set children across the UK the very important task of designing Christmas stamps for 2013. The two winners were  chosen and the designs by Molly Robson, aged 7, and Rosie Hargreaves will now feature on our First and Second Christmas stamps for 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. 

Check the website to see when the competition opens again for 2014.
