From December until 1st March 2012 stamp collectors from all over the world have been able to participate in the vote for "The 2011 Greenlandic stamp of the year". And many have used this opportunity.
The winning stamp was G472, the beautiful scenery stamp based on a photo by author and photographer Ivars Silis, born 1940. Even though Ivars Silis has reached 71 years of age; this is actually his stamp debut. The stamp was issued on 28th September 2011 and was POST Greenland's contribution to last year's joint issue with the SEPAC-countries in the cooperation between the Small European Postal Services, of which Greenland is a member.
Coming second in the competition was the stamp G471 by Anne-Lise Lovstrom and the third was G475 by Martin Morck.
