The Great British Postcards - Buy your limited edition set now!

We are delighted that The Big Issue Shop is selling a limited edition of the best entries from The Great British Postcard Competition - with profits to The Big Issue Foundation. So do buy your set of beautifully presented postcards now!

For over 150 years, Britain has cherished the postcard in all its many forms. From saucy seaside scenes to architectural icons, the postcard is the staple souvenir of any Brit’s holiday.

With that in mind, we thought what better way to express public opinion and flaunt the nation’s creative talent than through the wonderful medium of a postcard. Up and down the UK, we invited creatives to submit their artistic interpretation of Britain in 2017 for the chance to win £5,000. We received hundreds of entries with topics ranging from social and political issues to tea and scones, and of course, the weather!

All entries were showcased on 25 September 2017 at a star-studded event featuring punk legend John Lydon (Sex Pistols, PiL) and The Big Issue’s founder Lord John Bird.

This limited edition pack contains the very best entries for you to share with your nearest and dearest or cherish all to yourself. All profits generated from the sale of this pack go to The Big Issue Foundation to help people who are homeless take control of their lives and earn a legitimate income.
