Royal Mail is running an amazing national art competition for primary school pupils to design stamps for Christmas 2013.

Two lucky winners will see their designs on one of the 1st or one of the 2nd Class Christmas Stamps from this year’s range.

Only twice before has Royal Mail run a competition like this – in 1966 and 1981 – so this is the first opportunity for more than 30 years for school pupils to design an official Royal Mail Christmas stamp.

The competition theme is ‘What does the Christmas season mean to you?’ and so the children can design an image that best describes what the festive holiday period means to them.

This is a prize that money cannot buy, and will be a huge honour for the winners and their schools. The winning designs will be approved by Her Majesty the Queen, and used on millions of Christmas cards during the festive season.

It is also a fun and engaging art lesson activity for children aged 4 to 11 years, and great prizes must be won too!

£1,000 prizes for overall winners and their schools.
