The 2023 Postcard Competition is OPEN
Since 2010 Festival Postcards has donated over £5000 to Amnesty International and it is all thanks to your fantastic photos.
In 2019 we opened up the competition to artists, designers and poets, and it was brilliant! So let’s do it again.
Postcards need to encapsulate a moment, they serve to send a message, they are more than just a card. This year we are welcoming entries from artists, designers, poets and photographers who would like to see their work on a postcard being sold at Glastonbury.
What makes a great postcard is not always the same as what makes a great poster, painting, family picture... I don't know the answer, all I do know is that I know it when I see it.
Email your work inspired by Glastonbury Festival and win the opportunity to see them printed as postcards and sent from the festival! A donation of 10p for each winning postcard sold at the festival will be given to Amnesty International.
Image size: 111mm x 154mm (this includes a 3mm bleed area that will be chopped in the printing process)
Deadline Midnight Monday 22nd May 2023
Email your images to [email protected] Please include your name and little more about the image. You can submit as many pictures as you like!
We have just 2 no nos:
1: No pictures of children

From the very beginning of Amnesty International in 1961, people have written letters on behalf of victims of human rights abuses. Today, hundreds of thousands of ordinary people throughout the world challenge cruelty and injustice by taking a few minutes to write a letter.
Glastonbury festival gives us all an opportunity to engage in a few days of freedom, expression and creativity. Since 1982 Festival Postcards has been offering festival goers an opportunity to share their tales of fun and frolics by sending a postcard from the festival.
