The Summer season is officially over and that means back to indoor activities. It is still unseasonably hot [at least in London] despite the shorter days.
SPS submitted our Contact magazine to the literary competition and we were awarded a large silver!
Whilst contact has won several awards for its quality and contents it has always been bronze.
Well done to our editor Gwynne Harris for raising the bar; -and to all the contributing members who make the magazine so special.
I think that any member who does contribute with articles and submissions can now proudly be allowed to brag proudly on how they contribute to an award winning magazine.
In addition, articles, short and long, of a historical nature and then uploaded to our website as stand-alone items even if they were published in several parts in Contact for the members to view the article in full as one stand alone item
Fancy joining this award winning club? Gwynne is always looking for more material, research, philatelic auto-biographies, short pieces describing individual Scandinavian stamps and/or the story behind these.
To further incentivise membership all magazines are available for members on our website, both to read and to download, plus an extensive range of articles, some never published in print are also published on our website in the members section
With the shift to electronic distribution and stronger emphasis on virtual presentations, I wonder if one day we may even see a 'Virtual class' competition award for best websites etc?
Categories should be the same as the literary class, relevance, quality of material on display, user friendliness and accessibility. Comments and suggestions via the secretary
Happy new collecting season
