The winners of Jersey Post’s Design a Stamp competition have been announced, after their designs received the royal seal of approval from Buckingham Palace.

Launched in October of last year, this exciting island-wide competition offered budding artists of all ages the opportunity to design a real Jersey stamp. The theme of the competition was ‘My Jersey’ and islanders were asked to create designs which best illustrate what Jersey means to them.

Over 220 inspired islanders took up their paintbrushes, pens, pencils and cameras to submit an entry, all of which were reviewed by a panel of judges made up of Tim Brown, Chief Executive Officer at Jersey Post; Jeremy Swetenham, Commercial Director at Jersey Heritage; Pat Robson, Director at Art in the Frame at The Harbour Gallery and local artist, Nick Parlett.

It was a real pleasure to be one of the judges for the 'Design a Stamp' competition”, comments Nick. “Designs submitted using paint, colouring pencils, felt tips, collage and photography provided a diverse mix of entries to consider and it was fascinating to see the different approaches and styles. Well done to all entrants.”

All Jersey stamps go through a royal approval process and following the judging, the ten winning designs were sent to Buckingham Palace for consideration by Her Majesty The Queen.

The winning designs will feature on Jersey’s Local Letter and UK Priority Letter stamps from 9 November 2015. For islanders who’d like a sneak preview, the designs will be on display at The Harbour Gallery in St Aubin, Jersey from Friday 17 July 2015.
