Best Europa stamp 2014 - Public prize

Serbia

Serbia wins the Best Europa stamp contest - 2014 organised by PostEurop. Last year winner, Turkey finished second and Greece lands on the third place.
  1. SERBIA  
  2. TURKEY       
  3. GREECE



this 74.- RSD stamp is part of a two stamp set.

It's the first time Serbia wins this contest.

The Best Europa stamp design competition is a yearly event. The first competition took place in 2002. All official Europa stamp issues can enter the competition.

The result of this competition was announced during this PostEurop's Plenary Assembly in San Marino, on the 24th September.

The stamp has been selected via the internet ! All people could vote through PostEurop's website !
Anita Häggblom, Chair of the PostEurop Stamps and Philately working group from Posten Ǻland said about this years result :

"The public votes received almost equalled to those of last year's competition but what was remarkable to note how close the votes were between each entry."

A jury of 9 members (stamp designers, philatelic design directors) awarded earlier this year, the Best Europa stamp - Jury prize to Belgium !

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