Handing Christmas stamps over to the public in 2013

2013 was only the third occasion in Royal Mail’s history that children have designed the Christmas stamps. Following the inaugural 1966 competition, the only other stamps designed by children were issued in 1981. Royal Mail received over 240,000 entries to the 2013 Christmas stamp design competition. Tasveer Shemza, the 1966 winner, was on the judging panel alongside HRH Prince Charles, Royal Mail’s Chief Executive Officer, Moya Greene, the author of the Charlie and Lola series, Lauren Child and Royal Mail’s Head of Stamp Design, Marcus James.
