Milcopex 2019 Exhibits

Opportunities to Exhibit



Our World Series of Philately exhibition provides an opportunity for new and experienced exhibitors to tell a story using stamps, covers and other related material. It may be the story of a single stamp, a set of stamps, one area’s postal history or even your favorite subject illustrated using philatelic material. The Prospectus and Application for our WSP exhibits is below and on the documents page. We expect to be oversubscribed so early entries are encouraged. As an APS World Series of Philately show, the Milcopex Grand Award Winner is eligible for the annual "Champion of Champions: competition at Stampshow 2020.

In addition to our WSP exhibits, we will have two additional opportunities to exhibit. In keeping with our hosting of the Christmas Philatelic Club, exhibitors may enter a 4 or 8-page exhibit that can relate to any aspect of Christmas. Examples: Santa, Christmas trees, stockings, angels, snowmen, gingerbread cookies, winter scenes, nativity scenes, etc. Anyway that you can work the Christmas theme into your exhibit title will fulfill the requirements. The application for entry is below and on the documents page. There are no entry fees in this category.

Relating to the Pan African theme of Milcopex 2019 you are encouraged to enter up to two one-page exhibits to share your philatelic material and to promote the hobby to the public by making them aware of the wide range of African country stamps and covers. Each one-page exhibit must be on 8-1/2” x 11” vertical paper and in a sheet protector. The exhibit should have a title, some text on the page to tell visitors to the show why the stamp/s or cover is your favorite, how it fits into your collecting specialty, or perhaps an interesting or unusual fact about the item. There are no entry fees in this category. The application for entry is below and on the documents page.
