Stamp collections issued by the Cyprus Post for 2010, 2011 and 2012 have won first prize at the 10th International Philatelic Competition, held under the auspices of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) in St. Petersburg, Russia.

According to an official press release, a special committee, comprising judges and stamp designers, evaluated the exhibition card stamps of each participating country and awarded the first prize to Cyprus stamp collections for 2010, 2011 and 2012.

This distinction provides for a Gold Medal and a Certificate to the first group of exhibition card stamps for countries that issue less than thirty stamps every year.

“This honorary distinction highlights once again the high quality of Cyprus’ stamp editions,” it is added.
