Stamp Active Competition 2015



Entries are now invited for the 2015 Stamp Active Competition. Entries are displayed at the Spring Stampex Exhibition at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London, N1 0QH from 18th to 21st February 2015.

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 eight 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 £25 and a trophy for the winner in each class. This is a great way for young collectors to start their journey in stamp competitions.

Latest Date for submission of entry forms is: Friday 19th January 2015.

Closing Date for sending in your completed display is: Friday 23rd January 2015

Examples of previous winning entries can be found on the Competition Page with additional information on how to prepare a stamp entry (see Have A Go, Show!)
