Royal Mail Christmas Stamp Competition 2017

RoyalMail logo    RoyalMailCompetition    


Once again, Royal Mail are running their prestigious competition, for primary school pupils, to design stamps for 2017! This follows the hugely popular 2013 competition, where Royal Mail received 240,000 entries!


The competition theme:

'What does the Christmas season mean to you?'


Children can design an image that best describes the festive period, to them.

Two lucky winners will have their stamps made into 1st and 2nd class stamps - the winning designs will be approved by Her Royal Majesty, the Queen.

These stamps will be seen by thousands of people, not just in the UK but possibly around the world, too!


The competition has only run in 1966, 1981 and 2013.

Here are some of the winning designs:
