As last year, it's Hungary who won the Best Europa stamp contest organized by PostEurop. It was an easy victory with 270 votes more than second Malta !
It's also amusing to see that one third of the voters were Hungarian... that may explain the final result.
this 230.- HUF stamp is in fact part of a pair of stamps issued tête-bêche in a souvenir sheet of four stamps.
The Best Europa stamp design competition is a yearly event that takes place during the Plenary Assembly of PostEurop. The first competition took place in 2002. All official Europa stamp issues can enter the competition.
The result of this competition was announced during the Plenary Assembly in Bled, Slovenia on the 8th October.
The stamp has been selected via the internet ! All people could vote through PostEurop's website !
Here you can find the full list of winning stamps since the first contest in 2002 when Malta won.
Maybe later this year, if I have time, I'll organize our own contest on this blog.
