Stanley Gibbons have announced their continuing support for the Stamp Active Network with sponsorship of the 2017 national youth stamp competitions. They have been regular supporters of the competitions since 2000 when the British Youth Stamp Championships were first launched. Commenting on this year’s sponsorship, Claudia Cadete, Marketing Manager, said “Stanley Gibbons are delighted to continue to promote youth stamp collecting through Stamp Active. The Championships are the premier event for serious young philatelists with the very best going on to represent the UK in international exhibitions. The standards have been high in recent years and there have been an increased number of first -time entrants”.

Young collectors can begin with the one page competition, progress to the Stamp Active Competition with a minimum of 4 pages and then go on to Championship level with a minimum of 16 pages. The entries in the 2017 British Youth Stamp Championships will be on display at Autumn Stampex along with the entries for the My Favourite Things one page national competition.
