Stamp of the Year 2023

Our customers have voted and chosen the most beautiful stamp of the year 2023.

The winner was the beautiful miniature sheet released in connection with Martin Mörck’s stamp No. 1,000.
The stamp depicts Emil Krause’s painting from 1933 titled ”Returning from fishing.” Martin Mörck has
engraved the stamp, which, at 62 x 82 mm, is the largest hand-engraved stamp ever.

In second place is the miniature sheet ’60 Years at Sornfelli,’ showing the magnificent view of the Sornfelli
mountain, where the radar station ’NATO Early Warning Station Site 09’ was built in 1963. Photo: Jákup Brúsá.

Stamp No. 1000 - Cairn
In third place, we find another one of the major issues in 2023, namely stamp No. 1,000. The Faroese artist
Edward Fuglø designed the beautiful miniature sheet illustrating a cairn in the outback on a summer evening.
A summer atmosphere surrounds the cairn with seasonal plants, birds and animal life. Supernatural beings,
fairies and water kelpies are also part of the picture.

There has also been a draw among our readers, and the lucky winners have been notified directly.
Warm congratulations and thank you for participating.
