Royal Mail Stamp Competition
The Royal Mail ‘Design A Christmas Stamp’ competition received an astonishing 239,374 entries from children across the UK. Children aged 4 to 11-years-old have been drawing, painting, colouring and crayoning in response to the question: ‘What Christmas means to you?’ including pupils from Rose Hill.
Two winning designs from children will be selected by a panel of judges, and their designs will appear on one of the 1st and one of the 2nd Class Christmas Stamps from this year’s range. As with all ‘Special Stamps’ issued by Royal Mail, both winning designs will have to be approved by The Queen. Only twice before in the company’s history has the official Christmas stamp been designed by school children, previously in 1966 and 1981.
The two winners will follow in the footsteps of highly acclaimed children’s’ designers and illustrators who have designed Christmas Stamps in the past, such as Axel Scheffler (2012), Nick Park (2010), Quentin Blake (1993) and Michael Foreman (1987).
L de Wet and O Heller were selected as one of 120 area winners from 12 regions across the UK. O Heller was then selected as one of two area winners chosen from the region. She joins 24 winners going into the grand final.
The winners of the competition will be announced in the autumn and the stamps will be available to buy from 5 November 2013.
