Artwork will be judged by Tony Meuuwissen, who has had his artwork featured on Royal Mail stamps several times!
The exciting news is that the exhibition has been extended to 5 weeks, from the 30th April - 5th June 2012! So anyone submitting this means your work will be seen by even more of the 110,000 visitors the space has annually!
The down side means to ensure the publication is ready for the exhibition the deadline to submit has to be brought forward to the 20th April 2012, any work received after this date will still go into the exhibition and online but cannot guarantee entry in the publication.
Calling all artists, photographers, illustrators, writers, animators, fashion designers, poets, the list goes on….all mediums are encouraged to design the artwork for a stamp, which explores the theme ‘Best of Britain’.
What comes to mind when you think of Britain? What stuck out from a visit to Great Britain? What do you imagine Britain is like? What makes you British? What is the Best of Britain?
