About International Letter Writing Competition

Since 1971, the UPU has encouraged young writers aged 9-15 to write letters on a given theme to win exciting prizes. The competition is an excellent way of making young people aware of the important role postal services play in our societies. It develops their skills in composition and their ability to express thoughts clearly. It also fosters enjoyment of letter writing and helps strengthen the bonds of international friendship.

 

The UPU’s secretariat, the International Bureau, chooses a theme annually and publicizes it each year. Participating countries then organize the competition at the national level through the Post, often with the support of the educational authorities and media.

 

Recognizing safety as a critical component of its mission and in support of the UN Second Decade of Action for Road Safety, the UPU, in partnership with the UN Road Safety Fund (UNRSF), will hold its 52nd International Letter-Writing Competition in 2023 under the theme:

 

“Imagine you are a super hero and your mission is to make all roads around the world safer for children. Write a letter to someone explaining which super powers you would need to achieve your mission.”

 

Visual support material as well as promotional assets including posters in multiple languages, competition rules, social media cards, hashtags and sample messaging can be downloaded from this Trello board: https://bit.ly/ilwc2023 (continuously updated).

 

An international jury complied by the International Bureau judges the letters and selects the overall winners and candidates that merit a special mention.

 

Compositions must be in the form of a letter and contain the elements of a letter (heading, greeting, body, complimentary close, signature line and postscript (optional).

 

Entries must adhere strictly to the theme and not exceed 800 words in the original language.

 

Submitted letters must be accompanied by a cover letter, entry form and high quality picture of the winner.

 

At the national level, the competition is organized by UPU member countries, which present one winning letter to the international jury convened by the UPU. Entries must reach the UPU International Bureau no later than 5 May each year.

 

A more detailed guide for international level submissions can be found below.
