I saw many U.K. people visited my blog this morning(evening time in UK). All of them searched the keyword "FDC in Philately" from Google or Yahoo.
I don't know whether it has a competition refer to FDC in U.K.

Now, Let me explaine for you. Hope it will useful for you.

FDC = First Day Cover:
A cover bearing a stamp (set of stamps, miniature sheet or souvenir sheet) posted on the day of issue. It is a very popular collectible in philately field. First Day Covers usually have an illustration depicting an aspect of a subject of the issue and often include a brochure or info sheet which gives more details about the issue. If you want to send this cover to your friend, you must send it on its issue day.
