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?
