The winners of the London 2022 International Stamp Exhibition have been revealed, following eight days of philatelic celebrations in the capital.

After years of planning amidst a worldwide pandemic, the London 2022 exhibition finally took place in the capital in February, and even a major storm couldn’t stop the show going ahead.

Opening on the day after Storm Eunice had battered the UK, the international event attracted collectors and exhibitors from around the world, though many had to endure travel disruption and hair-raising landings to reach a windstrewn London.

By the time the event opened, the weather had calmed, the many frames of exhibits had been assembled, and the philatelic celebrations could begin.
