Maddie from Cleobury Mortimer makes it to final Royal Mail’s Christmas Stamp Design Competition
A YOUNG designer from Cleobury Mortimer has has reached the final of the Royal Mail’s Christmas Stamp Design Competition.
Maddie Meredith, aged 10, is a pupil at Cleobury Mortimer Primary School and her design was chosen as one of the best entries from thousands across the West Midlands. She is one of 12 shortlisted in the region and 140 nationwide.
Her entry will go through to the next stage of the competition, where judges will select their top two entries to represent the region in the national final.
Her work has caught the eye and earned the cong ratulations of Ludlow MP Philip Dunne.
“Maddie should be really proud of her achievement,” said Mr Dunne.
“There were more than 240,000 entries to design this year’s Christmas stamps, so to be one of only 140 UK-wide is an outstanding result.
“Maddie’s artistic flair is indicative of the excellent talent of Shropshire pupils, and I wish her the best of luck with her Christmas pudding drawing in the next stages of the competition.”
During the national final, The Prince of Wales will lead a panel of judges to select the two designs from 24 finalists that will feature on this year’s first and second class Christmas stamps, which will be on sale from early November.
Entries submitted to the competition will be displayed on a special website at royalmailstampcompetition.com, which will be launching later this week.
