Prestigious award for a stamp in the Isle of Man

Isle of Man Post Office’s Beijing Olympics miniature stamp sheet has scooped a top award at the Annual Best Foreign Stamp Poll in China.
The committee for the poll consists of key sponsors along with representatives from the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, the China Philatelic Federation and the Association for Promotion of West China Research and Development. The purpose of the poll, which involves more than 40 countries, is to enhance the relationship between China and foreign countries.
Stamps issued back in 2008 were evaluated by the poll committee in 2009 and the results have now been announced with Isle of Man Post Office securing the "Best Printing Award" for its Beijing Olympics miniature sheet. The sheet with its excellent theme and design and in particular its printing technique grabbed the attention of the judges.
• Beijing-based philatelist and Isle of Man Post Office’s representative in China, Charles Cao, attended the ceremony and collected the prestigious award.
To date, Isle of Man Post Office has successfully attended the Beijing 2008 Olympic Exposition, 2008 Beijing International Stamp and Coin Exposition and the 2009 China World Stamp Exhibition. This year Isle of Man Post Office will be attending the 2010 Beijing International Stamp and Coin Exposition in October and will be further promoting Isle of Man stamps in the China market.
• Dot Tilbury, General Manager of Isle of Man Stamps & Coins said: "We are delighted to have been recognised by the philatelic world in China and are grateful to Charles Cao for attending the awards ceremony on our behalf. China currently has almost 50,000 philately associations and universities in Fujian and Jiangxi offer elective courses in stamp collecting so this is a very exciting area for us to showcase our stamps". - write in a communique published by the Isle of Man Post Office.
