Milcopex 2020 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 2021.

In addition to our WSP exhibits, we will have two additional non-competitive opportunities to exhibit. 

Exhibitors may enter a 4 or 8-page exhibit dealing with the postal history of their hometown or any specific city using stamps, covers or postcards. The application for entry is below and on the documents page. There are no entry fees in this category. Your application is due by August 31, 2020.

A second new exhibiting category is specifically set up to encourage collectors to share their philatelic material and to promote the hobby to the public by making them aware of the wide range of collectible covers. This is to be a one page non-competitive exhibit. Examples of such covers include but are not limited to first day covers, airmail, advertising, registered, postal stationery, and picture postcards. Each one-page exhibit must be on 8-1/2” x 11” vertical paper and in a sheet protector. More information is included in the application.  The application for entry is below and on the documents page. There are no entry fees in this category. Your application is due by August 31, 2020.
