Our school is delighted to be taking part in Royal Mail’s Heroes Stamp Design Competition, honouring the heroes of the coronavirus pandemic.
For more than 50 years Royal Mail’s Special Stamp programme has commemorated British history and achievement. Stamps have also been issued to honour the achievements of many people. Often, those who appear on stamps are already famous. They include scientists and explorers, writers, artists, musicians, athletes, and Prime Ministers.
We are asking you to become a young designer, and think about who your hero or heroes are, and to then design a stamp in their honour.
There are some amazing prizes for winning entries too!
If you would like to enter, please collect an official entry form, and letter, from the Admin Centre (in the Chapel foyer) during your breaktime.
Return your named entry to same office (we will post it for you) by Tuesday 25th May to allow time for posting. Please read the entry requirements on the official website carefully (there is a summary below).
Please also refer to more details of the ‘Entry Requirements’ on the official website:
Each entry must be hand drawn, must be completely original work and must not copy any other work. Unfortunately, drawings which copy other artwork will be disqualified. Drawings must be flat, so no collages, materials or textures. Please also avoid the use of fluorescent inks or highlighter pens.
Please use lots of colour (no black and white images!) and use up as much of the white space in their design as possible (inside the straight-lined box only)
Children may use drawing packages on a computer or tablet so long as no part of the design is computer enhanced or generated. So, for instance, the use of clip-art is not allowed. Entries in a digital format will not be accepted, so please draw your design directly onto the official competition entry form.
