Stamp Active Spring Competition Results

Richard West, David Armitage and Brian Asquith at the judging

Once again the judges in the Stamp Active Competition for Spring 2018 were impressed by the ingenuity and diversity shown through the exhibits. However, it would be good to see more entries particularly from areas of the UK that were once so active in promoting collecting among the young. The entries in the Stamp Active Competition, sponsored by the Great Britain Philatelic Society, were judged by Dave Armitage, Brian Asquith and Richard West, at the premises of The Royal Philatelic Society London. Thanks to The Philatelic Traders’ Society, they were exhibited at Spring Stampex International.

The results are:

The overall best entry and the best entry in Class D is Animals in Books and Films by Jessica Corbett. The best entry in Class C is Wales by Max Fenn.

The Schools Trophy is won by Prendergast Junior School in Haverfordwest.
