Put your stamp on Christmas

Local primary school aged children are being urged to design this year's Royal Mail Christmas stamps as part of a competition backed by Montgomeryshire MP, Glyn Davies.

Royal Mail's Christmas Children's Stamp Art Competition is open to children aged four to 11 years of age and two winners will be picked from throughout the UK with their designs used on first and second class stamps during the festive period.

This year, the theme of the competition is ‘What does the Christmas season mean to you?’

The designs can be religious or secular. Schools and parents of home-schooled children can sign up to the competition online or by returning the postcard in a resource pack sent to them by iChild, the online educational resource centre, in association with Royal Mail.

Entries must be received by 19 July. The winners of the competition will be announced in September and the stamps will be available to buy in all Post Offices from November 5.

Mr Davies said: “The Royal Mail Christmas Children’s Stamp Art competition is a great way for children to express what Christmas means to them, and I hope that schools and pupils from Montgomeryshire are able to enter and come up with their own designs.

“I look forward to receiving cards this Christmas bearing stamps which have been designed by pupils from across the UK, and it would be fantastic if one of the winning designs came from Montgomeryshire.”
