In this year’s edition, a jury composed of seven philatelic experts, scrutinised all the displayed entries based on the theme “Castles”. The jurors casted their closed ballots and they proudly announce Posti Group (Finland) as the winner of the 2017 EUROPA stamp Jury Prize with Anssi Kähärä’s Lumilinna snow castle.

The awards for the 2017 Jury competition were delivered to the postal philatelic community on Saturday, 16 September 2017, at Brussels Town Hall, during the Belgian Philatelic Grand Prix ceremony, where philatelists and dignitaries from all over Europe gathered.
