Students are being given the chance to design a set of postage stamps for the British Antarctic Territory.



Casco Philatelic Services, which designs, produces and distributes postage stamps to postal authorities across the world, has launched a competition open to all art students in full-time education in the UK.



The brief is to design a five-stamp set to mark the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Antarctic Treaty, which formalised the administration and management of Antarctica.



The five stamps, which can be in either landscape or portrait form, should not feature any national flags.



The winner will see their stamp designs produced, and also receive a cash prize of £750.



The deadline for entries is 31 March. For more information visit www.cascophilatelic.com.
