The British Youth Stamp Championships are kindly sponsored by Stanley Gibbons. The entries in the 2013 competition were judged by Christine Earle, Brian Asquith and Richard West, with thanks to The Royal Philatelic Society London for providing the facilities. The exhibits are on display at Autumn Stampex.
