VBAwards 2010 is offering a package of prize and sponsorship to the tune of £20,000 with support coming from well known companies such as: intuit, small business britain, adjug and crunch. The panel of judges include: Xenios Thrasyvoulou of PeoplePerHour.com, Doug Monro of Zoopla, Darren Fell from Crunch.co.uk, Michael Stephanblome of Adjug and more.
It's unusual to find a hobby website in this kind of category so each and every vote counts.
Cyprus Stamps specialise in collecting and selling Cyprus stamps online. They encourage and educate philatelists and hobby stamp collectors in the history and events in the country of Cyprus through stamps issued pre-Republic 1880′s and after Cyprus became a Republic in the 1960′s.
Cyprus Stamps is a husband and wife partnership which formed in 2008 after finding a small niche selling duplicate stamps from their collection on eBay.
Remarkably, Michele comments on how many collectors they have from their own country of Cyprus.
"A great many of our collectors hail from United Kingdom and USA but we also have a surprising amount of philatelists from Cyprus too! That came as a shock in the beginning.
We have met many people from all walks of life and the majority of them have become personal friends into the bargain. It's like having our very own stamp club!"
Winning this award would be a tremendous thrill and will also help us to grow our business and put us in a position to offer the more expensive and highly sought after British Commonwealth stamps issued by the country of Cyprus. On top of that, it's great PR for the fuddy duddy profile that is quite wrongly often given to philatelism!
