The votes for the latest All About Stamps Competition have been collated, the three finalists confirmed, and the winner has now been decided. Congratulations to Wayne Cox for his winning entry on ‘The other side of GB stamps’.
The recent one-page competition challenged collectors around the world to produce a one-page entry using British stamps, with the overall winner receiving the All About Stamps Medal.
The top three entries were:
- Wayne Cox - ‘The other side of GB stamps’
- Colin Clark - ‘Mr Abbot’s Big Idea’
- Phil Seymour - King Edward VIII
Editor Matt Hill said:
‘Once again we were delighted with the response to the competition, with entries coming from collectors around the world. The theme of GB stamps is always popular and the quality of the entries was fantastic, making judging the entries a very difficult process.
'Congratulations to Wayne, and to everyone who entered, we’re now looking forward to seeing the entries for the competition, which invites one-page displays using modern stamps. I can’t wait to see what subjects are covered!’

As mentioned by Matt, the next All About Stamps Competition has now been launched as part of the recent Collectors’ Conference on Modern Stamps.
The Competition challenges collectors around the world to produce a one-page entry using modern stamps – we’re limiting the stamps you can use to those issued during or after the year 2000, with the overall winner receiving the All About Stamps Medal and a selection of modern stamps from around the world.
