We are delighted with the news that three of our illustrators have won the prestigious Asiago International Award for Philatelic Art.
Commissioned by the United Nations Postal Administration, Gail Armstrong, Shailesh Khandeparkar and Russell Fei were asked to create stamp designs to mark the UN's Conference on Sustainable Development which took place in Rio last year. Along with some background material on the conference, each artist was given the theme of either Land, Sea or Air and encouraged to go and create something beautiful.
Gail, Shailesh and Russell have not only achieved this but have been crowned with an award which is given annually under the patronage of the President of Italy.
