15/January One page competition 2023
Austrian Post, enabled by their Special Agent Les Ashton-Smith, stole the show at our annual One-Page competition. Their stamp production, following the run on toilet rolls during the Covid pandemic, demonstrated their sense of humour. Light-heartedly, but also commemorating respectfully, the world-wide tragedy of the pandemic, the stamps were designed and issued on toilet rolls, miniature Covid masks and sticking plasters. In the words of Alexander Armstrong on Pointless, it “saw off all the opposition.” Image shows previous winner Neil, on the viewers left, presenting the trophy to Les.
