PHLPost reveals 2015 Stamp Collection and Papal Visit "On the spot" Stamp Design Contest

by - November 27, 2014

I attended an event last November 24, 2014 for PHLPost to award 4 winners of their Papal Visit "On the spot" Stamp Design Contest held in Bayleaf Hotel, Intramuros Manila. Winners received 15,000 each for their respective category, Professional and Student category.

Mr. Dave Arjay Tan, as one of the winner for the professional category. His stamp design is about Philippines and Pope with helping hands.

Mr. Salvador Banares Jr; another winner for the professional category. His stamp design is a parent hugging a child.

Mr. Mark leo Maac, winner for the student category.

Here are the 4 winners of the "On the spot" Stamp Design Contest.

PHLPost also unveils their Christmas 2014 Stamp with barely less than a moth they've come up a design with the Filipino traditions and values of giving and merrymaking. Rodine Teodoro, the artist behind these design. Christmas Stamp showing the new born Jesus with Mary and Joseph in traditional Filipino clothing, the all time favorite Christmas caroling, "Pagmamano" - a symbol of respect for elderly Filipinos, and the traditional "Noche Buena" during the Christmas Eve. In the middle they put the traditional Filipino Christmas Lantern.

The program highlighted the presentation of the 2015 Philippine Stamp calendar with much more and new technologies lined-up starting with the issuance of the Pope Francis Visit special stamps to be printed in 3D Embossing and Hot Foil Stamping Coinage stamps. PHLPost also launched "Selyo Magazine", a quarterly publication of stamps which will be very useful for stamps collectors and an enthusiast like me.

I was astonished to know that there are special features that our PHLPost stamps has and will have in 2015. They are now using the modern printing technology and they will introduce the metallic printing, special composite perforation, satin finish, thermal ink and peel-off sticker stamps. At the event, Postmaster General Josie Dela Cruz said about the "Selfie Stamp". Your own picture to be printed as a stamp. I wanna have this and I'm sure many Filipinos will surely like and would want to have their faces printed on a stamp. How cool is that?

I am very happy to be part of this event as I have learned alot of things from one of our Government Agency. I love history and this definitely added on my knowledge.
