Some comments - and apologies for these being rather disorganised but I am short of time...
 
I have no doubt that there will be excellent stamps winning the contest for years to come. There were fewer entrants this year but the standard was very high.  There are plenty of people on the forum who make their own stamps and it's going to be the same brief every year so you all now have 11 months to design the next year's stamps (and/or the year after that too if you are feeling creative). AND you can work in teams so if you have a great idea for a stamp but not the skills to get it into a printable format (or vice versa!) then now is the time to talk to others about producing a joint effort. 
 
From a design point of view I think a 3 year cover would look better than a five year cover. The winning stamps to date will look good together, but adding another 2 into the mix might be a bit too much.
 
From a rarity point of view, we haven't produced that many sheets in the past so tearing up another sheet isn't going to make a huge amount of difference to any secondary market. They will always be 'rare'. And as Steve has pointed out, it's not whole sheets we are distributing, just singles, cancelled and stuck down. And not variants either, just the standard stamps.  [I will need to have a 'Forum' cancellation stamp made...]
 
The request came from a new-ish member but if it is going to cause ANY problems with the older members then let's stop it all right here and now and perhaps think ahead to something special for the five year anniversary.  Perhaps a printed proofsheet instead which could also include the variants and wouldn't conflict with the gummed examples?
 
Nothing is set in stone. I only saw the thread after a few replies had already come in so have been trying to keep the conversation going to gauge feedback.
 
Let's discuss it here a little longer before any decisions are made.

A three year cover would be fine with me! As would a proof sheet with variants... Both would be even better!

I can see this is going to take two years to sort out!  So I suggest we speed up the process by voting and this will also help Colin to know whether he has enough stamps left to make enough covers for everyone interested here, plus a few extra for those collectors who only pop in to the forum once a month.

The identity of this year's winner is revealed via the link in the op of this thread. You obviously have the impression that Admin is a terrible tease (alright, you're right, he is, but still...) to open up a thread entitled "We have a winner!" without then actually giving any information about which the winner is. LOL

Or do you mean the identity of the designer of this year's winner? In which case, it's probably a case of "ha, you must be joking!". LOL
