Brilliant Britain Winners 2013

This year’s competition was based on the fact that British stamps tell us a lot about Great Britain e.g. its history, its culture, its geography, its people, its plants and its animals.

Young people in Primary School, up to the age of 12 (on 1st September), created a one page mini-exhibit about some aspect of Britain.  There are three age groups – Up to 7; 8-9; 10-12 – with prizes being awarded (for First, Second, Third and Runners up) in each age group, sponsored by Stanley Gibbons Ltd. The entries are judged on knowledge of the subject, originality and presentation.
The winners of the 2013 Brilliant Britain competition have been announced.

Age 8 & 9:

Commenting on the 2013 entries, Chairman, John Davies, said “It is great to see so many young people taking part this year. The range of subjects chosen was extremely varied with much more creative flair being shown than is usual in a stamp competition. Congratulations to everyone who took part.”
