Best Europa stamp 2010


As for the last 2 years, Hungary won again the Best Europa stamp contest organised by PostEurop. I don't have the number of votes for the Hungarian stamp but they won a close run with the stamp from Slovenia arriving 2nd and the stamp of Croatia arriving 3rd.

This on line voting seems very popular in Hungary as they won 3 times in a row !!

this 150.- 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 Vaduz, Liechtenstein on the 14th October.

The stamp has been selected via the internet ! All people could vote through PostEurop's website !

Here a link to the official PDF document published by PostEurop.

Here you can find the full list of winning stamps since the first contest in 2002 when Malta won.
