Entries can now be prepared ready for the 2020 Stamp Active Competition. Entries will be displayed at the Autumn Stampex Exhibitions at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London, N1 0QH.

THE STAMP ACTIVE COMPETITION, sponsored by the Great Britain Philatelic Society and Stanley Gibbons Ltd, was introduced in 1998 in the national competitions to encourage new entrants. The equivalent of an “Open” class, it allows a minimum of four pages (rather than sixteen for the British Youth Stamp Championships) but can then be increased to up to 24 pages. It is judged on presentation and originality (not FIP rules). Medals are awarded in the same way as other competitions for every entry. There is a prize of £30 voucher for the winner in each class to be used for philatelic items. Second place wins £20 and third place £10. Additional Special prizes will be awarded at the discretion of the judges. This is a great way for young collectors to start their journey in stamp competitions. The best overall entry receives an additional £50.

Latest Date for submission of entry forms is: Friday 17th July 2020.

Closing Date for sending in your completed display is: Friday 24th July 2020.

Entries will be displayed at Autumn Stampex from 30th September to 3rd October 2020.

Please note there will be no Spring Stampex in 2020 because of the London 2020 International Exhibition in May.
