From the Winter Olympics to the centenary of World War One, there are a wide range of subjects covered in the stamp schedules for 2014.

The Chinese Year of the Horse is first on many bureaux list of new stamps, while other subjects to be honoured include dinosaurs (Hong Kong), actor Charlton Heston (USA), and traditional musical instruments (this year's Europa stamps theme).

Great War commemorations

There will be many stamps issued to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One during the year.

Canada will look back on the Great War using a famous photograph with the poignant title 'Wait for me Daddy!' To be issued to coincide with Remembrance Day, the Canadian stamp will show the famous photo taken by Claude P. Dettloff on 1 October, 1940, which captured the moment Private Jack Bernard's son broke away from his mother to give his father a hug while he was marching with the British Columbia Regiment. The picture received extensive exposure and was used in war-bond drives.
