Philatelic exhibits, entered by collectors interested in showcasing their material, are one of the mainstays at many Local and Regional stamp shows, and are a major part of our Canadian National exhibitions.
These columns, an ongoing series in The Canadian Philatelist, discuss how to prepare successful exhibits according to the rules and guidelines of contemporary philatelic exhibiting. Each column is dedicated to a different topic, and each outlines a few of the best practices within the topic. Tips and techniques are included, and illustrative exhibit pages from actual exhibits are often included for discussion. As well, how judging criteria are applied in the evaluation of exhibits is covered with each topic in order to help exhibitors understand how their material is evaluated within competitive exhibiting.
These columns are now included on the website to encourage even more collectors to get involved in philatelic exhibiting. If you are not already an exhibitor, why not give it a try!
