Post Europ held its fourth EUROPA Jury Competition at PostEurop’s Headquarters. Eight philately experts were invited to join the 2013 jury and judge the fifty-six EUROPA Stamps based on their expert opinion. Three rounds of voting and much deliberation were necessary for the group of experts chaired by Dr. Guy Coutant to proudly announce Itella Posti from Finland as the winner of the 2013 EUROPA stamp Jury Prize.
EUROPA Stamps:Since 1956, EUROPA stamps have been a symbol of Europe’s desire for closer integration and cooperation. These special stamps are issued by the European postal administrations/enterprises and bears the EUROPA logo, a PostEurop registered trademark. Since 1993, PostEurop has been the responsible organisation for issuing EUROPA stamps and each year, philately experts within the Philately working group organize the competition amongst other philately initiatives.
