Voting for the fourth annual CSN Cover Contest is underway today at 5:30 p.m. (ET).
Beginning this summer, individuals and organizations at the local, regional and national levels in Canada and abroad were invited to submit covers promoting National Stamp Collecting Month. In response to readers’ suggestions, the month-long philatelic celebration – which has fallen by the wayside in recent decades – is now the contest’s cornerstone.
In addition to the new “National Stamp Stamp Collecting Month” category, the contest’s two original competitions – one for individuals (the “Collector” category) and another for clubs (the “Club” category) – are also taking place.
CSN received 12 covers for this year’s contest—three in the National Stamp Collecting Month category, another three in the Club category and six in the Collector category.
All submitted entries will be posted on the Cover Contest webpage later today when voting begins. The submissions will also be published in CSN Vol. 46 #14 (dated Oct. 25).
People can vote for their favourite submissions in each category online through October. The voting deadline is Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. (ET).
On Nov. 1, CSN will announce the winners online. The results will also be published in CSN Vol. 46 #16 (dated Nov. 23).
