Positively Postal's A-Z of The U.K. mailart project - help!

Hi there everybody! As you may or may not know I launched a mailart competition in conjunction with some new Royal Mail stamp entitled "A-Z of the U.K." which were issued in the middle of October.

Unfortunately to date I have not had any entries so I am writing this today to ask you to take 10 or 15 minutes and try to make something for this competition and send it in. All the details are under this link and you could win some great prizes:


Thanking you in advance for your help and hopefully some entries!

Scott - Positively Postal.

Hi there,

Ruud, yes, that was a bit silly of me as of course mailart should indeed not be judged in such a way! I thought that prizes might be a bit of an encouragement but in this sense that is probably not the case. There is going to be a second part to this whole project which I think would be better to have open and with no judging. In the meantime if anybody (thanks E and Angel Vycki for your offers to enter)else could help me out on this occasion just to get it all kick-started then that would be fantastic, thanks! :) Scott.

Scott, I will send an entry to your project soon. Thank you.

It is true that I do not very want to be in competition with my friends mailartists. But, seen my production in red and black, there are few chances that an official jury of the British post office selects my sending... Then, why not?

Mail-Art that is juried is probably the reason you aren't getting any reaction. Mail-Art projects and exhibitions are supposed to be open to everybody without any jury.
