My Favourite Things Winners 2017

This national one-page competition, organised by Stamp Active, was held for the second time this year, sponsored by Isle of Man Stamps & Coins. The number of entries is increasing and this is very encouraging. It is good to see many new names entering a national competition for the first time. It is hoped that many of these young collectors will add to their display to allow them to take it forward to the Stamp Active Competition at Spring Stampex in February 2018. In the three age groups – Up to 7; 8-9; 10-12 –prizes are being awarded (for First, Second, Third ) in each age group, sponsored by Isle of Man Stamps & Coins. Winners will receive philatelic gifts selected by Isle of Man Stamps & Coins website to the value of £25 (1st), £20 (2nd) and £15 (3rd). The best overall entry will receive a prize valued at £40.
