HK Post launches new student stamp design competition
If you're a stamp enthusiast, this news is for you. Draw inspiration from your stamp collection at home and enter the annual Hong Kong Post stamp design competition.
The 12th Inter-School Stamp Exhibits Competition is open to all primary, secondary and university students. You can enter individually or with a group of up to four.
Entries will be divided into age groups of below 12; 12 to 15; and 16 and above. Depending on your age group, you can submit up to five frames - a frame is the design for a stamp series, including the first-day cover. Each frame should include 16 standard-sized album pages (four by four), with a size of 23cm by 29cm.
Participants should also submit a written explanation with their designs.
The winner in the individual category will win a trophy, a serviced first-day cover and HK$3,000 book coupon. The winner of the school awards will take home a trophy and a deluxe version of the 2011 Prestige Annual Stamp Album.
Applications close on May 25. Participants have to submit their designs on August 4. Visit www.hongkongpoststamps.com/eng/youth_corner/competition.
