OXFORD PHILATELIC SOCIETY 2019 9-SHEET COMPETITION RESULTS

A satisfactory quantity of entries, and a good standard overall. Even with only nine sheets, it is important to include some form of plan on page 1.

2nd       Mike Kitson                UK Cancels in Panama

3rd       Tristan Brittain            Censored Mail of the Gold Coast

Judges’ Comments

The West German Posthorn issue: An excellent exhibit of a well-chosen subject. Suggest suitable material (President Heuss stamp/cover) be used to fill the large space ion the final page. The write-up should not quote catalogue values.

Censored Mail of the Gold Coast: Good material that would be enhanced by a better first page. Tabulate censor numbers and locations and describe the changed system used later. Match the plan to better page headers. Quote sources of information. Explain why the covers are in the order that they are shown.

GB Cancels used in Panama: Powerful material that could be shown to better advantage. Rethink the title to better reflect the content. Care should be taken to mount material to best effect and try to write less.

 

  1. Thematic Class

Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St Louis 12 11 3 10 10 7 5 10 68

D = Knowledge, Study & Research, Thematic [15]

E = Knowledge, Study & Research, Philatelic [15]

Results:

1st        Mike Payne                 Charles Lindbergh and The Spirit of St Louis.

2nd       Phil Cross                    The River Thames

Charles Lindbergh & The Spirit of St Louis.: A visually attractive entry, but the subject is too large for 9 sheets. Care should be taken with the use of non-philatelic material (sheets 5 and 9). The plan should be matched by sheet headers,

The River Thames: A good concept, but the execution requires a plan and a storyline. There is too much use of non-philatelic material. Perhaps consider an Open Class exhibit that would allow the use of steamer tickets etc?

1st        Alan Cowie     The Ashinoko Air Mail issue of Japan

Judges’ Comments

The Ashinoko Air Mail issue of Japan: A fine exhibit of rarely seen material. It would be enhanced by a better plan. The running headers are not needed. They should be replaced by headings that link back to the plan.
